Wanda was a senior at Rochester High School when she and her sister, Andrea, were killed in a car accident. Wanda was a member of the High School Conservation Club.
Wanda will always be missed and never forgotten. A tree was planted at Rochester High School in Wanda and Andrea's memory.
The poem "Footprints In The Sand" was on her memoriam page in the 1983-1984 yearbook.
Footprints in the Sand
One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
other times there was one only.
This bothered me because I noticed that during the low periods of my life,
when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat,
I could see only one set of footprints,
so I said to the Lord,
"You promised me Lord,
that if I followed you,
you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life
there has only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?"
The Lord replied,
"The years when you have seen only one set of footprints,
my child, is when I carried you."
