Obituary

Wanda Jo (Dunham) Inman, 82 of Lenexa, KS passed away June 6, at Delmar Gardens – Lenexa, KS of natural causes. Wanda, the youngest of four children, was born April 7, 1938 in Kansas City, KS to Cornelia J. (Saunders) and Bertie P. L. Dunham. She spent the majority of her youth in the Bonner Springs, KS area, graduating from Bonner Springs High School in 1956.
On June 17, 1956 Wanda married her sweetheart, Kenneth E. Inman, with whom she held hands until his death in 2012. Wanda cared lovingly for her husband as Parkinson’s impacted the end of his life.
Their marriage was blessed with two daughters, Tammy and Kim. Wanda loved being a wife, mother and homemaker, but also enjoyed working outside the home; first working in the kitchen at her daughters’ elementary school, and then in retail sales. Later in life she was so proud of her time cashiering at the Lenexa, Kansas K-Mart.
Her favorite hobby was teaching her children and the local neighbor and 4-H kids the joys of horsemanship. One of her great joys was owning her own horse and it’s foal.
While living in Kansas City, KS for most of their marriage, after retirement Wanda and Kenneth also enjoyed time in Spring Hill, KS, and then their Lenexa, KS apartment. Wanda always enjoyed spending time with friends and family and attending church. She attended both Stony Point Christian Church and Edwardsville, KS Christian Church over the years.
The last few years of her life, Wanda resided at Delmar Gardens. Her daughters will be forever grateful for the friendships and warmness shown by the staff and other residents of Delmar. In her final days, Wanda and her family were cared for with sensitivity and kindness by Katie and Cathy, of Kindred Hospice.
Wanda is survived by her daughters Tammy Bluhm (Michael) of Shawnee, KS and Kim Potter (James) of Olathe, KS. Four adult grandchildren will miss their Grandma – Jacob, Madison, Jordan and Mariah. One great-granddaughter, Elliot, will learn of Wanda through stories told by her mom and grandma.
In consideration of the corona virus, and in order to protect all of those who loved and were loved by Wanda, a private graveside service will be held Wednesday, June 10th. The family requests that memorials be made to the Edwardsville Christian Church, or charity of your choice.
To honor Wanda, on Wednesday morning, we ask that you step outside, soak up a moment of sunshine, lift a prayer, and hold the hand of someone you love. We are certain she is holding our Dad’s hand.

I will never forget Miss Wanda, her smile, her laugh, and the hard work she did for all the kids in the WYCo. 4-H horse project . All the horse shows, parades, and county fairs, you could count on her. If you and your horse where having a rough day she was there with a good word and pat on the back to keep you going. Our prayers are with you all. Bill and Candy Hollander

I’ll always remember my grandma’s laugh.

I’ll always remember how she thought it was fine to have ice cream just because. That goes for candy and cookies too.

I’ll always remember how she shouted my name when I was getting into trouble and how we always laughed about it later.

I’ll always remember my grandma.

A while ago, I got to spend a summer evening with my Grandma and Grandpa. We drove around country roads in my friend’s convertible Galaxy 500, they told stories, and we got ice cream. Every story would start being told by one of them, switch to the other, and continue back and forth until we found ourselves in the next. When I think of my Grandma, that’s where we are. It’s a simple memory, but nonetheless a favorite. A perfect night, a cool car, eating ice cream and sharing memories with people we love. When I think of my Grandma, that’s where she’ll be.

Not everyone’s grandma is a celebrity, but mine was. When we’d walk through the aisles of K-mart, every single person in a red vest knew her name.

Not everyone’s grandma was a professional chef, but mine was. She taught my brothers and me how to create what we confidently referred to as ‘the perfect sandwich’ – white bread, bologna, mayonnaise, American cheese, and 5, count them, 5 bread and butter pickles.

Not everyone’s grandma was a daredevil, but mine was. She invited me on a hot air balloon ride, and neither of us backed down.

Not everyone’s grandma was a fashion designer, but mine was. My Barbie’s closets were full of custom creations made during my summer stays at Grandma and Grandpa’s house.

Grandma was a lot of things to a lot of people and will be missed dearly, but her memory will live on.

I see her in Ellie’s wirey curls, a style passed down generations and never truly tamed.

I see her in me, when I turn on the tv and solve the Wheel of Fortune puzzle before any of the contestants.

I see everything good about her in my mama – spunk, grit, and a laugh that makes you want to laugh even more.

I love you, Grandma, and I know you’re in a better place.
