Breck, and family I had the honor of knowing you guys, when you moved to Kalona.Beingneighbors, I found out how lovely and kind Wanda was. After many years have passed, I still hear her laugh, and see her smile. She was a very loving mom, friend and spouse, Im sure. Wanda found something good, even in bad days. :)She always had something happy to say. Even tho, I haven't seen her for several years, I am so sad to hear of her passing. She is without pain, and is watching over you with a loving smile. Please know that you are all in my prayers. Love Lisa Shalla MacDonald

Breck, Tara & Tyler and Denise Wiles: My deepest sympathy to you and the rest of Wanda's family. I worked with Wanda at Jack's many years ago and we had a lot of fun. She truly was one of a kind. We had a lot of fun working together and she was always fun loving and cheerful. We lost touch and I haven't seen her for at least ten years but the years I did work with her were memorable. I am glad I had the pleasure of calling her my friend for a few years. Peace Be With You All in this time of sorrow and loss.
