Wanda was born May 1, 1925 to Nevil and Rubye

World War II, a bookkeeper, and a housewife. She
was a devoted member of First Baptist Church Fulton
and the Bethany Sunday school class. She was an avid 
Kentucky Wildcats fan and faithfully watched their 
basketball games. She made her first trip to Rupp 
Arena at 94 years young and enjoyed every minute of it. 
She was a long-time bowler and bowled on a womens
league for over 50 years. She loved playing cards, especially
Hand and Foot, and working crossword puzzles and Sudokus. 
She was always ready to go! If the car was leaving the house, 
she was going, even if she didn't know where it was going. 
Her granddaughter assigned the theme of "Eat the Cake" to her
life because that is what she did, literally and figuratively. 
She loved her family well, enjoyed family get-togethers, 
especially when sweets were involved, lived life to the fullest,
and was the true example of a lady.
