Sympathy to the family. Wanda was a sweet person. She was my babysitter back in the 50's. Her sister Loraine, too. They were mother's helpers for my family , Albert & Lela Michels. We lived NE of Cisne, not far from the Slade home. Such great memories of Wanda from then. Still have her high school picture. To the family, let the memories help you thru this difficult time.

One of the wittiest women I have ever taken care of! I will miss her dearly. She was a very special woman.
