Wanda Lee Weisgerber
August 21, 1951 – November 20, 2021
Wanda Lee (Kyle) Weisgerber left this Earth on November 20, 2021, to be with her Heavenly Father and all those loved ones who predeceased her.
Wanda was born on August 21, 1951, at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, to Henry Houston Kyle and Mary Jane (Hughes) Kyle. She is predeceased by her parents and survived by her husband of 45 years, Dennis Wayne Weisgerber of Porter, TX, her two daughters, Emily Ann (Weisgerber) Skyle-Golden of Reno, NV, and Jessica Lynn (Weisgerber) Culley of Humble, TX, and by her precious granddaughter, Coral Czarina Culley, also of Humble.
Only a few weeks after her birth, Wanda started her adventure as a military child with constant relocations including San Juan, Puerto Rico; Cape Canaveral, FL (twice); Mobile, AL; Lompoc, CA; and finally, El Paso, TX. While in grade school in El Paso, her father retired from his position with the Strategic Air Command, and Wanda and her parents relocated to Spokane, Washington, where her father had a business as a mechanic. After a few years, the family relocated to Ritzville, WA, where Wanda attended middle school, and then her dad purchased a gas station/garage in Lind, WA, where Wanda would spend her high school years. While in Lind, Wanda developed close friendships that endured until her untimely passing. The day after she graduated, her family relocated again, this time to Anchorage, AK.
Wanda attended Washington State University, and the University of Alaska, where she earned her degree in Psychology. While working on her master’s degree at U of A, she met Dennis who was working in the Alaskan oil industry, and they were married in February of 1977. Wanda’s pride and joy were her two daughters, both of whom were born in Alaska. With Dennis, Wanda’s nomadic lifestyle resumed with relocations to Denver, then to Ventura, CA, back to Denver, then to Spring (Houston), with Oklahoma City being the next stop. Finally, in 1998, she and her family came back to Kingwood (Houston) where they finally settled down. It was in Houston, that Wanda and Dennis received the most glorious gift imaginable, the birth of their sweet granddaughter, Coral.
Wanda has enjoyed several career moves that include State of Alaska Counselor, Bank Teller, owner of a bookkeeping business, relocation specialist for multiple national moving companies, retail sales associate, owner of a mortgage company and owner of a pet sitting business, from which she recently retired.
Wanda was an avid traveler, and she and Dennis explored the world together. They particularly enjoyed the cities of Europe and cruising, having cruised the Mediterranean twice and the Caribbean multiple times. Even during the week of her death, she and Dennis were planning their next trip. Wanda loved to cook, and everyone loved eating at her table, because she was unbelievably good at it. She enjoyed sewing, especially making custom dresses for Coral, who would brag to her friends about her designer seamstress grandma. Also, she was an avid, voracious reader, typically starting a new book every few days. Wanda loved all her pets over the years that included cats, dogs and even a rabbit, and she helped establish a “no-kill” rescue shelter for cats.
But most of all, Wanda will be remembered for the value she placed in her family and friends. She had a way about her that made everyone around her comfortable, and she was simply loved by almost everyone she met for her unending generosity and the truly Christian way she treated them. She had tremendous, charming wit, and a very sophisticated sense of humor. Wanda will be sorely missed, and undoubtedly, the world is now a better place thanks to the impact she’s had on it.
A celebration of Wanda’s life will be held on Saturday, January 8th at 11:00 AM at Kingwood Funeral Home, 22800 Highway 59 North in Kingwood, TX. A reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Wanda’s favorite charity, the one that she helped establish, Wags-to-Whiskers of Texas at https://www.wagstowhiskerstx.com/donate/.
