On June 6, 1964, she married the love of her life, Arthur Lee Ginn, whom she lovingly called Tootie, in Safford, Arizona.

Wanda was an amazing mother who instilled creativity and resourcefulness into her children with passion and grace. She was an amazing seamstress, cook, builder, inventor, and homemaker.
Creative to her core, Wanda began a successful quilting business in 1998. She became well known for her quality of work as well as the beautiful hearts she wove into each piece. She truly loved each quilt she put her hands on and treated them as individual pieces of art. Quilts from all over the United States, Mexico, and Canada found their way to her little shop without ever having to advertise. Her clients became genuine friends, and she loved each one of them.
Wanda was predeceased by her parents, Howard and Bessie Pennington; brothers, Marlin, Dale, and Autry; sister, Mary, and granddaughter, Sarah.
