Before retirement, Wanda was an employee at the Power-Shop where she was a supervisor on the road crew. Wanda played guitar and harmonica and enjoyed singing, dancing, and shopping. She liked watching the television show The Dukes of Hazzard but she hated Boss Hogg; she also did not like the character of Dorothy on The Golden Girls. Wanda was a multi-medal winner at the Special Olympics in music, bowling, and track and field. She was like a sister to everyone as Wanda never met a stranger. She was not afraid to extend her hand for a firm handshake and to introduce herself.
Wanda was preceded in death by her parents; siblings: Charlie Boyer, Mary Brake and Candy Mash. She is survived by her brothers: Jesse Boyer and wife Carolyn of Comanche, Gwin Boyer and wife Vickie of Azle, Texas; sisters: Geraldine Peeples of Duncan, Melba Amerson and husband Thurmon of Comanche, and Hattie Brown and husband Robert of Edmond. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews whom she loved with all her heart.
Memorials may be made to the Special Olympics.
