    I loved this woman she made me smile all the time. I am so glad that she ain’t suffering no more….. Rest In Peace miss Wanda

  2. Penny and family, so sorry for your loss. She was the sweetest person, always a smile and a hello when I saw here. I know mom and the other ladies will miss her terribly. She was always lending a hand to her fellow bingo players too. I always thought she looked like I knew her from somewhere and when I read this, it clicked. I had seen her many times as a photographer for Interstate. I will miss her smiling face when I finally get to go back in at the nursing home. It will seem strange not to be greeted by her. Love and hugs to all if her family. Wanda hold a spot for us until we meet again
