You are so loved mamaw. As a nurse caring for the elderly, I can't take everyone at Adams County Manor enough. You brought that sparkle of mischief everywhere you went. Enjoy your peace ❤

I am so sad to hear this news. Over the past year and a half I’ve had the pleasure of aiding Wanda in her daily activities, having talks, laughing, crying together. She was like a grandmother to me. I would go to her for advice and she would gladly give it to me. I’m gonna miss her laugh, her hugs, her kind words and her infectious personality. I love you Wanda, I’m so sorry honey! Until we meet again. Prayers for the family.

Wanda was definitely one of the sweetest ladies I've ever known, always thinking of and worrying about others and the very definition of a "social butterfly" as I often called her. I'll always remember that infectious laugh of hers. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and I hope you all find peace and comfort in knowing she without a doubt left an impression on everyone she met.
