Wanda was united in marriage to Roger W. Piersall. They raised their family in Clark Mills and shared many happy years together until his passing in 2019. Wanda was a stenographer at Utica State Hospital and retired from the Mohawk Psychiatric Center as a supervisor. Wanda was a strong, determined, quick witted woman, who always put her family first.

She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law Steven and Sharon Piersall; grandchildren, Ashley and Dillon Simons, Stephanie Crandall, and Steven Piersall; great grandchildren Jax Braven and Hunter Phoenix Simons, Landon and Lilliana Crandall; her dear lifelong friend Maureen Keller; many caring neighbors and friends, nieces and nephews who always had a special place in her heart and a large extended family. Wanda was predeceased by her son Michael Piersall, husband Roger and sister Lorraine Montasano. The family would like to extend a thank you to all of the medical personnel, including nurses, doctors, dieticians, EMT’s and private caregivers who provided her with the utmost respect, kindness, and with the deepest compassion.
