Wanda A. Haverly went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, December 18, 2018. We praise God for her long life with us and for her 95 years of fortitude and faithfulness to the Lord.

Wanda was born on August 7, 1923 in Barnard, Kansas to James Allen Adams and Lizzie Clarissa Hickle, being the last of 15 siblings. She grew up and was educated in Canon City, CO, attended Colorado Springs Business College, and moved to South Glens Falls, NY in 1957 to live and be near her beloved sister, Doris.

While living in Victor, CO, among her many activities, she was a grade school teacher and Deputy City Clerk; in Cripple Creek she was co-owner/operator of The Horseshoe Café and the Big Chief Soda Bottling Company. After relocating to New York, she worked at the Glens Falls Insurance Company and the Glens Falls National Bank and became involved in endless activities. She pursued her passion of teaching, focusing first on ceramics then on the fine art of china painting. She was founder of the Adirondack Ceramic Association, Founder of the Adirondack Region Porcelain Artists, and a member of the World and International Organization of China Painters. She was a 60-year member of the Glens Falls First Baptist Church, a member of the Glen Star Chapter 95 Order of Eastern Star as Chaplain and Historian, a member of the Victorian Social Society of Saratoga Springs, Queen Mother of the Ladies of the Lake Hat Society, and a former member of the Rebecca’s.

Wanda is predeceased by her husbands: Howard Hutchison (her high school sweetheart who served in the WWII Army Air Corp); Albert Washer; Raymond Haverly; step-daughter Deborah Washer Capezzuti, step-son Ronald Haverly as well as her siblings, Alma, Ethel, Lester, Mable, Zelda, John, Floyd, Loy, Mary, Hazel, twins Hancel and Harold, Arthur, and Doris.

Left to cherish her memory includes her two daughters, Karen Curtis (Edward) and Carol Brown (Colin), step-children, Katherine Bartley, Margaret Sevrie and Valley Rogers, 12 grandchildren, and numerous great- and great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and cousins.

At Wanda’s request there will be no calling hours.

A Funeral Service will be conducted at 10am on Monday, December 24, 2018, at M.B. Kilmer Funeral Home, 136 Main Street, South Glens Falls, NY, with the Rev. Stephanie Schneider, officiating, pastor of First Baptist Church of Glens Falls.

Burial will follow the Funeral Service at Glens Falls Cemetery, 38 Ogden Street, Glens Falls, NY 12801.

Aunt Wanda was a beautiful woman, inside and out. I loved her dearly and will miss her. She was my favorite Aunt. I loved visiting with her and seeing her beautiful art work. Her eyes were such a beautiful blue. She touched many lives with her talent and spark of life. I love you Aunt Wanda.

Wanda was both a teacher of art and a teacher of life. Her classes were both instructional, fun and full of vignettes from a life well lived. She was a remarkable woman with many talents and a heart of gold. She will be missed.
With sympathy to her family and friends,
Linda H
