Worked with Wanda at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Plant for several years. She was "one of a kind." Always smiling and looking for some mischief. Had the good fortune, due to her diligence, to continue our friendship with her and George after retirement. She will definitely be missed and well remembered.

I worked with Wanda for over 10 years at CCNPP. She was an absolute delight and I loved the twinkle in her eyes. So sorry for her family's loss.

I was blessed to know Wanda for just about 10 years, But she was such an amazing person and I loved her. She and George were like family to me. She was always doing things for others - sometimes for occasions; sometimes just because she wanted to. She made the world a better place for everyone, and I am so glad I was able to be a part of her life. Even as it became hard for her to get around, she still continued to do as much as possible. All those who knew her will feel a great loss, but I'm so grateful for the time. Love and prayers are with all the family. Nan Shrigley

We met Wanda when she and George made several trips to Texas to visit her granddaughter, Jackie and husband Jason, and great grandson Drake Deelaney. We knew right away that Wanda was a special person. We enjoyed those times together and looked forward to her visits. She was one of a kind, and we will miss her.

Wanda was truly a treat to everyone she came in contact with each day. I had the pleasure of working with Wanda at CCNPP. We worked together raising money for many different charities as well. Oh What A Lady. I feel blessed that I had the pleasure to spend those years with her. Rest in Peace Ms. Wanda. Blessings to the family at this time of loss. She was a True Treasure.

Wanda was one-of-a-kind. God threw the key away when he made Wanda. She was a West (by God) Virginia girl who grew up surrounded by love from family (especially Aunt Eva) & friends, spreading those young life teachings far and wide all of the years she was on this earth. Wanda you left a fingerprint on our HEARTS.
THANK YOU FOR BEING A FOREVER FRIEND Chuck Zandarski & Norma Jean Zandarski(West Virginia girl)
