Wanda and I met at Bible Study Fellowship in Fort Wayne. We remained friends and both enjoyed monthly lunches with the “Moses Group” over the years. She was a lovely person with a great sense of humor and a warm personality. I will miss her.

Wanda and I volunteered at Fort Wayne Airport greeting incoming passengers for several years. We just hit it off. She was funny, irreverent and a joy to know. Wish I could have spent more time with her.

Wanda and I were neighbors my first year at the Townehouse. She was a lovely, sweet friend to have.I used to tease her that I was bringing my cat to visit her bird. Never allowed! I will miss her very much.
