Wanda was like a second Momma to me. I sure loved hearing her stories and how she laughed with her entire being. She loved with everything she had. I will miss her, we may not have talked often but when I needed a Momma talk she was there for me. Love and prayers

Wanda was a special lady. The picture chosen for this obituary catches the essence of Wanda. She was fun and feisty, with a sparkle always in her eye. If James Roberts of the Andrews County News was writing about Wanda, he would say "she was a good un".
She will be missed.

Wanda and are cousins on her father's side. Our parents for many years worked for the same companies and lived in the same neighborhood on San Antonio s east side. When I entered the 1st grade wanda was in the 6th grade and she was given the task of walking me to and from school. We attended the same in schools until our graduations. During my youth she was a presence. She was cheerful and kind always. Later in life when met it was always a delight to see her.

Wanda was my dear, sweet friend for 45 years. Although we didn't get to see each other very often, we kept in touch by phone catching up on our kids and grandkids. Many long telephone conversations. Wanda was the kindest person, always with a smile on her face and she loved to laugh. She loved her two boys most of all and doted on her grandkids. She will be sorely missed by me and so many others. She is with her mother and father now and at peace.

Wanda Dye:
My Son-in- laws' mother, my Daughters' mother-in-law, and grandmother to our grand children, Cooper, and Kourtney Dye. Wanda was a friend to so many, not only with her words; but also in her actions and in her deeds. Wanda was always there for others. Her loyalty to her family and friends was only surpassed by her love for her "boys." Being a mother to William and Chad was for sure, the highlight of her life. She was so proud of them and never missed the opportunity to show it!
I will miss our many conversations about life, kids, and of course, the grandkids! She was not only a family member to me; she was also my dear friend. God bless you Wanda Dye. You will be missed.
