Wanda Chavis Gainey

With profound sadness the Gainey family announces the passing of Wanda Chavis Gainey on Sunday, June 4, 2023.

A lifelong resident of Rockingham, she was born July 13, 1948 to the late Cosby G. and Dorothy Hendrix Chavis, whom she dearly missed always. She attended First Presbyterian Church and had been the owner and operator of Oldies and Goodies Antiques. She was a faithful wife for 50 years to Eugene Carol Gainey, who passed away December 8, 2017. In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by a dear sister, Sharon C. Kiker and beloved nephew, Jon Michael Robich.

She was the devoted and loving mother to Nicolle Gainey and Leslee Greene; cherished grandma to Morgan Taylor (Jonathan), C.J. and Caroline Greene; proud great grandma of Teagan and Autry Taylor; dear sister to Ron Chavis (Lee), Diane McElligott and Caron Robich (John) and beloved aunt to many nieces and nephews. 

As we grieve her passing, we will take comfort in knowing Wanda and Carol will be together again for eternity as they are laid to rest at 2:00 pm on Friday, June 9, 2023 in Old Northam Cemetery. Family and friends are invited to join us as we celebrate her life at that time. The family will gather at her home on Thursday, from 3:00 pm – 7:00pm if you would like to stop by and share memories. 

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the staff of the ICU at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital – Richmond Campus and the staff of Richmond County Hospice for their kind and compassionate care of our mother. 

Memorial contributions may be made in Wanda’s memory to the Richmond County Humane Society.
