by Oct 9, 2012OBITUARIES0 comments

Willia Roberson Wrenn, 77, of Robbinsville went to be with her Lord on Oct. 5, 2012 while at the Mountain View Nursing Home of Bryson City.

Born in Japan, NC near Panther Creek, she was the mother of two daughters and one son.  She worked hard at putting them through school and made sure they had the right clothes to wear and plenty of food.  She was a great mother and a hard worker and leaves behind many great friends who will miss her deeply.

Willia cared for her husband who was disabled from two wars and her mother who had suffered a stroke herself and was disabled for nearly thirteen years.  While taking care of her family, Willia worked untiringly at and retired from Clifton Precision.  She cared for her husband until he passed away and then lost her Mother a few years later.  Later, she met her childhood sweetheart, DeWalt Hyde, and rekindled the relationship.  They traveled the United States together for many years (she had said, these were the best years of her life).  Her childhood sweetheart was by her side until the end.

She was cremated by request and there will be an evening memorial service for her at the Chapel of Long House Funeral Home.  The service will be from 6-8pm on Friday, Oct. 12. She will later be placed in her grave site in Old Mother Cemetery near Robbinsville.

Long House Funeral Home assisted in the final arrangements.
