Wanda was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend that

would do whatever she could to make your heart smile. In her working

years she was a wonderful hairdresser and a devoted house cleaner.

After her retirement she enjoyed aiding to those who needed

assistance or just a friend to lean on. She had a passion for adventure

that took her many places in the world like Uganda in Africa, Spain,

Italy and her favorite, the Netherlands. She loved hosting and having

friends and family over. She was the sweetest soul with the brightest

spark in her, and her spark will remain with us beaming through the

clouds every morning knowing heaven's new angel is watching us

closely. African Children's Charity (ACC) was Wanda's favorite charity.
