Wanda graduated from Braggadocio High School in Braggadocio, Missouri in 1958 and worked as an administrative secretary for the State of Illinois for many years until her retirement. Wanda was extremely intelligent, and her spunky personality was one of a kind. Wanda loved her family and especially adored her nine grandchildren. She was incredibly talented and had a passion for crafts, mainly cross-stitching and crocheting.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Haskell and Margaret, nee Parks, Ward; Donald Ward, Jesse Ward, Levi Ward, and Junior Ward, and sister Dema Ward.
Wanda is survived by her daughters, Sondra Nold Fletcher of Mount Prospect, IL, Monica Lybarger (Greg Eagan) of Fairview Heights, IL, Cynthia (Bob) Wolff of Tampa, FL, and Andrea (Eric) Walter of St. Louis, MO; grandchildren, Jordan Fletcher, Tori Fletcher, Michaela Fletcher, Madelyn Lybarger, Ella Metz, Cecilia Wolff, Greta Walter, Teddy Walter, and George Walter; sisters, Bonnie Vogel of Orlando, FL, Lori (Bobby) Gilstrap of Eureka, MO, and Pat (Nick) Pautler of Waterloo, IL; and a brother, Larry Ward of St. Louis, MO.
