Obituary of Wilma Faye Callen

     Wilma Faye Rust Callen, of Winchester, TN passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on Friday, July 31, 2020 at the glorious age of 90 years young.

     She was born in Covington, KY on August 20, 1929; the daughter of the late Joseph and Iva Rust. Wilma had worked at Sizemore Manufacturing and the Internal Revenue Service but was also a dedicated homemaker who loved taking care of her home and her family. She was a member of Broadview Missionary Baptist Church and in her spare time enjoyed golfing, flower gardening and collecting glassware. Her greatest joy, however, was spending time with her beloved family whom she cherished deeply.

     Wilma was preceded in death by her devoted husband, Harry Austin Callen.

     Those surviving to carry on Wilma’s legacy include her caring daughter, Judy (David) VanBuskirk; grandchildren, Michael Kasaba, Rich (Susan) VanBuskirk, Angie (Dennis) Parrish and Joanna Williams; 11 great-grandchildren; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other close relatives and friends.
