Obituary for Wanetta Denton

A hard-working and generous fighter, Wanetta Denton, age 51, of Spring Valley, passed away Thursday, May 14th, 2020.

Wanetta was born on December 15th, 1968 to Michelle Wanetta (Downs) and Carlos Ewell Jackson. Wherever she worked, she worked hard, most recently at Honey Baked Ham in Centerville. She loved being in a position that allowed her talk to people, especially when they had a sweet baby she could admire. She loved to make food and even dreamed of having her own shop, featuring her famous, no recipe, little of this, little of that, potato salad and deviled eggs. Wanetta loved her family, friends, and her animals, and enjoyed spending time with each of them. She enjoyed KFC, listened to all types and styles of music, and was always right (even when she was wrong).

Wanetta is preceded in death by her biological parents, and adopted dad Bill Baker. She will be forever remembered by her other half Timothy Brill, daughters Cynthia (Doug) Becker and Kristin Denton (Kyle Cloud), grandchildren Jerry Wayne Becker, and Mia Nicole Becker, adopted mom Betty Baker, 2 sisters, 3 brothers, adopted sister Aimee Shannon, and dearest friends Shelley McPherson, Jeff Kingsolver, and Billy Cooper.
