Wanda Joyce LeClair, 65, died Oct. 13, 2002. She was born May 10, 1937 in Texas. She was raised in Oklahoma and moved to Arizona in 1979.
Mrs. LeClair was a longtime employee of Smitty's in Mesa. She wanted it known that she never worked for a boss she did not like. She loved the great outdoors of Arizona; especially fishing at Roosevelt Lake. Instead of dying, she said, "Tell them I've gone fishing."
Survivors include her longtime friend, Don Toot of Payson; son, John E. (Barbara) Welch; three sisters, Betty, Jimmie Lea and Cora; granddaughters, Heather, Jerika and Sabrina; step-granddaughter, Tara; step-grandson, Justine; two great-granddaughters, Kalee and Raven, all of Oklahoma.
Cremation at Bunkers Desert View Chapel in Mesa. Interment in El Reno, Okla.
