Born on Nov. 18, 1918, in Williamsport, W.Va., she was the daughter of the late Thomas R. Kent and Mahalia (Clifford) Kent. She was also preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, John W. Wormack Sr. in 1993; a son, Airman First Class, Jerry W. Wormack in 1967; and a son-in-law, Robert Darden in 1995. Mrs. Wormack was a dedicated wife and mother. She was a very active member of Ebenezer Baptist Church for over 60 years, a pianist for many years, and a volunteer for the American Red Cross, HRDC, and at Memorial Hospital.
Mom was able to live these past 82 years to the fullest because she believed in her favorite scripture, which says, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:13).

Stewart, Cumberland; a sister-in-law, Leona Wormack, Cumberland; eight grandchildren, Keith, Karen, Pamela, Jason, Rebekah, Leah, Rachel, Micah; and numerous nieces and nephews.
