Dear Cousin Gene, Mike, and familiesSo sorry to hear of Aunt Wanda's going to be with the LORD. I know she is very happy now. June and I tried to locate her when we went through Branson a couple of years ago. She was the last of the Gates siblings and in-laws. We loved her, your Dad, and you all very much. God Bless.

Mrs Gates was always one of my favorite teachers, I had 2 years of French from 1977-1979 at WMHS. I Loved being a member of the French Club.. she was always smiling and enthusiastic. Thank you Mrs Gates for good memories I had in School, Madame Gates

Ms. Gates was my French teacher between 1976-1978. Her classes were such a joy that after 40 years of High School and College, she is still my favorite teacher. God bless and au revoir Madam Gates.

What a wonderful blessing Ms. Gates was as a friend and as my teacher at W.M.H.S. She so loved the Lord Jesus Christ and was no ashamed to speak of it. I so remember her joy of living, loving students, studying her Bible...love for Israel and its people. I so loved her. The Lord bless all of you and keep you. What a beautiful, beautiful person!!!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I have very fond memories of my French class with Mrs. Gates in 10th grade. She was passionate and kept the class interesting. I’ll never forget how I was able to write a 500 word essay in French, because of her. My heart goes out to her children and family. May God comfort you during this difficult time.

Merci beaucoup, Cher madame. Je me souviendrai toujours de votre grâce et de votre gentillesse envers moi pendant les moments difficiles de ma vie. Je ne serais pas qui ou où je suis aujourd'hui sans que tu verses ta bonté dans mon esprit. S'il vous plaît pardonnez mon franglais.

How I loved my Spanish classes with Mrs, Gates! She was so sweet and so funny. My condolences to the family.
Ruth Miller left a message on August 21, 2019:
Mrs. Gates was an enthusiastic, skilled teacher; and I enjoyed so much the two years that I was in her Spanish classes. Her vibrant personality and warm heart made her a favorite of so many students. When a former student (1966 and 1967) remembers someone as fondly as I do Mrs. Gates, you know that she was a joy to be with. Prayers for her family.

Dear Gene, Mike, and Family, We send our sympathy to you upon the death of your Mother, Wanda. I always admired her for her skills as a teacher, valued her friendship as a fellow teacher, and admired her love for and faithfulness to her Lord. She was a faithful witness for Jesus everywhere she went. The Adairs enjoyed having she and Jack as neighbors and friends. I bet they are having a happy reunion in Heaven. Mrs. Adair died April 28 at age 96. Mr. Adair really liked you, Mike. Your mother left a wonderful Christian legacy for you all and her grandchildren. You are in our thoughts and prayers, Lee and Camille Adair

Mrs Gates was a very sweet teacher, always had a smile on her face. She did not 'talk down' to her students. Always treated them with respect.
