    I have many memories of Sister Wherry. One of my fondest is when she lived across from Lincoln Park on Roosevelt St, I believe it was. As a young girl, Cynthia Davis Jordan and I, along with her little sisters, would often walk across the park to the Wherry's house. It never failed when we got there Sister Wherry was always doing the same thing. She had an organ and would sit and play that organ and sing Zion songs unto the Lord. I don't know where everyone else dispersed to when we got there but I was planted by Sister Wherry as she played that organ from the time I got there until the time we decided to leave. I loved hearing her sing and play. I would ask her to play the song again or if she could play a certain song and she would go at it. I was so fascinated by her passion for the Lord and her ability to play that organ. I know she is smiling, dancing, and can hardly get a word out due to being overjoyed with the joys of heaven and the glory of the Lord that has been revealed; because to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. He is ultimate joy and she's in His presence forevermore. So family, take solace in that because she made her election and calling sure. May the Lord bless you and keep you all as you cope with moving forward without her. ~Sándra Simpson~

    I met Sis. Wherry when I first moved to Wichita Falls almost 45 years ago. She loved the Lord and was a shining light everywhere she went. Although she will be missed on Earth, she doesn't regret leaving us for her Heavenly home. Condolences to her family. Glenda Laubscher

    There is no one in this world like your mother. She was a special person, and she will always be with you. I met Miss Lou Ann through working with Horace. Such a dear couple. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Sheila Tucker
