Wanda worked for the Illinois Department of Human Services in both Coles and Clark Counties for 30 plus years. She enjoyed making memories and sharing good times. She loved her home and working out in the yard. Wanda was a member of the Greenup VFW Auxiliary and the Cumberland County Sportsman’s Club.

Wanda always told Ryan “Do better”, even when he did his best. Guess she leaves us with that message. Do Better.
