A Tribute To My Wife:
Wanda was the most spirited woman I ever met. She has the heart of a lion, strong and fearless. She was born in Union, Missouri, the Show Me state. She showed me over the span of four decades, unconditional love, compassion and character! We went through life side by side, not in front or behind me! We had a bonding of the heart, soul and mind. We could feel each other's inner thoughts through the good times and the bad times. She gave me two beautiful children. I've been a very blessed and lucky man to have shared our journey through life together! Jim (Motor)
Wanda worked at Jeep, Bayshore Supper Club, Shadow's Country Pub and Mel Bermans. Surviving Wanda is her family, husband, Jim Gioffre; daughter, Stacy Guerrero; son, James Gioffre, Jr.; sisters, Lois (Lee) Thater, Donna (Dave) Giudici; brothers-in-law, Mike Gioffre and David (Ilana) Gioffre; many nephews and nieces, and Wanda's shadow, "Snickers", her Yorkie Poo.
Wanda was preceded in death by her son, Kevin.
