She was often accompanied by her beloved dog, Mattie. Wanda also hosted a quilting group for many years in her home. Several of the quilts were donated to charities for auction.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Martin and Marie Anderson, Joy, Illinois, and her daughter, Lachelle, Chicago, Illinois. Wanda is survived by her husband, Jerry Mitchell; her brother, Evan and Peggy Anderson, Raleigh, North Carolina; and her sister, Diane and Freddie Fisher, Quincy, Florida.
