I met Wanda at Rutland Place two years ago and visited with her monthly during that time.She was so well spoken and interesting to know.She spoke so fondly of Judson church and her Judson Jewel friends. She was to celebrate 90 years in the coming weeks and oh what a birthday she is going to have! She will be missed by her many friends and family. My thoughts and prayers go out especially to her beloved brother that she did cross word puzzles with every morning and called each night. I know he will miss her very much.
