Mrs. Waddell graduated from Camden High School and went on to continue her education at Dallas Bible College. She was a devoted woman of faith, with her last request being that her family continue to serve God and love one another. She prided herself in being a Christian, mother, and “memaw”.

She will be remembered for her love, passion, faith, and hard work ethic.
