  4. Harrisonburg VAI am very sorry to hear of your loss. I, like my sister, have many memories from years ago when we spent time at the Baillie home. Wanda was always very kind to us and very welcoming. Her home was our home. Our world today needs more people like Wanda Baillie and homes such as hers.

  5. Danbury CTSo sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. Spent many times together when we were little. She watched us when Mom and Dad had to go out of town. Always felt at home and had fun with the Bailie family. Got to see her a lot when I was still living in Fargo and working at Moorhead Herbergers. She was always smiling and laughing and enjoyed visiting with her. She will be missed!!

    I know Wanda will be greatly missed by all of her family. She was truly a fun, loving person whom I have known for over 50 years. When my twins were small Wanda would come over in the evening and we would sit and fold dozens of diapers. Many other great memories of our times together. I hope they have a bingo parlor in heaven……
