Wanda Faye Thomas – April 2015



Wanda Faye Thomas

Wanda Faye Koster was born June 29, 1933 in Arkansas, to Charles and Lucy Koster, the oldest of 6 children. She attended the local schools and the Junior College in Beebe, Arkansas, obtaining her teaching credential.  She married William (Bill) David Thomas December 7, 1957.  They had four children- Veronica (Ronna) Charlene, Evadine (Deni) Denise, David Louis, and Jeffrey Steven Thomas.

Wanda moved to Susanville in 1975, where she was active in her children’s activities, including Cub Scouts, Little League, Rainbow Girls and Music Boosters.  She worked and volunteered at Johnstonville School – primarily in the Kindergarten class, and especially enjoyed working with her reading group. She also provided day care for several families, becoming not just a day care provider, but part of their families.

Wanda was also active in the Order of the Eastern Star, serving as Worthy Matron and as Deputy Grand Matron.  Through her husband and son David, she was also active in the Masonic Order.

Wanda loved the outdoors, and gardened with a passion, particularly in her flower garden.  When remembering Wanda, think of flowers and sunshine.

Wanda is survived by her children Ronna (Joe), Deni (Ralph) Jauch, David Thomas, and Jeff (Kirby) Thomas, grandchildren Sarah Freeman, Alex and Allison Jauch, Kody, Kolby, and Jacob Thomas, sister Nellie Morris, brother Charles Koster, numerous nieces and nephews, and many, many friends.

Services are Saturday, May 9th, at the Masonic Hall in Susanville.



Why Pre-plan?

Thinking about your own funeral leaves most people feeling a little uneasy, but more adults are finding that pre-planning a funeral offers great emotional and even financial security for them and their families. With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
