With the passing of Aunt Wanda I feel great sadness for the family and great joy for her as I know she is with our Lord and Savior this day. She was a dear and special lady whose light shone so brightly it will persist.
I am so sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. I have many memories of her at the church going back several decades. It has been so nice to see her at church in the past few months, when she was able to make it. Roxie, you have become a very important part of my life and I am sure the you will all get your strength from God, to get you through this loss. I wish I could have attended the service & Memorial, but have had a little set back after my surgery. God bless you all. Remember…He is always there with you! All my love!

Prayers for all the family members. I have missed talking to Aunt Wanda. She was always the best Aunt anyone could ask for!

I will always remember Wanda and her sweet, sweet spirit and smile. Never complaining, always happy and positive. She is greatly missed by all her friends here at Nottingham Health & Rehabilitation. Our love and thoughts to all her family.
I always remember Wanda’s sweet smile and encouraging spirit. She was one of the kindest women I’ve ever known. She poured out love on everyone around her. Now she is surrounded by Love, and her smile must be bigger than ever. But the world has lost a very sweet spirit.
Praying for all the family love and miss you all. We will miss Aunt Wanda so much. I know Aunt Wanda and Uncle Bobby, Grandma and Grandpa Wright and Uncle Jimmy are having a big reunion together.Love Kari Jolly Cook (Great Niece) and family
Please know we are thinking of you in your loss and pray for your continued thoughts of peace of your dear Mother and Grandmother.
