Wanda June King



She worked for Oliver Corporation, Civil Services and was an Assistant Personnel Manager for Sears. She was a 70 year member of the American Legion Auxiliary Post #81 in Shelbyville and was a volunteer for the St. Mary’s Hospital Auxiliary in Decatur. Wanda was devoted to her family, friends and church.

Wanda married Larry L. King on June 2, 1957 and he survives. Also surviving are sisters: Marie Stewardson of Rosemount, MN and Eileen Jenkins and husband Bob of Grand Haven, MI; many nieces, nephews, cousins and countless friends.

Preceding her in death are her parents; father-in-law and mother-in-law Marvin and Neva (Rankin) King; brother Roy Schwenker Jr.; sisters: Jeanette Alban and Shirley Dolowy; brothers-in-law: Herb Dolowy, Don Stewardson and Bill Elben, and sister-in-law: Jo Ann King Foster.

Wanda will be greatly missed by her beloved family and friends. She will be remembered by her tender way of signing a thoughtful card or saying goodbye: “God loves you and so do I.”
