Mrs. Wynoma D. Sansing died on October 3, 2020 while at Clinton Healthcare Nursing Facility, Clinton, MS. Visitation will be 12:30-2:00 pm on Wednesday, October 7th at Lakewood Funeral Home, followed immediately by a graveside memorial service. Interment will follow at Lakewood Memorial Park Cemetery.

Wynoma Falillian Davis was born on February 3, 1926, in Heidelberg, MS, the 3rd of 11 children of Edward Howard and Madie Adeline Smith Davis. She spent most of her childhood in and around Waynesboro, MS where she graduated high school in 1944.

She met her husband, George Sansing, while he was still in college at Mississippi State and they married upon his graduation in August 1952. They moved to Jackson, MS where he worked for the telephone company and she was a homemaker.

She and her family joined Oak Forest Baptist Church, in Jackson, in 1964 and served there many years. She was active in church and community; she loved teaching Sunday school, working with children, volunteering at community nursing homes, and worked several times at the polls. Her greatest joy was taking care of her family.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, George Marvin Sansing, Sr., her parents and brothers Jack, E.B., Talmadge, Johnny Paul, Claude Ray, and James; and sisters Ouida, Earline, and Christine.

She is survived by sons George Marvin Sansing, Jr. (wife Beth), and James Edward "Ed" Sansing; a brother Bobby Davis (wife Earline); her granddaughter Suzanne Catlin (husband Mike); one great-grandson, and many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the staff of Clinton Health Care for their care of Wynoma in her last days. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the MS Baptist Children’s Village or French Camp Academy.

Wynoma D. Sansing

Mrs. Noma was one of the sweetest, most humble people we have ever had the privilege to know. A true Southern lady, she had a demure, polite manner. When you talked to Mrs. Noma she was animated and enthusiastic, especially when talking about her family. With gentle kindness, she was willing to do whatever was asked of her to serve her God or others. She was so proud of her sons and Suzanne. We wish we could have seen her with her great-grandson; what a joy he must have been to her!

We were already gone from Oak Forest Baptist Church when Noma told her beloved husband, George, farewell; but we are certain their reunion in heaven was a great joy, because we can hardly imagine her without him.

George, Eddie, Beth, and Suzanne, our prayers are with you as you celebrate the long, fruitful life of your Proverbs 31 mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. Her legacy continues in all of you. We are thankful we were able to know her and serve God with her. What a blessing that your family circle with be unbroken and you all see her again one day.

With love, prayers, and fond memories,
Dr. and Mrs. Gary Blair

Growing up I lived next-door to the Sansing’s. I have many, many wonderful memories of both of them. The thing that sticks out the most to me though is that no matter what they were doing when I came over, they would stop and talk to me for hours. They were truly two of the sweetest people I’ve ever known.
