I just lost my Aunt, my Mother, my Sister. my Friend. All roles filled in my life by Wanda. Being almost 20 years older she was married and out of the family home when I was born. We grew closer as sisters as the years passed.. We were always there for eachother. When people have said"half sister" I quickly say no. she is my sister. We called each other every night at 6 and closed with "I love you" and "see you soon", both of which I say now with a lump in my throat. Love you Sis.

Wanda was a wonderful mentor when I worked with her at Security National Bank during my college summer breaks. I have fond memories of her. She was truly a groundbreaker for women in the workforce, and loved her family as well as her work. May she rest in peace.

Her son, Ricky, was like a younger brother. My strongest memories of youth were the many Christmases we spent with her and her family. It wasn't until I was almost ready to graduate from Albion HS that I
