Wanda (Panek) Jarvis, of Enfield, entered into eternal life on Friday, Oct. 5, 2012, at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center, Hartford. Wanda was the beloved wife of Lloyd A. Jarvis, with whom she would have celebrated 60 wonderful year of marriage on Thursday, Oct. 11, 2012.
The Guest Book is expired.
She was born on Dec. 20, 1931, in Enfield, the daughter of the late Leon and Teofilia (Toczek) Panek, and was a lifelong resident of Enfield. A devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, she dedicated her life to caring for her family and home. Wanda's Polish heritage instilled a passion for Polish music and dancing the polka. She also enjoyed reading, going to the beach, and trips to the casino, but her greatest treasure was spending time with her children, grandchildren and was looking forward to meeting her great-granddaughter in November.
Besides her beloved husband, Lloyd, she is also survived by her loving children, Diane Maxellon, and her husband, Douglas, of Enfield and Lloyd A. Jarvis, and his wife, Joanne, of East Windsor; her six beloved grandchildren, Michele Vogt and husband, Will, of Florida, Brian Maxellon, Nicole Maxellon, Ryan Jarvis, all of Enfield, Kristie Jarvis and Lloyd Jarvis of East Windsor; and a great-granddaughter, Samantha Vogt. Wanda was predeceased by two sons, Wayne Jarvis (1999) and Glenn Jarvis (2009).
