A life well lived…That was our Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma, Great-Great Grandma and friend, Wanda Lee Ryan Monteleone, went peacefully to be with the Lord on August 5, 2021, at Rolling hills Care Center, Bridgeport, Ohio, the place she called home.
She was welcomed at the gates of Heaven by her mother Beryl Keenan Dean, her father George Keenan, her husband Clarence Ryan, her second husband Frank Monteleone, her loving son Monte Ryan, and her son in law Jim Kindberg.
Wanda was born July 1, 1926, and was a lifelong resident of Martins Ferry, Ohio. She worked at Angeles Florist for many years and the Salvation Army and the Belmont County Outreach Program. She was a lifelong member of the First Christian Church and a member of the Eagles Auxiliary #456.
