October 5, 1949 — April 20, 2023

Wanda M. Glessner, nee Drummond, 73, of Waterloo, IL, died April 20, 2023, in St. Louis, MO. She was born October 5, 1949, in Petersburg, IL.

    She is survived by her husband Michael L.

    Wanda was a member of SS Peter and Paul Church in Waterloo, IL.  She was a former president of the Mary and Martha Society.  Wanda volunteered over the years at many SS Peter and Paul and Gibault events while her children and grandchildren were attending the schools.  Her greatest joy was her grandchildren.  Wanda loved spending time cooking and baking with them. Her grandchildren will remember her for baking special cakes at every birthday and making decorated cookies for every occasion. Wanda was a source of comfort and support for her grandchildren and she always found ways to make them feel special. She was very kind and generous to everyone she met.
