Wanda was such a wonderful person, I'll miss her.
I'm sorry for your loss. What a gem is gone. I worked the night shift at the nursing home for many years. Mrs Wanda was sure a favorite. From her singing to her spunk. I have so many found memories. From her sitting holding hands and listening to other residents to her sense of humor. One night another resident was sleeping in a chair and she came to me and said, "I see they are sick, have you even checked their vitals?" Nothing doing but to wake them and get vitals. Too funny. I went to my desk one night and found her with my empty package of crakers. I said that was my lunch. I was having tuna and crackers. She laughed and said, "guess you are having tuna." I could go on and on. So many stories. Just loved Mrs. Wanda. Thank you to her family for sharing her. Know she was cherished by many. Prayers to you all.
Sorry for your loss prayers for your families.Wanda was a wonderful and caring person and one of best nurses at Mercy.
