Mrs. Wharton was born on June 23, 1937, in West Memphis, AR, but has called Desoto County home for many years. Mrs. Wharton enjoyed many things such as the "Golden Girls," church, traveling (cruises), and was a huge animal lover. Since her religion played an important part of her life, she was also a proud and faithful member of the Bible Study Fellowship (community group) and the United Methodist Women's organization. Mrs. Wharton loved her family more than anything, she cherished all the memories she has made with her loving family and friends. Mrs. Wharton will truly be missed by those closest to her.
