Wanda Bissonnette, 76 of Grand Ridge, Florida died Monday, October 16, 2023, at Chipola Health & Rehab.
She was born April 30, 1947 and spent most of her life in Greensboro, FL. She was a loving mother and Meme and called family by many friends. She touched the hearts of many people throughout her life. She loved the Florida State Seminoles, to shop and her favorite holiday was Easter. Her favorite part was decorating eggs with her grandchildren and making Easter baskets for loved ones. Wanda was a hard worker and retired from the Department of Environmental Protection.
