Wanda was born on August 30, 1935 in the Concord Community, Hunt County, Texas to John Albert and Hazel Surratt Farmer.
As a child, Wanda grew up with her twin brothers on the family farm where she picked cotton and enjoyed the country way of life. As a teenager Wanda began her many occupations over the years to support her three girls as a single mother. From building fiberglass boats, working at Haggar Slacks, to managing the Booterie Shoe Store, running Winchell's Donuts, and the last 15 years running a Daycare Center in her home till retiring in the mid 90's.
Wanda was always the life of the party. She always had a house full of people, a home cooked meal with no measuring, and was always there to pull up a chair to hear out your problems or concerns. Wanda could always be depended upon to do whatever to help her family out to whom she loved very much. She was a Christian and strong believer in Faith. Through her many illnesses over the last couple of years she believed that is what kept her going.
