Wanda Joyce (Turner) Rogers, of Danbury, CT, transitioned peacefully at her home on Sunday March 20, 2022 with her family by her side. She was 79 years old.

Wanda Rogers was a woman of great character who loved the Lord, and found comfort in Sunday services and the relationships she formed with her Church family. Cooking for her family was a passion of hers, watching football and basketball were her favorite pastimes; reading was her first love and talking politics with neighbors and friends stimulated her thirst to give and receive information about the world around her.

She was predeceased by - her father Lonnie Herbert Turner and mother Rosena (Gant) Turner and sister Bernadine Lavonne Fitchette.
