Wauneta grew up in the small town of Salisbury, MO.  She married and moved to the Kansas City area where she was a homemaker, raised her children and remained for the rest of her life.  Wauneta began working full time outside the home at a later age.  She celebrated her 25 year anniversary at  Wal*Mart and continued to work there until limited by her disease.  We would like to thank her fellow associates for their friendship and loyalty during her illness.  You were an important part of her life that made her job more enjoyable and she appreciated you.

Wauneta enjoyed country music and travelling to Branson, MO to see the shows, relax and shop.  She was a Neil Diamond fan and also enjoyed camping, painting ceramics, watching the Royals, and pampering her Schnauzer, Laurie Jo.  Wauneta always made the best of her life under any circumstance.   She enjoyed spending time with her children.
