October 3, 1933 - September 7, 2018
Wanda Phillips Poole Wanda Phillips Poole passed away on Sept. 7, 2018, after a long illness. Wanda was born on Oct. 3, 1933, in Shenandoah County, Va. She was predeceased by her father, Kenneth C. Fadeley; mother, Fern Golladay Zirkle; and stepfather, William M. Zirkle. She was married for over 54 years to James M. Phillips until his death on March 31, 2008. On Sept. 15, 2011, she married Robert W. Poole who also predeceased her. Following graduation from New Market High School, Wanda worked as a telephone operator and later for Aileen Manufacturing. She also was the manager of the Timber Hill Apartments in Timberville, Va., for over 15 years, until her retirement in 2008. Being part of a large extended family was one of Wanda’s greatest joys. She loved family reunions and get-togethers and was renowned for her potato salad based on her grandmother Golladay’s recipe. After enduring much physical suffering, she was tenderhearted and hated for others to be hurting. She was a cheerful giver who delighted to share anything she had. She loved to laugh and hear stories, but she did not always appreciate her brothers’ teasing. She is survived by Bill Coleman, whom she treated as a son, and Bill’s wife, Terri, and sons, Bradley, Jessie and Dustin. She leaves her brothers, Warren and Keith Zirkle; her aunt, Mary Lee Embrey; and her uncle, Wayne L. Golladay. She also leaves her nieces and nephews: Elizabeth Zirkle Mack, Lee Ann Zirkle, Kara Zirkle McCrae, Adam Zirkle, David Zirkle, Kevin Zirkle, and William Zirkle; and her many Zirkle and Golladay cousins. She will also be dearly missed by her family of friends at Timber Hill Apartments. Her service will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018, at 2 p.m. at Woods Chapel Independent Bible Church, 58 Splinter Lane, New Market, VA 22844. Following the service, an interment will follow at Cedar Grove Cemetery. Wanda’s family will receive friends at Theis Chapel in New Market on Sept. 10, 2018, from 7 to 8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial contribution to the Broadway Emergency Squad which came to her aid many times.
