Wanda J. Pursley
Wanda was born in Callaway, Nebraska to Perry and Loretta Morford. She moved to Oregon with her family in 1943 and attended Canby High School. She married Myron Pursley on November 12, 1949. The family lived in a house they built on S. Lone Elder Road for 58 years. Wanda was an accomplished knitter, seamstress and upholsterer. She made special quilts for each of her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed all craft projects and excelled at everything she turned her hand to. Wanda was famous for her vegetable and flower gardens. She had a lovely sense of humor and will be greatly missed by her family.
