Fanny, Mandy and Pete,
I was saddened to hear of your loss. When I think of Wanda style and grace come to mind. She was extremely captiviating and a joy to be around. She lit up a room with her unique spark and love for life.
Love you all, Kathy Willingham
Fanny, Mandy, and Pete,
We send our sympathy to you all. Memories of Wanda make me smile. The Crow family has always felt like a second family to us Ballew girls. We are saddened by your loss. May God provide you comfort and surround you with love.
I only worked with Zita for a short time, but she left an indelible imprint on my outlook on life. I had moved to Austin with my family, right out of law school, and we had purchased a home. I was explaining to Zita that we had a 2400 sq ft home but no furniture, and we were trying to decide if we were going to furnish the house one room at a time or more idiosyncratically. She told me not to purchase any furniture, or as little as I could get away with, and instead spend the money on art. The art would increase in beauty and value over time while the furniture would wear out. That short conversation changed the way I thought about the world. Zita was right. In my limited experience, she usually was. She was, herself, a piece of art.
Wonderful woman. Very proud to be her nephew. Will miss her unique laugh and her attitude toward life. She was an angel. Love you aunt Wanda
You always greeted me with a smile and made me my day so much better
what a beautiful photo . . . what a wonderful and generous spirit that will long live on in all those that she touched. my thoughts and sympathies are with you and yours.

Farewell Aunt Wanda, you were one magical women. You were always a great role model, and always stood your own ground. I think you unknowingly taught us young women how to look at life in a new way. May your wisdom stay with us forever, and one day we will see you again. With all my Love- Kim
Zita- I will miss you so much.You are now on your "Trip to Bountiful" You were always so nice & such a joy to talk to. I will remember you & your family in my prayers.
Aunt Wanda was so unique and so special. I remember being extremely fascinated by conversations she would have with her siblings. She was loud and colorful and so exciting to be around. I will miss her and all the beautiful things she had to say. A true woman of wisdom.
I always thought you were one of the coolest women I knew. So smart, so funny, and never afraid to speak your mind. I will miss getting your emails encouraging me to learn more and to make a difference. Never complacent, you were always learning, doing, growing, sharing and I will always remember you that way. I'll miss you. I love you.
Thank you for sharing your love and grace. You taught me so much about living. Now in death you continue to teach by sharing your favorite poem. My heart forever holds you dear.
My sincere condolences to the family of this incomparable woman. She was a treasure and will be missed.
Dearest Zita - the world is less bright and light today without you. You had such a talent for bringing humor and light-heartedness to any situation. It is no wonder that you and Jerry connected in such a wonderful way. I can see you and him now -- sitting around the afterlife swapping funny stories about life and Texas and laughing. I will miss you just as I miss him. Please give him a hug for me, dear heart.
Zita is one of the most incredible women I have ever known. She is remembered with admiration, respect and love. Rest in peace, Sweet Lady...rest in peace. Much love, Ferrell.
My dear Zita. You touched so many people's lives by your love, laughter and great stories. You are truly one of the most wonderful women I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Thanks for all the great memories. Heaven is now graced with another special angel.
Our hearts go out to you. She was a special lady, so full of humor and light.
all our love,
Patty Griffin and Robert P
