Wanda was 82 years old. Wanda was born in Nicut, WV on May 08, 1932 and grew up in Gassaway, WV.

She was the fourth child of six, and the first daughter, of William Earl and Ocie Beatrice (nee Hacker) Hardway.

Wanda graduated from Gassaway High School in 1950 and continued her education in business at West Virginia Business School in 1951. She was employed by the Bank of Gassaway from 1951 to 1955.

She married and moved to Ohio where she was employed by Central National Bank (FirstMerit Bank) from 1955 to her retirement in 1988.

From this Wanda began very successful fund raising looking for a cure for CF and her career allowed her voice to be heard by many. In 1963, Wanda was blessed with her second beautiful daughter, Sheri Lue (nee Rogers) Hudson. Sheri also came into this world full of life like Wanda from her first breath and was Wanda’s constant companion caring for Wanda during these final years of her battle with cancer.

Wanda had many hobbies which included golfing, antique hunting, dancing, quilting, crafting, fishing, cooking, and was an avid sports fan of the Cleveland Indians and Browns, and golfers Tiger Woods and Jimmy Walker. She delighted everyone she met with her beautiful smile and excitement over any new adventures. Upon meeting Wanda, you soon found yourself dancing in the middle of a parking lot or searching garage sales for that perfect antique to add to your collection. She loved all the pets Sheri brought home to her, even when she was saying no, her love for her pets was soon known and they worked their way into her heart and up on her bed laying by her side.

Wanda was preceded in death by her loving parents, William Earl and Ocie Beatrice (nee Hacker) Hardway; her daughter, Sheila Jane Rogers; her brothers O. Darrell Hardway, William Eugene Hardway, and Charles Lee Hardway.

Her daughter Sheri would like to thank all those who cared for Wanda over the years. Most of all, Dr. Azmat Hussain and the loving hospice team and volunteers at the Hospice of the Western Reserve in Westlake, OH, and countless others.

The family asks that donations be made in memory of Wanda to the Hospice of the Western Reserve in Lakewood, OH.
