A private family graveside service will be held at the Shields Cemetery with Rev. Lee Jackson, pastor of Central Baptist Church in Bonham, officiating. Services are entrusted to Stevens Funeral Home, 400 W. Pecan Street, in Coleman.
She was born Wanda Lee Mann on July 18, 1931 in Lubbock to Wayne Mann and Nadine Lee Mann. Wanda grew up in different parts of Texas and went to work at an early age to help her family. She married Joe Bob Estes on June 5, 1949 in Fort Worth. Wanda was a seamstress for a short time then became a full-time mother and housewife. Her fervent adventures to the bingo hall and catching a bus to visit WinStar World Casino kept Wanda occupied. Wanda was a devout supporter of Rev. Jimmy Swaggart and would tune in to listen to him on Sunday mornings. Wanda was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She will be missed by her family and friends.
Wanda is preceded in death by her parents, Wayne and Nadine Mann; her husband, Joe Bob Estes; one brother, Jackie Mann; and one sister, Donna Mann.
She is survived by her children, Cleta Kay Jacobs and husband J.L. of Weatherford, Joe Wayne Estes and wife Connie of Bonham, Vicki Estes of Mineral Wells; her sisters, Sue Ellen Stepp of Shingletown, California, Dena Swepton of Redding, California; seven grandchildren; and multiple great-grandchildren.
