My memories of dear Wanda...she was a kind-hearted person with a gentle spirit. Her genuine care for others was admirable. She opened her home to others for fellowship and Bible study. She had a beautiful smile. I will always remember her fondly. I pray she is at eternal rest with our Savior. God be with the family she has left behind. Until Heaven, my friend!

Marge, Randy and families, I was so deeply sorry to hear of Wanda's passing. Wanda held a special place in may heart and always will. My biggest regret is not spending more time with her after she moved back to Nebraska. We tried, but we both had busy lives and it didn't work out very often. We were both looking forward to the time when we could quilt together--she was to be my teacher! She will always be remembered and I pray I can set her example of staying positive through the tough time. Prayers to all.

Wanda babysat for our 3 boys when they were young; we lived west of Clay Center about a quarter of a mile - she was always smiling and did an excellent job taking care of our children. I visited with her on the phone about a month ago I think and she told me how difficult her life had been at certain times; I prayed her cancer would be gone but I guess God decided differently - special prayers for you Marge and Randy!
