A few months later, she married her high school sweetheart, Loraine “Mike” Dill, and they shared over 70 years together. Wilma was an active member of Sunset Hills Christian Church and enjoyed serving at the church, including the women’s ministry and the Sunday School program. She was a skilled seamstress, enjoyed reading, and loved spending time with and bragging about her grandchildren. She will be remembered for her independence and instilling that same independent spirit in her daughters and grandchildren.
