Wanda had a special gift of bringing people together. She loved spending time with friends: playing board games, hanging out sharing stories, laughing, giving advice, or you name it. She was always calling to check on family and friends. She cherished her dog, Baby Jack. When she set her mind to accomplish something, nothing would stand in her way.
