She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren Ashley Webb, Austin Webb and Kevin Poulin. Wanda was a devoted mother cooking meals and packing lunches for her family daily. With Bob being in the USAF they moved 10 times to 9 different states. Some years she was left to care for the children alone for months at a time due to her husband's overseas assignments. As the children grew older Wanda worked at Underwriter's Laboratory in Santa Clara. She liked to go on cruises, golf, play cards and games with family and friends. Wanda's life was dedicated to her family, friends, community and church.
