Blessed, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, passed away January 24, 2003, at the age of 90.

She was born in Glenwood, UT Sept 10, 1912 to Celia Christiana Sorensen and Andrew Oldroyd. Married to Clayton W. Fike June 5, 1942 in Ft. Lewis, WA. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.

Wanda is survived by her two children, Mary Kathryn (Mitch) Wiley, Andrew C. Fike; three grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren. Preceded in death by husband, parents, sister, Florine, and brother, Roland.

Hers was a life of work, activity and service. She became a legal secretary when her children were older. At home she loved working in the garden, canning and cooking. In later years Wanda was a member of a performing dance group until age 80. She played the piano weekly at various rest homes.

Wanda had charity for all and preached her sermons by her actions. Thrift and self-denial were virtues she practiced constantly so her husband and children could live more abundantly. She will be missed by all who knew her.
