I cannot recall if I left a memory here or not. I will risk repeating myself....

Have MANY wonderful meals at Aunt Wilma's farm, stretching back 25 or more years ago. Nice chats in the living room; great breakfasts, lunches and dinners at her kitchen table. Not enough of those memories....should've made more trips over the last ten years....for that I am sorry.

God gives us all special talents, skills and a constitution with which we use glorify Him. The Christian is called to Love God, Love Others and Reach Out--things that came naturally to Aunt Wilma. Her heart for others, her selflessness and her ability to make everyone feel at home and as the most special guest ever is who she was.

She touched MANY lives with these attributes in these ways. She will be missed by many here on this earth.

Sorry I could not be there for you when you needed me the most. I'm going to miss those 35- 40 bowls of soup for my birthday each year. Also will miss the times talking about the fun experiences we had shopping for my new house many years ago. Your bother, John

Irv, Shar, Courtney, & Shayden

Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of need. She was an amazing individual, and already an angel here on earth. She certainly played a role in shaping all of you into the outstanding people you are today. May you find comfort in knowing the smiles she brought to our faces anytime we crossed paths.

One of the finest ladies anyone could ever hope to meet. She was the spirit of a loving family and a small town community. She was always willing to help those in need. God Bless her memory and God Bless her family.

So many memories since 1985... I am so very blessed to have known Aunt Wilma and been part of the family. She always had nothing but kind words to say and was so welcoming when we would come visit. I am thankful to have stayed in touch with her on the phone when we moved across the country and am very happy that we got to spend time together last summer. A true role model in every way. Sending love and prayers to the family during this difficult time. I love you Aunt Wilma, may you rest in heavenly peace.

Wilma was loved by so many. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother. She love with all she had. She gave of herself even when she should have been taking care of herself. She treated all like they were family. She sure could cook.
I will never forget how wonderful our rehearsal dinner and wedding reception meals were. She missed our wedding because she was at the hall making sure everything was going to be ok because an oven quit working. She was the best. Love her so much. Will miss her. Already do.
