Wanda was a flight attendant on United Flight 93. She worked for United Airlines for 30 years, had a lifelong passion for flying and dreamed of seeing the world.

Wanda's mother, Aserene Smith, called her daughter the night before the plane crashed in Pennsylvania to find out what time to expect her at the family's home in Oakland, California. "She had just cut the light and she was in bed," Smith said. "I said, 'OK, I'll see you tomorrow. I love you.'"

She is survived by her two children, her mother, father, brother and twin sister.
