Wanda L. Lucas, 82, of Wilmington died at her home Friday morning, October 9, 2020 following the battle of Alzheimer’s. She was born September 6, 1938 in Greenfield, Ohio to the late Frank C. and Florence Spargur Wilkin. She married Joseph A. Lucas on July 10, 1959 and they made their home in Wilmington, Ohio. She was a steadfast caregiver, taking care of her mother, father and her husband until their passing.
Wanda is survived by her daughter, Jowanda Lucas of Wilmington, and three grandchildren Katie, Fiona and Lucas (Luke) Mulvey. She was especially fond of her dog Charlie. She was preceded in death by an infant daughter, Ambie Lynn Lucas and one infant granddaughter, Mary Elizabeth Mulvey. She graduated from Edward Lee McClain High School in Greenfield.

She was a longstanding real estate agent in Wilmington and more recently worked at Lowes. Wanda was also an advisor for the Delta Omega Theta sorority at Wilmington College.
Wanda’s love was as fierce as her spirit, exemplified by the way she prioritized her friend’s and family's well-being. The lives of those touched by her unwavering kindness and friendship will be forever changed.
