I'm 69 years old and I've known Wanda since I was 13. Still her neighbor. Mr and Mrs Payne used to take the neighborhood kids, including me to church. She was a very sweet lady and a great neighbor who loved her family dearly. She will be missed. May God Comfort all of you during this difficult time. Prayers. R.I.P. Wanda Brenda Hunt Hodgson

Memories of her may they fill our hearts. David Haling. SRC

I love you Aunt Wanda! Thank you for accepting me into your life as your family and being such a great aunt to Lincoln. We pray for you every night and remind him that you're safe in Heaven with Jesus. Thank you for bringing joy, kindness, and adorable cats into my life. I appreciate our conversations, our texts, and our friendship we built over the past few years. I love you and miss you so much already! Brittany Sigler

Our deepest condolences to the Payne family. We lived across the street from Wanda, Ann and Andy. The Payne family has left an indelible mark upon each of our hearts. The GREAT consolation for us all is that we will finally see the face of Jesus, and once again reunite with our loving parents, family and friends. God Bless each one of you as you go forward. Know that we Love you, and will keep your family close in our hearts and in our prayers. Sincerely, The Cagle family The Cagle family

I haven't had near enough time to know you, Wanda, but you were close to my heart. You truly loved your family deeply. The times you welcomed me into your home where I watched you and Andy go through old photos and reminisce about times gone by in Michigan and West Virginia were times I so enjoyed and will never forget, especially when Lincoln showed up! You also loved your cats and I don't think I'll ever look at another cute photo or video and not automatically want to post it on your page, as I've probably done way too often. Peace to you, sweet Wanda. I will miss you. Tomi Peterson
