I am Wilma's first cousin. We enjoyed playing together when we were young. We didn't see each other for many years but reconnected with her when we visited Pulaski a few years ago. Since then, we have communicated with each other and always exchanged Christmas cards.
Although I didn't have the pleasure of meeting her husband, children and other family members, you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Nell, and husband Jim, Taze

I have just learned of Wilma's death. I am so sorry for your loss. I am her first cousin. I have been wanting to know how she was doing but didn't know how to contact her. You and your family are in my prayers.

Sherry, it wasn't until I saw the pictures shared on here that I realized that I knew your Mom. I worked with her at WalMart! What a nice lady, caring individual, and helpful associate! Now I know where you get you loving nature from! My prayers are lifted for you and your family during this difficult time. I love you.
