Born June 27, 1964 went to be with the Lord July 8, 2020. She was a resident of Newport News and Smithfield, VA.
Wanda had a wild and beautiful spirit. She loved riding her Harley Davidson motorcycle with family and friends, going to Harley events and seeing this great country. Spending time with her family and friends was her most favorite thing to do. Her heart was her son Ian and his wife Justine, with the apple of her eye being her granddaughter Veronica, and her daughter Melissa and Arlow Triplett and their daughter Michelle and sons Ryan and Liam. Her best friend Mitch Canda was her partner in many adventures. Norman was her buddy who always fixed her pecan pie for Christmas and made her smile. Her furbaby Parker was always by her side and up for anything.
Life’s toll on her body cut her adventures short, but no matter where Wanda traveled or worked in her life’s journey, she made many friends everywhere. While she took life and work very seriously, she also found fun and humor in everything she did.
Wanda worked at the Dominion Power and Surry Nuclear Power Station for 15 years where she made many more friends and a lot became family members.
She is pre-deceased by her parents, Oscar B. Brim and Opal J. Brim, brother-in-law Kevin P. Ayer and nephew, Jeffrey C. Ayer.
