Wanda was born on Dec. 12, 1928, at Elizabethton, Tenn., and married her true love, Paul Cantrell, on Dec. 10, 1946. Although they lived in many parts of the country, Baker City was always home.

Wanda’s final move to Baker City was in 1967. She worked as a waitress at the Royal Cafe for many years. Later she married Jim Byars and they co-managed the Eltrym Theater until they retired.

Wanda enjoyed traveling and her favorite hobby was crocheting. Her beautiful work will be treasured by her family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her husbands; her mother, Myrtle Cole; and her sister, Donnie Gervais.
