Wanda Lou Archer

October 19, 1931September 1, 2019

Wanda Archer, 87, passed away on September 1st, and has gone to Heaven to join her parents, husband and 4 siblings. She was born in Aubrey, Tx on October 19, 1931. She was a terrific Mom, the best, to her 2 sons, and loved her granddaughters and great granddaughter very much. Some words that come to mind when we think of Wanda are, love, kindness, selflessness, generosity, courage, strength, hardworking, integrity, and a great Christian lady. She loved to cook and she was very good at home style cooking, being raised on a farm. It makes us smile just thinking about her cream gravy. Her interests besides family included her dogs, reading, walking for exercise, church activities, working in her yard, and watching all kinds of sports on television. Her favorites were her beloved Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks, and Texas Rangers. She also loved watching professional golf.

She married her husband, O.H. “Reno” Archer in 1952, and they moved around North Texas as their careers with Southwestern Bell sent them to numerous towns and cities, finally landing in Cleburne, in 1962. They raised their 2 sons there and continued their work with SW Bell until their retirement. They were happily married for over 50 years.

She is survived by her sons and their wives, Terry (Karen) and Gary (Judy). She’s also survived by her granddaughters, Ashley (Brandon) and Kelsey (Spenser), and her great granddaughter, Avery. The visitation will be held on Friday, September 6, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Moore Funeral Home 1219 N. Davis Dr. Arlington, TX in the South Chapel. The funeral service will follow at 12 p.m.
