Wanda McNeill, age 87, passed away in The Woodlands on October 7, 2014 after many years of decreased capacity.

Wanda was born and raised in Mingo County, West Virginia. After graduating from High School she moved to Charleston, WV. There she worked for the Charleston Gazette until she married Roy McNeill. She then focused on being a full time homemaker raising three daughters while being active in the community. Wanda lent her time, talents and in many cases held leadership positions in the YWCA, PTA, Women's Auxiliary of the ASME, and various groups at Christ Church Methodist. She will be remembered for her love of gardening and flower arranging.

Her children will remember her creativeness like her homemade Halloween costumes, and crafts she taught to her Brownie and Girl Scout troops. She will always be remembered for her love of cooking, canning and homemade hard candy.

When her husband, Roy, retired from Union Carbide they moved to New Braunfels, TX. There Wanda was an artist with the New Braunfels' Art League and held various leadership positions including president.

Wanda will be dearly missed by her family, friends and caretakers.
