Wanda worked with her husband at Dana Corp for more than 19 years.  They became members of the Point Place United Church of Christ in the 1960’s and they were avid golfers.  Wanda proudly boasts 6 holes in one over the years.  She was also a member of the Eastern Star for over 45 years.  Wanda faithfully and lovingly cared for her husband Ralph and her sister Clementine until they passed on from this life.  We are consoled as good and faithful servant, Wanda has entered the joy of the Master.  Matt 25:21
