The two enjoyed 64 wonderful years of marriage that included the highlight of their lives, three amazing sons, Mike, Mark, and Matt. They had their own drapery and floor covering business for about twenty years, in Waco, where Wanda willingly and joyfully did whatever was needed of her. Their family expanded, gaining two wonderful daughter-in-laws, Lynn and Julie and again with the blessings of three adored grandchildren, Madeleine, Tanner, and Tyler. The family attended the Baptist church in Waco. Wanda and her husband resided in Waco, Texas for 34 years and moved to San Marcos, Texas in 1987 where they lived for over 30 years.

Wanda knitted the most beautiful sweaters, hats, and scarves. She loved working in the yard and was always looking for plants the deer would not eat. She had a passion for working on the family tree and taught herself how to navigate the ancestry and DNA websites. One Christmas, she did ancestry books for everyone in the family, including the family line of her daughter-in-laws and other family members - the coolest gift ever. She loved old movies, musicals, and was an avid reader. She loved cats and had many throughout the years. Wanda loved Hawaii and the Caribbean. She liked all music, but really loved classical music, especially if it was a performance of one of her grandchildren.

Her family will fondly remember Wanda as a loving and devoted wife and mother. She never missed any of her son's baseball games, bowling tournaments or anything else they were involved in while they were growing up. She loved her grandchildren and could not have been more proud of their accomplishments. She immensely enjoyed going to her granddaughter's baseball games, softball games, and band performances and her grandson's band performances and scouting events.
