Elsie Louise Wade Wamsley

September 30, 1935 — January 4, 2024

Colonial Heights

Elsie Louise Wade Wamsley, 88, of Colonial Heights passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 4, 2024. Born September 30, 1935, she was the daughter of the late Kenneth R. and Elsie Oliver Wade, and was also preceded in death by her beloved husband, John Curtis Reginald Wamsley; and two sisters, Lillian Wright and Elaine Womack.

Louise married her childhood sweetheart, John “Moonie” Wamsley, who would become her lifelong companion and best friend. Their marriage of over 58 years was a testament to the enduring power of love, commitment, and faith.

Her devotion extended beyond her immediate family. She was a longtime and active member of Swift Creek Baptist Church, where her faith played a central role in her life.

One of Louise's greatest joys was spending time with her family. She cherished every opportunity to be surrounded by her loved ones. Her warmth and love created a strong foundation for her family, who knew her as “Annie”, leaving them with a lifetime of cherished memories.

She is survived by her four daughters, Wanda Balducci (Robert), Wendy G. Wamsley, Denise Underhill (Roger), and Lynette Pomaville (Alan); grandchildren, Paol Balducci, Lisa Sprague (Jason), Joe Balducci, Nick Balducci (Victoria), Mike Balducci, John Carty, Chad Underhill (Amber), Carolyn Underhill (Brett), Caitlin Blaisdell (Mike), Christiana Pomaville, Madeline Pomaville, A.J. Pomaville; great-grandchildren, Alyssa, Zach, Julianna, Bricen, Samuel, Curtis, Natalie, Matthew, Brayden, Blake, Regan, Layla, Annabelle, Evelyn; sister, Carol Wrenn (David); sister-in-law, Inez Minetree; and other extended family members.
