Wanda Jean Edwards

May 22, 1931 — December 12, 2022

Wanda J. Edwards, age 91, of Sheridan, passed away on Monday, December 12, 2022 at the Laurels of Fulton.

Shortly after graduating from the Sheridan Rural Agriculture High School in 1950, Wanda married the love of her life, Bruce, and they enjoyed almost 45 years together. Wanda was also an adventurous person who wasn't afraid to try new things. She was a licensed pilot and very artistic. Wanda loved making things, especially porcelain dolls and carousel horses. She liked to go bowling, dancing, and was always ready to try her luck at the casino. Wanda enjoyed going to yard sales in search of a good deal or treasure and she liked collecting Precious Moment figurines and Depression Glass. She will be deeply missed by everyone who knew and loved her.

Surviving Wanda is her daughter, Penny (Russ) Grinnell of Sheridan; son, Mark (Denise) Edwards of Sheridan; grandchildren, Shane (Hanna) Grinnell of Elsie, Derrick (Megan) Grinnell of Japan, and Christopher Edwards of Sheridan; great grandchildren, Jayden, McKenna, and Colton; along with many nieces and nephews.

Wanda was preceded in death by her parents, Albert & Hazel (Dolby) Byers; husband, Bruce Edwards; son, Tony Edwards at birth; and all of her brothers and sisters.

A private family memorial service is being planned for a later date.
