Wanda Agee Albrecht, 69, of New Canton, died April 29, 2019 at her home. She was born April 13, 1950, in Buckingham County, a daughter of the late Bunny and Agnes Agee.
Wanda was a kind, loving person who was always ready with a smile, hug and warm welcome, whether she saw you on her mail route, at church or in a local store.
