HIGH POINT-Wanda Marie Smoot Anderson, 87, passed away Thursday, September 20, 2012 at Westchester Manor. She was the loving wife of Walter Eugene (W. E.) Anderson to whom she was married for almost 70 years.

Mrs. Anderson was born on July 20, 1925 in High Point, a daughter of Rebecca Ellen Dennis Smoot. She served as the primary receptionist for Southern Furniture Exposition Building until 1986. In retirement, she continued using her receptionist skills while waiting on customers for W.E.'s picture framing business.

She was a lifetime member of Green Street Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School for 40 years, had leadership roles in Women on Missions, and established women's prayer groups. She was a very kind and loving person who always reached out to and helped anyone she could, whether by delivering flowers or food she prepared from home, or listening with gracious attention.

In addition to her husband, Mrs. Anderson is survived by a daughter Cathy M. Edwards and husband, Bill, of Apopka, FL; a son, Dennis Anderson of Bedford Hills, N.Y., with partner, Bill Sofield; a granddaughter, Jennifer W. Edwards and husband, Josh, of Jacksonville, FL and three great-grandchildren, Palmer, Caroline and Leighton Edwards; a sister-in-law, Grace Dyer of Thomasville; a brother-in-law, Jack Curlee of Thomasville; and many nieces and nephews. In marrying W.E., Mrs. Anderson gained the large family of sisters she had always hoped for. She is predeceased by her sisters-in-law: Ellen Towery, Dorothy (Dot) Curlee, Vera Curlee, and Beulah Lee Anderson.

A celebration of life service will be held at 11:30 a.m. Monday at Green Street Baptist Church, 303 N. Rotary Drive, High Point, with the Rev. Frank Hensley officiating. Visitation will be held at the church prior to the service, starting at 10:00 a.m. Burial in Floral Garden Memorial Park, will follow the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that memorial gifts be given to Green Street Baptist Church and designated for Missions.
