    Amanda, Ryan (Cori and daughter Hali) and Sandee Wilson.

  • Brad, Elaine, Brooke & family you are in our thoughts & prayers. May God give you the strength to get through the days ahead.

  • Aunt Wanda’s voice always had a pleasant & wonderfulness! Always sounding soooo youthful! She was one of a kind. She carried on the Legacy of Laughter the Beddow -Wilson family still “carry-on” with! So thoughtful, caring & loving. She regaled us of the fun and fabulous family gatherings! She was sooo proud & greatly loved her families!

    And how much fun she got feeding the quarry of ducks off her porch! And laughing heartily about a “really smart squirrel,” she said.
    “That squirrel stole an ear of corn from the neighbor’s garden & ran across to Brad’s picnic bench to eat it!”

    Aunt Wanda’s great sense of humor created a prank on her friends as they drove from Ohio to Florida, I think.

    They were shocked to be pulled over by the police!!! Ask Brad Wilson for the details. Really funny event! Aunt Wanda loved the gals’ reaction!

    Blessings, love & comfort to the Wilson-Simon families. May You Feel God’s Comfort Embracing You.
    And God Bless Her Soul…Aunt Wanda was such a special lady. : )

  • Thank you For your kind words and beautiful flowers. It was good to see you both.
    Love Brad, Elaine & family.
