Virginia “Sissy” Stock Vanderpool, age 75, of Hazen, entered her Eternal Home on “Angels Wings” on January 8, 2021, at Springhill Baptist Health Center, North Little Rock.
Sissy was born on January 21, 1945. She was preceded in death by her parents, Cleveland D. Stock, Sr. and Margaret Stock, and brothers Del, Duke and William “Bill” Stock. She is survived by her soul mate James Freese of Hazen, Brother Bobby Terhune (Nancy) of North Little Rock, step-daughter Heather Vanderpool Zitzer of Little Rock, sister-in-law Kaye Stock of Hazen and several special nieces and nephews and special friend Donna Bednar.
Sissy was a life-time member of the Hazen United Methodist Church. She loved her church family and her Lord. Sissy was small and petite in stature, but she made up for that with her witty personality and determination. Those that knew her, were aware of her being able to hold her own in any situation. When you earned her trust, you earned her love and devotion. As her nieces and nephews were growing up, Sissy loved them as if they were her own children and spoiled them every chance she got.
Over Sissy’s lifetime, she had numerous employment adventures, but none compared to her employment for years with the Lagrue, Land & Irrigation Duck Club. The members were special friends and she loved them all like family.
A graveside service will be conducted by Bro. Chris Wright and Bro. Christian Van-Houten, Monday, January 18, 2021, at 2:00 pm at the Hazen Cemetery. Face Coverings and Social Distancing will be required. Memorials may be made to the Hazen United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 712, Hazen, AR 72064. Arrangements by Westbrook Funeral Home-Hazen.

Sissy was one of my very first friends when we moved to Hazen. Loved her and will miss her very much. Prayers for you all during this time.
Our memories of Sissy go way back to school days of the old two-story Hazen school building and the old wooden gym. As a cheerleader during pep assemblies, Sissy’s strong, dominant voice seemed to reverberate off the walls. She could light a fire of enthusiasm to get the crowd fired up for a ballgame. Her brother Duke, a classmate of mine, said Sissy took after her Dad, Mr. Clea, when it came to expressing her thoughts with determination.
The short, fleeting years of life fly by and as we age we cherish more and more the memories of the past and the people that stood out, people who made a memorable, permanent impression on others. Sissy was one of those people.
Our thoughts and prayers continue for Sissy’s family. She will be missed.
Sissy was always such an extraordinary person. She was insightful, willing to speak her mind, and so articulate in what she said. She was kind, and looked out for others. She was a hard worker who had a fighting spirit to the end.
We appreciated you so much Sissy, and we miss you. Thank you for all that you did for Gus and for me.
You picked a great man when you picked Jim, and Jim picked a great woman when he picked you.
Sissy was an absolute spitfire! A spirit much larger than her physical stature was matched only by her caring heart. We shared a love of puzzles and I think of her whenever I lay out pieces. Thank you Jim for loving and caring for Sissy like no other. Thank you Sissy for your steadfast devotion to the Duck Club and for the many lovely things you did for Gus and Baucum over the years. Such a privilege to know you! Rest In Peace and health my friend.
