Wanda loved to garden, read, and spend time with her wonderful group of friends. She enjoyed going to her grandson Clark’s baseball games and George and Wanda took many nice RV trips with both grandchildren, Clark and Kortney.

Anyone who knew Wanda knew that she always saw the best in people and loved to include everyone.

Wanda is also survived by her two grandchildren, Clark Streby of Selah and Kortney Blank of Yakima, and younger sister Darlene of Lakewood, WA.
