Wanda Lee (Ledbetter) Odom

Odom, Wanda

Oct 26, 1930 – June 6, 2014

Wanda Odom died peacefully at home on June 6 after a long period of decline. Family members and her wonderful caregiver were in attendance. She is survived by her children Dan (Karen) and Mike McMullen (Kay), Kathryn Odom Calfee (Dave), Doug Odom, and step-children Bill and Tom Odom, and Linda Bronson (Steve). Wanda has 11 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Wanda Lee Ledbetter was born the youngest of four siblings in Venice, grew up in Bakersfield, and left home to attend San Jose State College. After marrying young, having four children, moving to Sacramento and divorcing in short order, Wanda met and married Marvin Odom, who brought three more siblings into the family. The Odoms moved to Rocklin in 1964 where they lived for many years to raise the family.
During that time Wanda continued her education at California State University, Sacramento, culminating in a master’s degree in 1966. After the kids left home, Marv and Wanda moved to Alta Sierra to enjoy foothill living, fly their Cessna and travel. She worked for 35 years at Folsom Cordova School District and rose to be director of Special Education Services before retirement. When Marv passed in 2002, Wanda relocated to Davis to be near family. She enjoyed going to the pool for exercise, socializing at the senior center, reading and taking the grandchildren out to lunch.
In memory of Wanda, the family will host an informal memorial gathering at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 21, at the home of Kat and Dave Calfee, 27275 Willowbank Road, Davis.
