She was an active member of First Baptist Church of Mabank where she taught Sunday School, served on the Benevolence Committee, took part in the women's ministry and numerous Bible studies. She also volunteered at the local food pantry. Wanda was an amazing mother, Mimi, sister, aunt and friend. She will be missed tremendously by those that knew and loved her.
