Staff Reports's picture

Azilee Allen Wham, 93, of Greer, went to be with the Lord on July 8, 2017.

Born March 1, 1924, in Athens, Georgia, she was the daughter of Birdie and General Allen. Orphaned at an early age, she was raised at her beloved Thornwell Orphanage, where she met her lifelong love, Tom at 12 years of age. They married when Tom was drafted at the outbreak of WWII and were together for 63 years before Tom's death, 10 years ago. Now they are united again and areĀ in the arms of Jesus.

She leaves behind her daughter Patsy Wham Robertson; granddaughters, Tricia Robertson and Angela Robertson; great granddaughters, Heather Rook and Madison Reamer and great great-grandson, Brandon Rook.

She was predeceased by her husband, Tom Wham, and grandson Rondal Kyle Robertson.

There will be a private family service. Donations may be made to Thornwell Home for Children, Clinton.
