On Sunday, March 9, 2014, Wanda Lee McKinstry, age 83, passed away in Pinckneyville, Illinois. Born on March 11, 1929, near Pyatt’s Wye, she was the daughter of Lucian Pyatt. She married George Edgar McKinstry on July 30, 1955, at Galum Presbyterian Church. Together they shared 55 years of marriage.
She was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 42 years old. Although she endured the disease for 42 years, she never questioned God’s ability to heal her. She never lost faith in Him and in the power of prayer. During her final months, she gathered with her swimming friends and celebrated their birthdays in a celebratory way. The funeral home had the honor of arranging the memorial service and burial.
