Mrs. Greer was an excellent teacher and an encourager of many. As a teenager, I was drawn to the experiences of a woman who had clearly been on a journey with God. As an educator, I owe her a debt of gratitude for an education that made future success possible. I will always remember her with fondness and respect.

I pray the Lord is near to your family in this time of grief, but also celebration of a life well-lived for the glory of God. I graduated from TCCS in 1982. Mrs. Greer was my senior English teacher. I have so many fond memories. She was truly a "Teacher of Excellence" as she always motivated her students to reach higher...to achieve more. She taught us well...I remember teaching my children how to write research papers based upon how she taught us! She was also one of the most Christ-like ladies I knew in my youth. She could seemingly relate any event or topic to the truths of Scripture. She truly made an impact on so many lives for the Kingdom God! I pray that you are comforted to know she is in the presence of the Savior she loved and served for so many years. God's Grace to you all! - Larry Meade

Our prayers and thoughts are with Wanda"s family. One of the greatest blessings we can receive is when one of our love ones goes thru the gates of Heaven and spends eternity with God. Wanda has made that journey. She was our special christian friend for many years. Harold & Beulah Larkey & Family
