Wanda was born December 29, 1938 in Cherokee, the daughter of Thomas J. Evans and Doris Jenlink Evans. She passed away June 16, 2016 at St. Mary's Regional Medical Center in Enid.

Wanda was raised and lived in the Cherokee area all of her life. Wanda was a "straight A" student in high school, was Miss Cherokee in 1957, graduated with honors from Cherokee High School in 1957 and attended Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva.

On November 28, 1959 Wanda married the love of her life, Logan David (L.D.) Metcalf, and they would have three children. In Wanda's early years she was a telephone operator and a legal secretary at the Alfalfa County District Attorney's Office. Wanda left her employment and assisted L.D. on the family farm and became a homemaker. Wanda and L.D. enjoyed spending time together, going out with friends for dinner dates and yearly trips to Estes Park, Colorado. Wanda particularly enjoyed when her daughter, Rashelle and grandchildren, Kelsie and Seth, were able to make the yearly trip to Estes Park. Wanda departed this life ready to go home and be with her Savior and her beloved L.D.

Wanda was preceded in death by her husband, Logan David (L.D.) Metcalf on November 11, 1999; an infant daughter, Brenda Kalee Metcalf on August 6, 1960; her parents, Thomas J. Evans and Doris Jenlink Evans and her brother, Harry Charles Evans.
