Wanda Wollum

Wanda Wollum 1833 ~ 2017

Born at home on a farm in Wisconsin on February 12, 1933, to Cliff and Rose Wollum, Wanda passed away in California on June 10, 2017. Wanda had two brothers, Paul and Leland.  The small Norwegian family moved to Minnesota and Ohio before settling in Seattle, where her father worked for Northwest Orient and her mother was an Avon lady. Wanda excelled in school graduating from Highline High School in 1951.  Wanda married “Steb” Stebbins in 1955 and they had four children together.  

After their divorce, Wanda worked as a bookkeeper until she earned a degree from Seattle University and became a CPA.  Wanda moved to Alaska and then to California, where she later retired.  Wanda loved to travel, cook, dance, and especially loved cultivating her garden. 

Wanda was preceded in death by her parents and brothers and is survived by her children: Steve (Kim) Stebbins, Cliff (Diana) Stebbins, Sheri Viggiano, Brian Stebbins, and her nine grandchildren.  There will be a small gathering in July to remember Wanda.
