Funeral service for Rev. Walter Winston Sisco will be 1 p.m., Wednesday, March 3, 2021, at Mt Zion Baptist Church with burial in the church cemetery. Visitation is from 11 a.m. until the time of service. Reverends Brooks Porter and Zach Kilpatrick will officiate the service.

Rev. Sisco was born in Brookhaven, Mississippi, September 19, 1938, to Mitchell Sisco and Ettie Mae Havis Sisco. His journey on this earth was 82 years and he entered eternity February 28, 2021. Before answering the call to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Rev. Sisco served as deacon. He, along with his loving wife, Yvonne, pastored several churches for over 50 years of total service. He loved to spend time in God’s creation and gardening was a favorite hobby for him, but his family was the most important thing in his life, especially those grandchildren and great-grandchildren. His love of Jesus and sharing the gospel was the greatest part of his heart. He will be greatly missed by his family and all those who knew and loved him.

He is preceded in death by his parents; his precious wife after 54 years of marriage, Yvonne Newell Sisco; and his brother, Marvie Sisco.
