  2. My Aunt Wanda was special and adored by many, especially her brother James Doyne York, my father. Debbie & I offer our deepest condolences to my cousins and all of her family. She use to call me Jimmy Dennis and I didn’t let many call me that, except Grandma York of course.
    God Bless Aunt Wanda!
