Wanda was known to be the jack of all trades. She dabbled in many different things including factory work at Siegel’s or cement work for the citizens of Hohenwald. Ms. Smith also enjoyed sewing and playing cards in her free time. On beautiful days she could be found outside working in her flower garden or loving on her favorite dog, Sassy. She also loved softball and played on a team for 1st State Bank of Perry County. Ms. Wanda had a heart of gold and would often look after many children in Hohenwald. There is no telling how many children’s lives she has touched during her time here. She lived each moment to the fullest and her love for her family was undeniable. She will be missed by so many.
