Wanda Joyce Calhoun

May 4, 1931 — September 9, 2019

Wanda Joyce Calhoun, 88, of Kaufman, TX passed away peacefully at her home on September 9, 2019. She left behind a numerous amount of love, character, wisdom/wit, and items of her life-long memories and passion in everything that she has done (most of these are still appropriately tagged with her unique handwriting and marked with a price).  Wanda “Allgood” Calhoun was born on May 4, 1931 to Clyde Raymond and Irene Elizabeth Allgood in Anson, TX. She married Grover Calhoun on June 8, 1957 at the Bacon Home in Kaufman, TX, spending 55 years and creating several memories together before he passed away in 2013. Wanda has influenced many through her early years of working in education, teaching in both Kaufman ISD and Crandall ISD between 1956-1970.  Even then her job was never complete or solely in the field of education, she also owned Antique Shops and Malls, Shoe Stores and Fabric stores, Barn Shops, and those are just the additional few “businesses” she had. She enjoyed crafting, cooking, sewing, painting, pouring glasses of sweet tea and fixing a snack to anyone that walked in (most who knew her as “Aunt Wanda” or “Mammy”), and above all she thrived upon being an amazing host to all and in all venues of life.  Wanda was a life-long member of First Baptist Church of Kaufman. Her most precious memories were with her family, doing the numerous things she enjoyed most, and Sunday lunches (which were honestly any day/everyday) being present with her dearest loved ones! Those who preceded her in death are her parents, her husband, and her siblings: Terry Allgood, Shirley Edwards, and C.R. Allgood. She will be sorely missed and leaving behind those to cherish her memory are: her beloved daughter Tamara Stahlman and husband Mont, grandchildren: Callie Silvey and Cara “Annie” Stahlman, great grandchild: Jackson Silvey; numerous nieces and nephews, her extended family, church, community members, and friends who will miss her dearly.
