Wanda J. Stup, 69, of Summerville, SC, formerly of Thurmont, MD, passed away Thursday, April 14, 2022, after a brave and determined battle with cancer.
Born September 12, 1952, to parents Mary Ellen Kline and the late Richard L. Kline of Woodsboro, Md., Wanda graduated from Walkersville High School Class in 1970.
Loved as a partner, Mom, Grammy, sister, and daughter, Wanda was an avid gardener, finding joy in the beautiful flowers around her, as well as scouring antique shops and flea markets for those diamond in the rough finds. She had a knack for decorating and could make any home beautiful. Anyone who knew Wanda was touched by her loving heart, compassionate spirit, undying support, and wise advice and she will be greatly missed by both her family and the vast community of friends she touched during her life.
After supporting her husband’s dairy farming operation and being a stay-at-home mom until her daughter went to school, Wanda was employed for nearly 20 years as an administrative assistant at Frederick Underwriters. After her retirement, she founded Fancy Chance Farm and grew it into a prize-winning Angus cattle breeding program. A long-time supporter of Frederick Country 4-H livestock programs, Wanda is remembered fondly by generations of young cattle enthusiasts for her support, guidance, and loving spirit.
Wanda is survived by her mother, Mary Ellen Kline of Woodsboro, MD; partner Steven Rutter of Summerville, SC; daughter Kimberly Ocasek and her husband Adam of Summerville, SC; grandchildren Annalise Ocasek and J. Daniel Ocasek; and siblings R. Wayne Kline and wife Jeanne of Walkersville, MD; Beverly Hoffman and husband Paul of Walkersville, MD; Carroll Ray Kline of Keymar, MD; and Peggy Mathews and husband Michael of Keymar, MD; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
The family will receive guests Wednesday, April 20, 2022 6-8pm at Stauffer Funeral Home, 40 Fulton Ave., Walkersville, MD. Funeral services will be held Thursday, April 21 at 1:30pm, followed by interment at Rocky Hill Cemetery.
Condolences can be sent to the family at 170 Highwoods Plantation Ave., Summerville, SC 29485.
