Wanda was born in Florien, Louisiana on Tuesday, February 8, 1938, to parents, Arthur and Myrtle Rhodes. Wanda became a lifelong resident of Vinton, Louisiana after moving from Florien, Louisiana. She was full of life and enjoyed every moment of it. Wanda could often be found tending to her flower gardens, as well as, cooking. She was a wonderful cook, whom thoroughly enjoyed doing so for family and friends. Spending quality time with her children and grandchildren was at the very top of her list when it came to her favorite things to do in life. She was the very best and most loving mother a child could be blessed with. Wanda was a very hard worker inside as well as outside of the home and spent many years doing just that, working for Kroger, before retiring. When she was younger, she loved to travel and see things and places that she never had never seen before.
