    My sweet Aunt Wilma,

    I will always remember the songs I learned in her Sunday School class, and spending time with her, Auntie Donna, and Auntie Olivia while my parents were at work. She had a wonderful sense of humor and loved her family very much. My thoughts and condolences to Brenda, Eric, Dave & Daryl.

  3. John and Kate Boyle says:

    Wilma took care of our two boys, Jeff and Joe, for many years. She was like a grandma to them and a huge support to us, their parents. She and Bill were very special people. We’ll always be so indebted to them. May they now both Rest In Peace.
