Wanda Mae Brown of Kendrick died Tuesday August 2, 2016 at her home in Kendrick. She was 57.
Wanda was born May 22, 1959 in Garberville, CA to David and Donna Deeds Hamilton. When she was a young girl the family relocated to Kendrick and she attended local schools. Wanda met Daniel Brown at a Sadie Hawkins dance at the Kendrick high school and the couple was married on October 9, 1976. For most of her working years, Wanda was a stay at home mom, raising her children and all her grandchildren.
Wanda loved completing puzzles and seemed to always be working on a new one. She enjoyed the outdoors, whether it was camping, fishing, mushroom hunting in the spring, tending her garden, watching the humming birds or just going for a drive through the country, she always felt at peace outside. When she was inside, she could often be found cheering on her grandchildren at sporting events.
Wanda was preceded in death by her father David Eugene Hamilton, Sisters; Linda Ann Tipler and Paula Jean Arnett, brother Earl Wayne Hamilton, and grandson Dominic Daniel Brown, and brother in law Peter Leras. She is survived by her husband of 39 years, Daniel Brown at their Kendrick Home, Sons Daniel Jr. and Samuel Llyod, step –daughter Shondell Marie Murillo, Sisters Teresa Leras, Pam (Brad) Dammerman, Brenda (Mark) Allen, 10 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
