Wanda Jo Rapp, 56, of Tuscaloosa, AL passed away Tuesday, July 30, 2019 in Smyrna, TN. She was born August 23, 1962 to Marvin “Buddy” Upchurch and Ruby Upchurch.

Wanda was a strong, compassionate and kind wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She gave everything of herself to everyone she knew.

She was a dedicated Bama fan. Her house was never quiet during football season. She was a Bingo admin on Facebook, where she impacted so many people just through her presence there. She was selfless and her family and friends were everything to her as she was to them.
