I will forever remember Wanda and her nightly bowl of ice cream. She would tell us that was the secret to living a long life. I'll never forget her laugh or her smile! What an incredible elect lady. She will be greatly missed in the Memorial Park Ward.

Brad, Marge, and Bob. I am sorry for your loss. You may not remember me but I was one of your dad's scouts. Your mom was such a trooper as she helped your dad prepare for the adventures to Tony's Grove Lake each summer. I have spent may a time in your Swan Street home. You have had such wonderful parents to raise you. There has always been such a tender spot in my heart for your family.

Brad, Marge and Bob Just wanted to tell you what a good friend Wanda was and Lowell also. We had several trips together, especially the church history ones, they were so fun. We spent many New Years Eves together with other friends. We good rides together and had several times with them at the cabin. Wanda was my counselor in Relief Society and I know she was the best ever. Wanda, Lois and I had many good times together then, making things, visiting all the ladies in the ward. Countless funeral meals and homemaking meetings. Wanda was the one that made them special with her talents. I could go on for a long time. As the years have gone by we have had so many conversations on the phone, especially after Lowell died and then Russ. She has told me about all of you and your families and I feel like I really know all of you. She was and is truly my sister and friend. I love her and look forward to seeing her again. My sympathy to all of you and your families. Love JoAnn
