EFFINGHAM – Wanda Jean Reed, 89, of Effingham, passed away Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017, at her home in Effingham. 

Wanda was born March 2, 1928, in Herrin, the daughter of Ida and Fred Lampley. She attended schools in West Frankfort. Wanda married John Gibbons; together, they had three children, Diana, Sandra, and David. 

On Oct. 27, 1973, Wanda married Evan Reed Sr., and they resided in Rock Falls for 40 years. In November 2014, they moved to Effingham, to Evan’s daughter’s home, due to her declining health. Before moving to Effingham, Wanda was a member of the New Life Church in Sterling. 

Wanda is survived by her husband, Evan W. Reed Sr.; daughter, Sandra (Greg) Garcia; son, David Gibbons; stepchildren, Evan Reed Jr., Ron Reed, and Sally Perles; 15 grandchildren; 14 great-grandchildren; and son-in-law, Don Fisk. 

Wanda was preceded in death by her parents; spouse, John Gibbons; daughter, Diana Fisk; brothers, Wayne, Wallace, and Fred Lampley; and sisters, Betty Lewis and Ida Mae Wilson.

There are no services.

Memorial donations may be made to Crisis Nursery in Effingham, as Wanda so loved the babies.
