Wanda Bradley


Wanda Trzaska Bradley, 84, of Bradenton, Florida (originally from Philadelphia PA) passed away peacefully on 02/11/2024 following a courageous battle with cancer. Due to her illness, her passing was not unexpected but her friends and family are profoundly saddened. Wanda was born on April 21, 1939.

During a challenging upbringing in Philadelphia, she met her future husband William (Bill) and started a family in her early 20s. In 1968 Wanda and Bill relocated to the Philadelphia suburb of Montgomeryville to ensure that their children would flourish under better circumstances than she herself had in the inner city.

Wanda treasured her family while continually educating herself, ultimately becoming a degreed registered nurse in her 40s. Wanda maintained lifelong friendships with important people from her childhood.

She passionately traced her family heritage back beyond her grandparents' immigration from Poland, conducting intensive research and interviews to construct the Trzaska family tree.

After raising 4 successful children she retired gracefully to the warm climate of western Florida with husband Bill, who passed away in 2018.

Wanda was preceded in death by her son, David Christopher and husband William F. Bradley. She is survived by her children William F. Bradley Jr., Susan M. Bailey, and Amy K. Hoath and her 9 grandchildren William F. Bradley III, Autumn E. Bailey, Chelsea Bailey, Forest T. Bailey, Arthur G Hoath V, Alisha M. Hoath, Ashton S. Hoath, David C. Bradley, and Natalie Bradley. Services will be held privately, per Wanda's request.
