Returning home, Wanda began work in Weyburn at Leydon's Optometry office in 1957 and enjoyed fitting several generations of families with eyewear. She retired in 2000. Wanda was a leader in Boy Scouts for many years and a member of the Order of the Royal Purple. She was active at Grace United Church in Weyburn and enjoyed bowling, crocheting, and trying new recipes. As an avid reader, she was knowledgeable on most topics ad was always up for shopping or watching a good movie. Wanda was an amazing aunt, sending birthday cards with money long after the kids had graduated. Her small kindness will be greatly missed and we will be forever grateful for her easygoing nature and wonderful laugh.
The family thanks Home Care in Weyburn, staff at Tatagwa View Nursing Home in Weyburn and staff at the Fillmore Health Centre for their compassionate care of our sister and aunt in her final days.
