Our beautiful, elegant Auntie was incredibly artistic. She painted china, knitted, cross-stitched, sewed and created lovely oil paintings. She had impeccable taste in clothes and her homes were always decorated with flair.

After her parents died, Aunt Wanda stepped into the role of matriarch. She became the glue that held our small extended family together. She loved playing hostess at holiday gatherings which was a blessing for the Mitchell girls who had lost their parents early in life.

Auntie also became an incredible family historian by researching in depth the Murray, Skidmore, Garrity and Burns lineage. She compiled her information, photos and remembrances into a book which she gave to each of us and will be cherished for generations to come.

Aunt Wanda lived her life to the fullest and I am so grateful to have experienced a small part of it. She was quite a lady.

"Auntie" has provided me a full life time of love, laughs and incredible memories. I treasure the stories of the trio of fun in teens and twenties, my mom Joan, Aunt Margaret and Aunt Wanda. The stories are priceless. She was an incredible story teller. I it was about World War II you were there. Stories about our Great Great Grandmother Garrity who I have aspired to be as strong as. The years marched by and her and Aunt Pat who is the youngest created a whole new set of memories. She did a beautiful job raising my sweet cousin Sandy that I swore when she was on earth I swore had angel wings.
Auntie was always dressed to the nines. As a young kid I remember waiting to see her outfit for Thanksgiving dinner. Her routine never changed over the years makeup, hair and dressed for the day before she was seen.
She was truly the matriarch of the family and I loved her so much.
