Wanda L. Newland
February 07, 1943 ‒ August 01, 2016
Wanda L. Newland, age 73 of Delaware died at home Monday, August 1st, 2016 in the company of her husband whom she loved.
Born on February 7, 1943 in Columbus, she was the daughter of the late Rufus and Beatrice (Guckert) Green. A graduate of Mifflin High School in 1960, she had been a Delaware resident since 1973.
She married Donald Newland Jr. whom she met in high school in 1963, while he served in the US Air Force. Together they shared 53 wonderful years, raising their family, and enjoying their children and grandchildren. They were partners in life through thick and thin.
A dedicated homemaker, seamstress and upholsterer, she enjoyed eating out and finding garage sale treasures. Wanda was skilled with a needle and thread. She was also a member of the Delaware Church of Christ In Christian Union and assisted in the church nursery.
At times feisty, she was generous, dedicated to her family, and always loved unconditionally.
Wanda was a wonderful and loving wife, mother and grandmother. She took care of every family need, perhaps her husband described her best as “handier than a pocket in a shirt”. She did it all and well. Needless to say, her life was full, most especially when surrounded by her grandchildren and family.
She is survived by her beloved husband Donald, children: Mark Newland of Delaware, Shelley (Greg) Williams of Marysville, Stephanie (Brian) Parish of Prospect, 7 grandchildren: Journey, Gunnar, Victoria, Elizabeth, Abigail, Seth, Sydney, brothers Earl Stevens of North Lewisburg, Gene (Gale) Stevens of Chicago, IL, Milford (Donna) Green of Troy, MI, and sister-in-law Nancy Green of Marengo.
She was also preceded in death by her brother Glen Green.
