Wanda Marie Whitlow Hinshaw of High Point, NC, died peacefully June 18, 2006.  

Born August 29, 1927, a native of High Point and the eldest daughter of the late Webster L. and Nellie Kathleen Hicks Whitlow, also of High Point.  

She married the late Darius Marshal Hinshaw, Jr. of Central Falls, NC, on June 7, 1946.  Darius was in the Air Force where they traveled extensively throughout Europe and Japan.  As a new mother of a son, she found herself on a train heading toward Seattle, WA and caught a ship headed to Japan to join her husband.  The year was 1949.  If Wanda was afraid she didn't show it - she was always up for adventure.  

Wanda and Darius eventually settled in Oxon Hill, MD with their six children.  A graduate of Guilford College, she continued her studies throughout her travels.  She worked for the District of Columbia Public Schools and the Department of Human Resources - where she was actively involved in women's rights.  After retiring from the Department of Human Resources they moved to Star, NC.  Wanda was the Guilford County representative for the North Carolina Senior Tar Heel Legislature and worked diligently for the rights of seniors.  She was also a member of the DAR and Daughters of America.  

A loving wife, mother, sister, friend and a wonderful grandmother.  She enjoyed many things but most of all it was her family and friends she always had time for, a warm smile and always a hug.  She was opinionated and firm in her beliefs and an avid Canasta player.  

Proceeding her in her death were her parents, her husband, her son Marshal L. Hinshaw, her sisters Doris (Whitlow) Reihs and Marylou (Whitlow) George.  

Left to cherish her memory are her sisters and their husbands Patsy (Whitlow) and Jesse Wilson of Asheboro, NC., Phyllis (Whitlow) and James Cockman of Randleman and Anita (Whitlow) and Gary Turner of High Point.  Her children Jonathan D. Hinshaw of High Point, Debra (Hinshaw) and Vincent Savelli of Erie, PA, Janice (Hinshaw) and Mark Walker of Henry, VA, Pamela M. Hinshaw of Hillsbourgh, NC and Patricia (Hinshaw) and Jack Bentley of Tampa, FL.  Her grandchildren David and Michelle Hinshaw, Jason and Cora Hinshaw, Scott and Becky Hinshaw, Vincent and Angela Savelli, Andrea Savelli, Brittany Savelli, Denver Walker, Jessica Walker, Ayron Walker and Kayleigh Bentley and her great-grand children Zachary, Nolan, Emma, Meredeith, MacKenzie, Ryan and Vincent

Along with family and special friends too numerous to mention.  You know who you are and you are not forgotten.  

The celebration of her life will begin with a gathering of family and friends on Tuesday June 20, 2006 at 7-8:30 pm, at Cumby Family Funeral Service on Eastchester Drive in High Point and continue the celebration on Wednesday June 21, 2006 at 10 a.m.at High Point Friends Meeting on Quaker Lane in High Point with Pastor Billy Britt officiating.  The burial immediately following at Springfield Friends Cemetery in High Point.  

The family suggests in lieu of flowers memorial gifts may be made to the "Friends of North Carolina Senior Tar Heel Legislature" C/O Dean Burgess 400 W. 4th Street, Suite 400 Winston Salem, NC 27101.
