Memories Timeline


  1. Wanda and the late Alma Conner were fixtures at the Hot Shot Cafe in Biltmore for many years. It was always a neat experience to eat there because you never knew what to expect, especially out of Alma. Wanda was always right on the money on the orders and made sure everything was just right. Those were simpler and happier times. Wanda will be greatly missed.

  2. I remember Wanda working with me for years .We worked at the Biltmore Dairy Bar for years together. She always made me smile .

  3. Brenda I am so sorry to hear of Wanda’s passing. She loved all of her family dearly. May God give you peace during this sad time.
