The voices of those that past before were too loud for Wanda to ignore. Wanda's spirit has won the fight over her earthly body as she took her last breath, now living an eternity in Heaven.

From Wanda's daughter Renee: Many times I had heard mom say that she was ready to see her mom and dad again. She was longing to be with them, and now she has joined them and I'm sure the reunion was glorious. I know that one day we all will meet on the other side and until then, I love and miss you and thank you for being my Mother.
