Wanda was born on September 6, 1934 in Browning, Illinois.  She was married to Jack for 68 years and they were able to travel the country in their RV.  She helped raised her younger siblings, Stanley and Cheryl and two sister-in-laws , Bonnie and Calleen, on top of raising her own kids.  She also had a great deal to do with the up bringing of her grandkids.  She enjoyed traveling, adventures, reading, crossword puzzles, and gardening.  She found friendship and a sense of community amongst her neighbors in Mt. Greenwood.  She was known for saying what she meant and meaning what she said.   She was always the first one to help someone and the first one to be there to listen. 

Wanda was loved immensely by everyone who knew her and she will be greatly missed.  Her and Jack are finally together on this last great adventure.  Happy travels Mom.

Wanda will be cremated and the family will have celebration of life during the warmer months at a date TBD.
