Wava was a kind, lighthearted, fabulously fun aunt and a great sister to our mom with an unforgettable sense of humor. She lived life with a dedicated work ethic along with her countless inspirational talents. Wava and Don will now be together again. Thank you for so many wonderful unforgettable memories Aunt Wava. You are forever missed xoxox
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Wava (and Don) were my neighbors for nearly 25 years. She was such a lovely lady. I remember a number of Bancroft Dairy memories she'd tell me when we'd occasionally have lunch together. She'll be missed by many. Condolences to her family.

A great life indeed. A new St. Wava will be watching over all of her family. Made our wedding cake and was a great Aunt. Many fond memories. She introduced me to pizza when she worked at the Badger Drive Inn. So glad Wava and Don enjoyed their retirement in the beautiful home they built neat the Yahara River. Condolences to all of the Hanson children.
