Wanda was born in Horton Kansas, on July 20, 1958 to Christine & Richard Cruz.
Wanda was a loving mother of seven children and a wonderful grandmother to ten grandchildren. On top of that, she managed a rewarding twenty-five year career with Wal-Mart. In 2019, she was able to transfer with the company, in order to relocate near family that had been stationed in New York State, in Olean, N.Y., after having been a long time resident in Bossier City.
She loved watching her music videos with headphones on. She was a sports fan that also liked going OUT to eat, especially: Mexican Food. She had to adjust, in New York when it came to Mexican Food, but found her spot.
Wanda enjoyed many things life had to offer, but her favorite of all pastimes though, was that of spending time with her beloved family. She loved spending time with us! She was especially excited recently, when she became a Great-Grandmother.
Wanda was preceded in death by: mother, Christine Waqabushkuk Cruz; father, Richard L. Cruz; brothers, Gerald Cruz, Robert Cruz, Paul Cruz, and Felix Cruz; and one sister, Kathy Kelly.
She is survived by: children, Chris Cruz, Charity Cruz, Joanie Phillips, Elliott Cruz, Emily (& Matt) Bosworth, John Devors, Samuel Devors; loving sister, Donna (& Frank) Landry. Also left to cherish Grammy’s memory are: grandchildren, Wayne Cadenhead, Brandon Cruz, Leanna Cruz, Bailey (& Andy) Fuentes, Autumn Cruz, Zach Phillips, Lily Bosworth, Avery Cruz, Lincoln Bosworth, and Lucy Bosworth; and those precious little great-grandchildren, Carter Fuentes and Avanna Scott.
Oh, how we all will greatly miss her!
