She is survived by her son, Dennis Magyer, his wife, Mary and their two daughters, Michelle and Melissa of Steubenville; daughter, Nancy Magyer and Mark Gutowitz of Charlotte, N.C.; siblings, Elizabeth (late Mike) Olexia of Astor, FL, John (Joanne) Brodzinski of Alliance, Ohio, Virginia (Robert) Miller of Beloit, Ohio, and Joe (Martha) Brodzinski of Alliance, Ohio.

Wanda was a faithful member of St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Church and Our Lady Guild in Mingo Junction, Ohio. During the many years she and Dan wintered in Florida, they were active members of Holy Dormition Byzantine Catholic Church in Ormond Beach. An immaculate housekeeper, she loved to cook, sew, craft, garden and shop. She relished the simple life, doting on family, friends and her faith. Wanda was a dedicated, loving and caring wife, mother, and baba, relishing time with her two granddaughters Michelle, a freshman at West Virginia University and Melissa, a freshman at Steubenville High School. Her smile, giggle and sweet disposition became very distinguishing traits, which will be forever remembered and so sadly missed. Wings truly befit her.

Thanks to all of you who touched her life in any way and especially to each of the caring staff, residents, friends and clergy of Carriage House Assisted Living. Her life was so enriched by your daily love and support.

Blessings and sincere gratitude to the clergy and parishioners at her church who faithfully prayed, visited, sent cards and brought gifts throughout the years.

Funeral Liturgy with Mass will follow at 12:45 p.m. at St. John the Baptist Byzantine Church (207 Standard Ave., Mingo Junction, Ohio 43938) with Rev. Fr. James Atkins officiating.
