Service for Slain French Valley Woman is Sunday

The life of Wanda McGlover, 68, will be celebrated in a service Sunday in Riverside.

A celebration of life is planned Sunday for a Winchester woman who was found brutally attacked Sept. 21 during her daily morning walk near her French Valley home.

The service for Wanda McGlover, 68, will take place at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14 at Mt. Rubidoux Seventh-day Adventist Church, 5320 Victoria Ave. in Riverside.

"Come and join us as we honor her life, rejoice in her love for God and her family, and embrace her commitment to the church community," her family said in an emailed message.

"Sing unto the Lord with us as we give praise for His precious gift, and marvel at her accomplishments."

McGlover was likely best known for religious garments she distributed through her company, Wanda's Wondrous Works. Those who may have received a Wanda’s Wondrous Works garment were asked asking to wear it for the celebration.

"Cherish our memories with us as we delight in Wanda's Wondrous Works;
the woman, sister, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, niece, mentor and friend," the family said.

The family arranged for a large enough venue to accommodate members of the public who may also wish to attend.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Wanda McGlover Scholarship Fund, 37235 High Vista Drive, Murrieta, CA, 92563.

Additionally, as the Riverside County Sheriff's Department Central Homicide Unit continues to investigate her death, the family has set up a website to help with assistance in finding her killer. Donations can be made on the site at Justiceforwandamcglover.com.

So when they find her killer , I hope they hang the murdered, and not waste our tax dollars in that so-called fair trial BS. Where the killer is fed for up to 20 years in prison before execution day. I would be happy to supply the Horse and the rope to hang this low life piece of DNA.

It's a typical reaction of people when they feel there's a cold blooded sociopath lurking their community.

Not excusing some people's anger, but it's frightening to see a face like this in this type of community murdered in cold blood.
