Graveside services for Wanda Anita Sorgee Clayton, 96, of Whitehouse will be held on Saturday, February 19, 2022, at 10:00am at Rose Hill Cemetery under the direction of Stewart Family Funeral Home with Dr. Chris Pulliam officiating. Mrs. Clayton passed away on February 11 at Providence Park nursing facility in Tyler. She was born on October 5, 1925 in Memphis, Texas to Ave Lee and Ralph Guy Sorgee. She graduated from Stamford High School and later Tyler Junior College. After years of being a stay-at-home mom, she worked for the Texas Health Department before retiring in the 1980s. She was a member of Green Acres Baptist Church for many years. Mrs. Clayton was preceded in death by her parents, a son, William Leslie Clayton, and her brother, Lamar Sorgee. She is survived by her loving family: son, Alan Clayton (Whitehouse), daughter, Tricia Anderson (Whitehouse), granddaughters Jennifer Chang and husband Keye in Florida, Jessica Reeves and husband Danny in Idaho, and Jackie Gutierrez and husband Dan in Tyler; her cherished great grandchildren: Ella, Rex, Lloyd, and Winnie Chang; Tessa and Rhett Reeves; and Levi, Noah, and Meghan Gutierrez. Also two nieces, Mary Wink and Sherri Kyle who loved her dearly, plus many wonderful cousins and friends. She was known as Wanda to family and long time-ago friends but Anita to most. She loved her lord, Jesus, and never met a stranger. Conversations with her started easily and she would usually know a lot about her new “friend” very quickly. She was also a fervent care giver to any of her friends who needed it. Once homebound, her biggest delights other than family were reading, watching and feeding the birds, loving on her pets, and tending to her roses. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the charity of your choice.
