We (family Briggs) were thrilled when we heard that Darryn had finally met 'someone special' and that soon having the stigma of being the only 'outsider' would soon be shared...And share she did! She won over the inlaws in a matter of minutes, and family dinners were never the same afterwards! Her sunny smile lit up the room and soon stories and laughter were the setting for the evenings together. We hit it off the very first meet and she said she felt we would have "nothing but fun together"! Sure enough we did! Though way too far and few between as that DAMN Cancer took a big bite out of that ever present 'sieze the day' spirit she rocked so well! You are one of a kind Wanda and I will cherish every memory (and even those of others) as you touched so many with your joy of life! Your Sister-in-Law for life! Ann

Wanda was such a wonderful girl and it was a great joy to me to be her "Auntie Bev." My heart goes out to Darryn and all the family at this saddest of times. Rest in Peace sweet Wanda.

Wanda ..... I see a recurring theme in all the memories. Yes, her smile, that wonderful, light-up smile! No matter what she was doing she always made the most of it. My favourite memory of her is of many years ago when we used to work together for the same firm. Wanda being Wanda, wanted to go dancing on a Thursday night. So dancing and drinking we went. Wanda was having so much fun that around 9 pm, she called our boss and told her, word for word: "Hi, I won't be in tomorrow, taking the day off, but I'll MAKE SURE Andrea is there" LOL! She was truly one of a kind and I will always miss her. I love you my beautiful friend.

Went to school with Wanda and sat next to her in home room. Can't recall ever seeing her angry. Not a lot anyway. Lol
Thanks for the bubble gum, Wanda! You're gone way to soon but memories of you will last forever.
Condolences to Wanda's husband, her family and friends and all those who loved her.

Wanda I’m still struggling to believe that you’ve left us.
You were so full of fun and a great neighbor.
I will never forget the time we lived next door to each other the fun we had. You gave support when I was questioning what the hell I was doing and we’d go to the local bar and make everything a little better🤣
What you’ve left behind is what you’d been searching for. You were lucky you found it😘
Hope you’re traveling safe and until we meet again big hugs xxx
