M. Janet  Rider
M. Janet "Wrennie" Rider went to her forever home Feb. 4 and was reconnected with the love of her life, Jerry Rider, who preceded her in death in August 2014. They were married Jan. 27, 1967, and up or down, thin or flush they always stood by each other's side.
She passed peacefully at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, with her family at her side. She fought a courageous battle with cancer during which time not once did she ever lament "Why me?"
She enjoyed gardening and tending to her flowers, quilting and especially making Harley-Davidson T-shirt quilts to donate to the Toys for Tots auction and cooking. Family gatherings will never be the same without some of her famous dishes. She retired in 2014 from Washington Community Schools as the head cook and was always proud to be known as one of the "lunch ladies."
She is preceded in death by her parents, Ed and Ruth Wade, and also an older brother, Billy Wade. She is survived by two sons, Bentley (Norma Jean) Rider and Brock (Julie) Rider; two older brothers, Robert (Carol) Wade, Tom (Marilyn) Wade; and a sister, Judy (Lonnie) Barber. She is also survived by five grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild; along with many nieces and nephews that she loved very much, and who only knew her as Aunt Wrennie.
Funeral Services will be Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020, at 1:30 p.m. at Faithway Baptist Church, with Pastor Terry Fletcher officiating, with a visitation from 11:30 a.m. till the service time. Burial will follow at Bethany Cemetery. A visitation will be Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2020, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Ed Lee Mortuary Downtown Chapel.
