Wanda White

Born: 12/4/1947, Hardin, Montana
Death: 6/8/2015, Grand Junction, Colorado
Service: 6/20/2015, 12 am, Grace Lutheran Church

Wanda Kay White, 67, left us to be with her beloved husband, Jode. Wanda passed away suddenly and unexpectedly, only a few weeks after the passing of her husband. They spent 37 years married and will now spend eternity together.

Wanda was born December 4, 1947 to Richard and Viola Willett on a ranch outside of Hardin, Montana. She spent her early years on the ranch and in Montana. She met Jode, the love of her life, in Moab and married him in 1978.

Those who knew Wanda can tell you that she never had an unkind word for anyone. She loved her family very much, and she was never happier than when they were gathered under one roof. Wanda loved the opportunity to cook for her family and never grew tired of inventing new recipes. Wanda’s extended family included Ruford, her bichon frise.

Wanda took great pride in her yard and its large, beautiful garden featuring local plants, fruit trees, and vegetables. She also enjoyed arts and crafts, and many of the things in her home and yard were made by her hand. Wanda could often be spotted working her crossword puzzle.

Wanda was preceded in death by her mother, father, and her older sister Darlene Larsen. She is survived by her brothers Jack Willett and Richard Willett. Wanda is also survived by her son Lance White, step-son Mitch White, her grandchildren Maddox and Oliver (Lance and Paige), and Breanna, Brynlee, Brooklyn (Mitch and Robyn).

A viewing will be held on Friday, June 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Spanish Valley Mortuary. Services will be held at Grace Lutheran Church on Saturday, June 20 at 10 a.m. Interment will follow at the Grand Valley Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Bichon Frise Rescue at bichonfrise.rescueme.org.

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
