Wanda Louise Osborne Donnell, age 70 of Dickson, TN passed away on December 11, 2020 at her home with family by her side. She was born on August 27, 1950, in Nashville, TN to the late Phillip & Beulah Perry of Scottsboro, TN.
Wanda was the most selfless, compassionate, & humble woman anyone could meet. She was the true definition of unconditional love to all her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Though her family was her heartbeat, she extended her love as a caretaker to special needs children. She could light up a room with her smile that could never be forgotten. While her hope was anchored in the Lord, horses were her undeniable passion. They became her rescue through many difficult battles in her life. She was an emblem of strength and perseverance through the loss of her only son, becoming a single mother to 4 daughters, and her 20 year battle of cancer. She will truly be missed by her family and all who knew her.
Wanda is survived by her husband of 21 years, Larry Donnell; 4 daughters: Tammy Demoe, Kymberly Yates (Myron), Kesha Stiles (Michael), Tesha Goodgine (DeWayne); 1 step-son, Damon Donnell (Summer); 8 grandchildren: Candi, Ashley, Chelsie, Antoniette, Ethan, Maddie, Madilyn, and Grayson; 1 step-grandchild, Madison; and 4 great-grandchildren: Kaden, Paisley, Isabella, & Oliver; 1 brother, Dorris Perry (Helen) & 1 sister, Patricia Perry; and a number of nieces & nephews.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Christopher Osborne; 1 sister, Brenda Gibbs, and 1 brother, Randy Perry.
