Wilma had a strong faith in God and made sure any time the church doors were open, she and her family were there.  She taught her children to memorize Bible verses and never doubt the Lord was real.  Wilma's compassion for others was apparent as she was often known as the neighborhood "mom".  Her house was always open as a safe place for her boys and their friends to play or hang out. There was always food on the table if they needed a meal and all were welcome. Affectionately known as "Nana", her 3 Grandchildren meant the world to her and were one of her greatest treasures. Her legacy truly is her family and the values she instilled in each of them.  Family was everything to Wilma and for such a small woman her big heart and strong faith made a lasting impact on so many people. She will be greatly missed but we know we will all she her again one day.
