Wanda was a homemaker for most of her life. She was known as a person who was honest to a fault, who would shoot it to you straight, and that was one of her greatest attributes that her children want to carry on. She was also known as a funny and extremely caring woman that had a huge heart and would give her shirt off her back to you.
She enjoyed gardening, painting and remodeling. In fact, she made it a project to redo a different room in her house every year. She often found herself in reading a good book, especially recipes that she would find and try out those meals on her family. Wanda was a wonderful baker and her family enjoyed her cookies.
