Wanda Lynn Whitten, 67, of Jerome, passed away on April 23, 2014 following a 10-year battle with brain tumors.

She embraced life to the fullest, never met a stranger and touched the lives of many. She was an avid collector of cookbooks and had a passion for cooking, sewing, quilting and painting but nothing surpassed her love of family.

Mrs. Whitten is survived by her husband, E.L Whitten of Jerome; her son and daughter-in-law, Mike and Mary Whitten of Greenwood; her mother, Rosie Bailey of Pine Bluff; her brother and sister, Ray Breckenridge of Pine Bluff and Jean Armitage of Sheridan; and many other family members who loved her.

One brother, Clyde Bailey, precedes her in death.

No service will be held. Arrangements by Roselawn Funeral Service and Crematory in Pine Bluff.

Memorial donations may be made to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences-Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute for brain tumor research, 4301 W. Markham St., #716, Little Rock, AR 72205.
