Wanda Jean Scott Sharbrough

Wanda Jean Scott Sharbrough was suddenly taken from this life due to complications from a blood clot in her lung on May 17, 2019 in Katy, Texas.

She was born on November 21, 1932 in Goose Creek, Texas to Hugh Edward Scott and Ollie Ramoth Tucker. She is preceded in death by her parents, her sister Nelda Hughdyne Scott Sanders and brother Mark Gordon Scott Sr.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 68 years, James Powell Sharbrough; her daughter Rebecca Lynn “Becky” Sharbrough Bailey and her husband John of Industry; her son James Bryan “Beau” Sharbrough and his wife Christine of Dallas; her son Richard Scott “Rick” Sharbrough and his wife Leslie Dunlap of Katy;  and her son Carter Ray “Corky” Sharbrough of Katy -- by her grandchildren: Jamie Elise Bailey and her partner Kiley Sims; Eryn Catherine Bailey Davoody and her husband Dune; Carolyn Shea Bailey; Bailey Joy Sharbrough White and her husband Cody; McKenna Sharbrough Sutton and James Richard Sharbrough -- by her great grandchildren: Ayden, Owen, Maggie & Jasper Davoody; Artemis White; and Dicey Sims.

Wanda’s great joy in life was her family, and she was theirs. They were her absolute reason for living and she delighted in getting news and photos of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved to cook and she loved to eat. She filled our lives with joy and laughter and her passing is deeply mourned.

Her body will be cremated in accordance with her wishes. Though we know that she is with her Lord Jesus Christ, we request your continued prayers for the family during this time of grief and temporary separation.

A memorial service to celebrate the life of Wanda Sharbrough will take place on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at the Bolin Chapel on the grounds of Katy’s First Baptist Church with Rev. Tom Bolin and Rev. Wayne Fancher officiating.

Please direct memorial donations to the American Diabetes Foundation, or to the Masonic Home and School of Texas.
