She was a member of and past President of the Westfield Nurses Association, working tirelessly on various fund raisers as well as the Noble Hospital Ball Committee.  She talked often about her high school summers spent with her sister in Buzzard’s Bay.  She enjoyed traveling especially her trips to Ireland and Italy.  She was happiest spending time with her family, and cherished the time spent with her good friends.  She always said “I am a very lucky woman.” Wanda was predeceased by her husband Patrick P. Brennan in 1991 and is survived by two loving daughters, Martha E. Murphy and son-in-law Jim of Westfield and Lyn L. Blake and her husband Nigel of Ludlow.  Five cherished grandchildren, Kaitlin V.
