Wanda was a beautiful inspiration to our family. Her faith and endurance will be remembered. She spoke of visiting with old friends when we would visit while her Bible was in her lap. She remained positive and happy during her declining health and leaned on God for strength. One time she told us that while she’s praying, she pretended to be sitting at the Kingdom Hall looking around and would pray for each person she could remember. We can only hope to make our faith as real as hers! Many thoughts and prayers to the family during this difficult time. We will look forward to seeing her young and healthy in God’s “New Earth where death will be no more” (Revelation 21:1-4).

Wanda was a wonderful lady. She was a joy to spend a little time with even when she could hardly get around let alone breath. We went to encourage her....but she was the one who encouraged us.

From the first time we met we loved Wanda. Wanda was a woman of strong faith and love for her God, Jehovah. She was always reminding me,”We have to have faith without any doubt.” That is the faith she had always. She told me many times the story of how as a young widow with a baby she began her study of the Bible. In that long ago study she learned of the hope for the dead, and her faith in that hope was intact when she fell asleep in death. I am sure -if we cam maintain our faith without doubt- we will see our dear Wanda again. Wanda loved her children fiercely-she loved her friends dearly, but she loved Jehovah her God above all else.

So sad to hear about the loss of my dear friend Wanda. She was a kind hearted, thoughtful and selfless person. I haven’t seen her in 9 years but I never forgot about Wanda and neither did my children. I look forward to the day when she will wake up from her sleep.

We send our condolences for the loss of your mother. We loved her too and thought she was a very special lady. It was always a joy to go see her and visit with her. She was always so sweet and kind, she always tried to be cheerful even though she had such serious health challenges. Our world won't be the same knowing that we can't take her flowers or candy, nor see her bright eyes and smile- Love, Jeff, Dolores & Guthrie West
