Wanda Fae Trimble Traylor, age 86, of Emory passed away May 18, 2020.  She was born August 8, 1933, in Rains County, to the union of Clinton and Dollie Luckett Trimble. 

Wanda graduated from Emory High School with the class of 1951.  She married Delbert Traylor on June 30, 1951.  Shortly thereafter they moved to Dallas and later to Mesquite where she worked for a hat company and Southwestern Bell Telephone.  In 1955, they started their family and she became a full-time mother and housewife.

She and Delbert moved back to Emory in 1969.  She helped at the family owned Gulf Station for four years and then assumed bookkeeping duties and assisted Delbert and the boys at Traylor’s Garage and Wrecker Service. She was always preparing home cooked meals for the boys and Delbert, until the garage was closed. 

As a girl she attended Prospect Baptist Church, and was baptized at an early age in a stock pond.  She taught Sunday School, helped with vacation Bible school, and was actively involved in church functions at Elm Baptist Church until her illness prevented her from attending.

Wanda is survived by her daughter, Dianne and husband, Red Ferrell; two sons, David Traylor and wife, Cheryl and Randy Traylor and wife, Deborah, all of Emory; three brothers, Floyd Dean Trimble of Farmers Branch, Billy Gene Trimble and wife, Edith of Point and Leo Trimble and wife, Barbara of Hawkins; a sister, Sandra Stone and husband, Jimmy Don of Emory; 6 grandchildren, Clint Traylor, Chad Ferrell and Whitney, Shawnee Peacock and Matthew, Jayde Sustaire and Kevin, Stacy Smith and Justin, and Lacey Mills and Ryan; 13 great-grandchildren, Katy and Eli Traylor, Eric and Courtney Ferrell, Tucker and Tate Peacock, Kole and Kade Sustaire, Sheldon and Sawyer Smith, and Jaden, Jacey and Emma Mills; 4 step grandchildren, Lonnie Ferrell, Tim Ferrell, Shannon Rosenbalm and Mandy Duke; 9 step great-grandchildren; and numerous other loving family and friends.
