Wanda was born on October 20, 1932 in Caplinger Mills, Missouri, to Len and Neva Alma (Bland) Hamilton. She was a graduate of El Dorado Springs High School. Wanda married Oma J. Keller on April 5, 1952 in El Dorado Springs, and shortly thereafter moved to the Kansas City area. She worked at City Hall as an administrative assistant in the KC City Manager’s Office and then stayed home for 18 years to raise her son, Paul. After Paul was grown, she went to work as an administrative assistant for Hallmark, retiring in 2014 after 30 years of service.
Wanda was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Oma J. Keller; her brother, Calvin Hamilton, and his wife, Geraldine. She is survived by her son, Paul H. Keller and his wife, Jennifer; her grandchildren, Madeline Keller and Adam Keller; two brothers, Wayne Hamilton and Loy Hamilton; and a sister, Vera Woody.
Wanda was a caregiver to everyone, and her greatest love was spending time with her grandchildren, who were her pride and joy! She will be dearly missed.
