Wanda Jane Medlin

have a memory or condolence to add?


June 30, 2020

My family and I each have wonderful memories of Wanda. She was not just a friend but my sister- my kids knew her as "Aunt Wanda".

Although she will be sorely missed, I know that she is now reunited with all of her loved ones that have gone before her and her life continues.

See ya later, Wanda!
Love you- Alma.

Wanda was the best Mother-In-Law that I could have ever asked for. She was very sweet, funny, caring, and a friend. She shared her recipes for cornbread dressing and pralines and her son, Dale with me, and welcomed me into her family. My family loved her and appreciated her quick witt and Southern charm. She will be greatly missed.
