Wanda was a fine woman who always had a smile and hug. My sympathy to the Covington and Bowers family. Jean Jernigan Jean Jernigan, December 25, 2016 I had the pleasure of working with "Ms. Wanda". She was a joy to have around, always dressed to the nines, and had a smile on her face. She was comforting to have in the office, like an adopted grandmother. She will be missed.
