Etta, with her sweet spirit and smile to match, was always a joy to be around. She was always welcoming everyone to come in and sit with her to visit and eat. Etta loved to cook and enjoyed sharing with her family and friends. She was notorious for her fried pies. She enjoyed sewing, quilting, gardening and working in her flowers. After retiring from The Waldron Furniture Factory, Etta had even more time to do the things she enjoyed. As active as Etta was, her family was the highlight of her life. Time spent with each of her grandchildren and great grandchildren was most precious to her. She especially enjoyed every opportunity to make memories with her great great grandson. There was no doubt of the love and care Etta had for her family.

Etta is also survived by one sister, Madie Plum and one brother James Wagner both of Waldron, Arkansas. Etta will be missed by all that knew her and the many whose lives were impacted by her including a host of nieces, nephews, extended family, friends, wonderful neighbors and loved ones.
