Obituary for Wanda Gilbert

Mrs. Wanda M. Gilbert, 76, of Little Rock departed this life May 22, 2023. She was born July 8, 1946 in Chicago, IL to the late Arthur C. Ganaway and Willie Mae Shelton Radley.

She is preceded in death by her parents Arthur C. Ganaway, Edward and Willie Mae Radley; sisters Gennie R. Gammage and Ingrid I. Ganaway; brothers  Arthur Ganaway Jr. and Michael Ganaway.

Wanda was the eldest of nine children. She attended elementary and high school in Chicago. The family would later move to Little Rock, Arkansas where they made Granite Mountain their home. She gave her life to Christ at an early age and became a member of the Greater Mt. Carmel Baptist Church in Higgins where she served for many years and was still a devoted member. She loved to sing and found her place in the church choir.

Wanda was a dedicated mother to her one child Errol Harvey. She was a pillar to our family and helped care for her siblings as well as her nieces and nephews throughout the years. One of her favorite things to do was to go fishing and she enjoyed the outdoors.

She is survived by her husband Oscar Gilbert; son Errol Harvey; siblings Larry "Brian" Ganaway, Broderick Ganaway, Tauheed Salaam, and Gisele Holloway; three grandchildren; one great-grandchild and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
