Ms. Wanda L. James, age 79, of Glen St. Mary, Florida, formerly of Olive Hill, Kentucky, departed this lifeJanuary 20, 2021 at her residence.
She was born March 9, 1941, in the Fultz region of Carter County, Kentucky, a daughter of the late Charlie Wayne and Noraine Hall Fultz.
She was a former member of the Olive Hill Church of the Nazarene, and held strong to her belief as a child of our Lord. She was retired from Ashland Oil, Inc. in Lexington, Kentucky, as a service manager.
She was always moovin and a groovin and kept a smile on her face. Bubbly and infectiously happy, she never met a stranger. Optimistic, outgoing, talkative, fiercely independent, inquisitive, selfless, spunky and strong are a few words to describe her and above all, loving, supportive and protective of those she loved. She was an avid sports fan. She loved cheering on her children in anything they did as well as watching the UK Wildcats or rooting for the underdog. Nothing tickled her more than to have music playing and dancing up a storm, or popcorn and a Elvis movie, reading or a good conversation. She loved life, her family, and her friends, and youd often hear her say keep on smiling.
Wanda is survived by three sons, Michael James (Robin) of Jacksonville, Florida, Scott James (Joan) of St. Augustine, Florida and Barry James of Westminster, Colorado; one daughter, Kelli McIntosh of Saint Augustine, Florida; five grandchildren and three great grandchildren; one brother, Jim Fultz (Judy) of Flatwoods, Kentucky; two sisters, Carolyn Sue Burton (Bill) of Lexington, Kentucky and Bonnie Hall (Allen) of Nicholasville, Kentucky. She also leaves many other family members and friends who will sadly miss her.
