Illinois, USA
Death: Sep. 12, 1984
Goshen
Elkhart County
Indiana, USA

I'M HONORED TO SPONSOR THIS MEMORIAL FOR MY DEAR GREAT GRANDMA WHOM I KNEW AND LOVED VERY MUCH!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Wanda Irene Toliver was born to Ira S. Toliver and Jenny Cook. Her family moved to Kansas from Illinois around 1917. Her mother died when she was a toddler. Wanda had a hard childhood with her stepmother, Ella J. Flexser, (and grandmother) who raised her along with her own two children. Wanda married Jacob S. Chupp on September 12, 1912 in Pryor, Oklahoma. They moved to Yoder, Kansas and then on to East Goshen in Indiana where she lived most of her life. She had 5 children, and two of them were identical twin sons:

Clarence Winfield
Virginia Fosten (Elliott Knoll Leatherman Miller)
Irene Wanda
Lloyd
Leland
Gladys Marie Chupp Cripe (b. 1926)

She also had 8 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great grandchild at the time of her death which her obituary never stated. Sadly, one of Wanda's daughters (Irene) preceded her in death at age 15 when she was killed by a car. Wanda was a homemaker and member of St. Mark's United Methodist Church for many years. Wanda was a wonderful great grandmother and I always felt loved by her!
