Wanda was born February 9, 1932 to Wes and Tillie Lowe in Hutchinson, Kansas. The family moved more than they would’ve liked in order to make a living so Wanda lived in Oregon, Idaho & Kansas during her growing up years. When her folks moved to Alaska she followed and met and married her first husband Red James there. They had three children and lived in Anchorage, Seward, Glennallen, Tok, Juneau, Fairbanks & Chistochina during those 25 years. In 1980, she married Don Jordan and followed him to Nevada and Louisiana for his job. When Don retired they moved to Boise. Most of Wanda’s life was spent being a supportive wife and loving mother. However she worked for the Utility company in Fairbanks, Alaska and also the Anchorage Police Dept. When she lived in Elko, Nevada she went to school to become a Medical Transcriptionist. She was one of two of the top transcriptionists at a major hospital in Louisiana and also transcribed while living in Elko, Nevada.
Wanda had a quick wit and a kind heart for animals and the underdog.
