I first met Wana Jean in the spring of 1953. In my experience, she was witty, had a quick mind and a sparkling personality. She was always a delight to be around. I know that she will be missed by her family and those with whom she was close. She's back with John, now, for eternity with Jesus Christ.

David, I am so sorry to see this about your sweet Mother. She was the sweetest lady. I have been retired from the bank for several years now but she would always come by and "visit" with me. I really enjoyed those visits. She was always so proud and talked about you often.
