I didn't know you well, but you were a very dear friend of a very dear friend. I pray for you and know that the two of you have found each other in the next life. I am grateful that we had the chance to meet. Lauren

After being welcomed into the family over 46 years ago thru marrying Wanda's brother Ed, I feel more like Wanda is my sister and not my sister-in-law. She was loved very much and will be missed very much. Ellen

I worked with Wanda for many years at Cengage Learning formerly known as American Book Company, Wadsworth, ITP, Thomson, etc. What a great woman and full of stories! My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
