Wanda was a caring, loving person that always was happy to see you. She always made a point to be in my neices life was such a wonderful great aunt. We will miss her.
I knew Wanda and Herbert since 1985 when I first came to US. Wanda was wonderful friend and helped me and my family so much with accounting and teaching us the American way of life. She was always smiling and positive about life. She will be missed but I am sure she is in a better place. She will remain in our memories as an angel and a person who was so kind, helping, cheerful and passionate. God bless her sole.
