Wanda and her sister Irene were among the sweetest ladies I have ever known. I remember calling them with prayer requests when we were all members of St Jude's parish prayer line. They were such a blessing to our parish family.
In the past eight years I've also gotten to know Wanda even better while visiting her, first at St Mary's Home and later at Brookside Homes on Top Rd. Wanda is the first person I visited after Father Michael Ferrick asked me to begin this ministry. What a joy that visit was!
I was privileged to be able to attend Wanda's 100th birthday party in June and was so pleased that our pastor Father John Detisch stopped by with a special blessing for her.
I will miss you, Wanda and will always remember you.
