February 26, 2020, and went to join her parents, Thelma Elliott and South Jones, her sisters Gracie Gerkin and Irene Schlenker, her nephew James Mann, her niece Debbie Kerns, and her husband Chester Bridwell.

Wanda is survived by her daughter, Beth Jernigan, her very special nephew Biff Elliott, her grandson Dylan Kahn and his wife Trinity, and many loving nieces and nephews.

Wanda was a life-long resident of Lawrence County and was known as a generous and kind person to many in her family, and her community. Her special passion was the White River Humane Society.
