My deepest sympathy to family. Met Wanda when she volunteered for The Thursday club, a respite for Alzheimer’s. She was one of the first to volunteer and that was 14 years ago. We became friends through this club and she was very faithful and a great volunteer. My deepest sympathy to everyone.
May The Lord provide comfort and peace at this time.
Sincerely and prayers.

Wanda was a sweet and gentle lady. We met through First Lutheran Church and through volunteer work. Also square danced together and took several trips on the tour bus. I went with Wanda and Tim to several "Elvis" shows in and around Temple, always had so much fun with those two. She was my loving and dearest friend who I have missed since she moved to McKinney. Rest in Peace Wanda! My sympathy to her entire family.

I knew Wanda when she lived at Country Lane Apartments in Temple Texas. She was a wonderful lady and didn't show her age at all. I remember mornings when we had coffee together and her son Tim would join us. Yes, I'm sure she will be missed by many. RIP

Wanda was an amazing mother, wife and friend throughout her life with our family. Holidays were family oriented and always fun for a house full of family and friends. She supported her husband during his military service including his duties overseas with grace and strength.
