Willadean (Burns) Cole

 

Willadean (Burns) Cole was born on August 4, 1937 and passed away on September 18, 2022 at the age of 85.  She was preceded in death by her parents Pleasant T.  and Ollie Mae Burns, as well as her husband William (Cotton) Cole, who she married on September 15, 1954.   Her children Renae Bradley, William (Bill) Cole, and Keith Cole preceded her in death.  Her siblings, Elma Fentress, Libby Amburgy and Alfred Burns also preceded her.  She is mourned by those she leaves behind; her son Michael (Rosemary) Cole and daughter in law Patricia (Victor) Shults as well as her siblings; brothers Harry Burns and Alvey (Alice) Burns and sister Lovelle McGowan and her grandchildren; Holli (Rick) Bradley-Ballard, Heather (Greg) West, Nathanial Bradley, Cheryl Cole and Thomas (Ashlee) Cartwright, her great grandchildren; Tate West, James Ballard, Alex Ballard, Tristan Fraley, Logan Cartwright, Alexis Cartwright and Aria Cartwright.  She leaves behind an extended family of brothers and sisters in-law, nieces, nephews and cousins to mourn her passing. The family would like to extend special thanks to her caregiver Noreen McArthur and Smoky Mountain Home Health and Hospice for their care during her illness.  Thank you to Denny Blain Jr., your visits meant the world to her.  Her niece Lisa (David) Carter's support and kindness to the family during this difficult time has been immeasurable. Dean’s lifelong vision problems never prevented her from living a full life, she retired from Tennessee Handbags and continued to live life to the fullest from raising her family to gardening to even venturing onto the roof to clean her gutters.  Her independent spirit will be loved and remembered by those who knew her.  Receiving of friends will be September 21, 2022 at Swannsylvania Baptist Church from 10:00 to 12:00 with funeral services to directly follow, after which she will be laid to rest beside her husband William at Swannsylvania Baptist Church Cemetery.  Donations may be made at Farrar Funeral Home Dandridge to help the family with Funeral expenses
