It takes an extraordinary person to put others problems and ailments before your own. Wanda Sullivan, Mother, Wife, Daughter, did just that for anyone and everyone she could no matter what the issue was. She loved her husband Derek Sullivan with everything she had and her daughter Hayley was her heart and soul. She cared for everyone so much her mom Dorothy, her dad Otis and all of her brothers and sisters. She thought of Mary Sullivan, her mother-in-law, as her own mother she loved her very much and she loved her close friends like they were brothers or sisters. Mitzi was like her angel she cared for her very much. Whenever she was away from her dogs, Thunder and Claire she would always tell her husband and daughter to go home and give then big hugs and kisses. She always told stories about her cats, Spike or Spikette as she came to find out and her cat Tiger, who rode with her to work everyday. She enjoyed bowling and she loved to go fishing and would stay on the lake all day until she caught something. She loved making people smile and did it in anyway she could, even through corny jokes. She always told stories from her childhood about deep sea fishing and her travels with her parents. More than anything she loved talking about her daughter, she loved watching her grow up, and wouldn't miss a softball or baseball game for anything. She was taken too young, too soon, but she' the type of person who would give you a big hug and tell you everything is going to be okay and she would tell us to remember and cherish the memories and to celebrate them, she would say that she's home now with her dogs, kitties, Mary and Ben, and her son Justin, and she would tell us that she is watching over us and protecting us from everything. Rest in Peace. You are loved by so many people. For additional service information, please contact Basham Funeral Care at 873-8200. Basham Funeral Care
