Vaunda Belle McMenamy

Vaunda Belle McMenamy was born on February 21, 1923 in Mesquite, TX to M. L. (Mack) and Ona (Ballard) McMenamy. She passed from this life at 10:00 AM on July 09, 2017 in Dallas, TX.

The family moved to Van Alstyne, TX and Vaunda spent her formative years in the VA school system. She graduated in the class of 1941. Shortly after completing school she moved to Dallas to begin her career and never married. Her younger siblings were her children, and the nieces and nephews her grandchildren.

Vaunda was strong, loving, smart, (she never stopped learning and forget trying to beat her in trivia, impossible) but most of all she was loyal and steadfast to a fault.

Her parents, two brothers and four sisters precede her in death. Survivors include three brothers, Bobby of Bonham, TX, Charles (and wife Doris) of Denison, TX, Larry (and wife Betty) of Parker, TX and two sisters Gwen Marr and Kathy Rogers-Farrell both of Van Alstyne, TX and numerous nieces and nephews and special cousins Pauline Tyler and Loveta Franklin of Arlington, TX.
