She was born November 5, 1927 in Pasadena to Edgar and Lucille Dowell. After graduating from Baylor University, Wanda met and married Jack Earl Capps with whom she recently celebrated their 64th anniversary. During those years, they lived in Jones Creek, Texas, Russellville, Arkansas, Angleton, Texas and finally had resided in Jacksonville, Texas since 1992.
Besides her husband, Jack, Wanda is survived by her son and wife, David and Teri Capps; three gandchildren, Melissa Capps, Michelle Cooke and husband Shane, and Michael Capps and wife Amanda as well as two great grandchildren, Liberty and Van Cooke. She was preceded in death by her parents. Wanda was a devoted wife and mother who loved to sing and play the piano as well as camping with her travel trailer club and square dancing with the Jacksonville Jacks and Jills. Most days would find her sitting out on the back porch of her home on Lake Jacksonville. Her great smile and quick wit will be greatly missed by family and friends. Friends are cordially invited to visit with the family from 2p.m. until service time at Autry Funeral Home.
