Wanda Mead Pittman
April 6, 1923 – November 3, 2019
Wanda Mead Pittman, age 96, passed away on November 3, 2019 in Georgetown, Texas. Wanda was born April 6, 1923, in Wichita, Kansas, and she graduated from North High School in 1941. She lived in the Houston and Galveston area for most of her life.
A devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother, she is preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, Raymond E. Pittman, Sr. and her entire immediate family. She is survived by her 5 children, Raymond Edward “Ed” Pittman, Jr. (Pet); Susan Brown (Mike); Jon Pittman (Carla); Charlie Pittman (Joanne); and Dave Pittman (Cherrie), 12 grandchildren, 29 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great- grandchildren.
Wanda also leaves behind a host of friends, all of whom she cherished dearly. Family always came first, centered in her unconditional love. When you entered her home, her house was your house and you were immediately treated like family. Two of her favorite pastimes were listening to classic country and gospel music and watching her beloved Astros, Rockets, and Texans. She also enjoyed reading the bible, anything religious and true stories.
Wanda traveled to all parts of the globe with her husband attending American National Insurance Company conferences, cherishing fond memories of their many adventures by collecting photo albums of each one. She was also a Cub Scout Den Mother, eventually becoming head Den Mother for the entire pack.
A very special thanks to her caregivers over the last few years who became dear friends, Pam Kuchta and Gay Corbin.

Jon and I married july17,1971. I became a part of the Pittman family. Mom Pittman took me under her wing. From then on she would always tell me I was her second daughter just as I felt she was my second mom. You will always have a special place in my heart forever and always.

“Awesome” seems so cliche to describe this remarkable woman. I couldn’t have asked for a better mother-in-law. She was the best and will be greatly missed. Sending love, Pet.
