Wanda was born on Oct. 24, 1926, in rural Ingraham, the daughter of Perry and Susie (Galloway) Bickers. She married Delbert Green on Jan. 20, 1949, in Wakefield, and he survives. Wanda was the Newton and Jasper County area news reporter on various area radio stations for nearly 40 years. This was a job which she truly loved.
