Wanda was a loving mother and wife and is survived by her daughter, Joan Christensen and son-in-law Tim, and son David and daughter-in-law Juli. Wanda has 4 grand-children and 2 great-grandchildren. She was born in New York City where she grew up and went to nursing school. Wanda met Dave, the love of her life, at Joan's Beach on Long Island, and was married in 1953. After having their children in NY, they moved to Novato in 1963 and lived there the rest of their lives except for a brief time in Maryland.

She will be remembered fondly by all who knew her and will be missed greatly.
