She learned to crochet after she retired, and each of her grandchildren received an afghan for high school graduation. Wanda was a faithful member of the United Methodist Church for 86 years and an Extension Club member for more than 50 years. Wanda eventually moved to Pioneer homes in Neligh then to the Williows Assisted Living. In 2015 she moved to a nursing home in Broken Bow.
