She was born Dec. 10, 1933, in Nelson, Nebraska. She graduated from Nelson High School in 1952 and afterward attended Stormont-Vail Nursing School in Topeka.

She was united in marriage to John Fox on June 29, 1957 in Beloit as after meeting him when her car broke down because of engine problems.

Two years after they were married, they moved to Norton, where she was a registered nurse at Norton County Hospital for 35 years, a job she loved, especially when she became a labor and delivery nurse.

Upon retirement, she moved to Lehigh to be closer to family and for milder winters.

Wanda especially enjoyed traveling to visit family members. While belonging to the Kansas Campers and Hikers Association, she traveled extensively across the country and was involved in many activities.

She was an avid bowler and gardener and spent many years as a Girl Scout leader. Later in life, she enjoyed crocheting and spending time with her children and grandchildren.
