Out of high school she worked for several years at Rockwell Collins until being laid off. Wanda then worked several years at Mercy Hospital in the cafeteria, laundry, and housekeeping departments. Wanda’s favorite color was purple! She enjoyed bowling and was in many leagues. Wanda was an avid blood donor and was a member of the Central City United Methodist Church and the Red Hat Society. Some of Wanda’s favorites were peanut butter, tater-tot casserole, orange slices and circus peanut candies. She loved to paint, play bingo, and enjoyed camping and many road trips to Texas with her mom. Wanda will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
