Madden, Wanda Lee (Herring)

Wanda Lee Herring Madden, March 30th, 1938 - May 28th, 2016 Life Legacy If you knew her as Wanda, Wanda Lee, or Lee, you were blessed to know a beautiful wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. Wanda Lee's life began in Yell County, Arkansas on March 30th, 1938. During the first two years of her life, she moved, with her parents Walton and Juanita Rogers Herring, to Tulsa, Oklahoma. There she spent several of her early years. During these years she would travel back to Danville to spend summer vacations with her grandparents, Thomas John Henry and Mary Lena Francis Hunt Rogers and Herbert and Ollie Carrouth Herring. She also loved and appreciated several aunts and uncles who blessed her life throughout the years. They, each in their own way, loved and appreciated Wanda Lee as well. They, too, knew that they were very fortunate to have this wonderful niece. During these vacations, she learned to love not only her family but also she developed a love for animals. She would ride her horse, Lady, to the "Back Valley" with her Uncle Dale and help him check the cattle. Many times she shared this story and mentioned that it was some of the happiest times in her formative years. This love for animals continued throughout her entire life. She moved back to Danville and attended Danville High School. It was there that she met the love of her life, Albert Joe "Sonny" Madden. Sonny and Wanda Lee were married on April 10, 1954. Wanda Lee was 16 years old. Some said that it wouldn't last; however, those skeptics were wrong. Sonny and Lee had a storybook romance that continued throughout 62 years of marriage. They moved to North Little Rock and there Lee enrolled in school to finish her senior year. Sonny joined the United States Air Force. This proved to be a news worthy event. Wanda Lee was one of very few married students in North Little High School and the only one who wore her wedding band to school. School policy stated that students were prohibited to wear wedding rings to school. That love of her life was now away from her and serving his country. She was not about to remove the ring that meant so much to her. She was one who took her marriage vows seriously. After much publicity, involving the sympathetic mayor of North Little Rock and the not so sympathetic school officials, this undaunted and dedicated young bride left the North Little Rock School System and with that much loved ring still on her finger, moved back to her home town of Danville where she finished her senior year at Danville High School. After 7 years of marriage, the second love of her life came. They named him Kelly Joe, the only child born to Sonny and Wanda Madden. Here began the life legacy and posterity of 1 son, 4 grandchildren, Chase, Kane, Kayla and Kelyn and 6 great grandchildren, all of whom lovingly refer to her as "Sugar" referencing the love and care she lavished on each one of them. She devotedly moved with her Military Husband and lived in many parts of the globe. The most favorite was their home in Alaska. There they retired from the Air Force and began a new career in the Boating Industry. Both Sonny and Kelly followed these lucrative jobs and each one became Captain's of vessels. Because of their love for the sea and of the home they enjoyed together, they chose to stay in Alaska for 32 years. Kelly still works there today and maintains a home in Florida. While in Alaska, Lee worked for a period of time in the accounting department of a food service company. While this was successful, she made the choice to return to the job she enjoyed most, that being the care of her family. After moving back to Missouri, she and her husband bought and decorated a beautiful home with the collection of Native American Art that she and Sonny loved and had gathered throughout their lifetime together. Wanda Lee Herring Madden, writer of stories, collector and lover of books and art, craftsman, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to many, passed from this life on May 28th, 2016 at Mercy Hospital, in Springfield, Missouri. At a later date she will be laid to rest with her husband in a preselected place. There they will watch the sun rise and set over the ocean that both of them loved so much. The concept of death is but a change in life, not the end of life. Wanda Lee will be sorely missed by her loving husband and son, by her extended family and by all who knew her.
