Wilma worked for 28 years as a federal employee working in VA hospitals in Arkansas and Tennessee, and also at Fort MacPherson in Georgia. After her retirement in 1985, she and her husband Ralph were able to travel and enjoy going to Key Largo where they had a second home.

What a long and wonderful life Wilma had. She was blessed with a beautiful family and seemingly great health. I pray that God will comfort each of you and give you His peace as you go forward. I wish I could be there today but not possible. We will get together soon.

She has been my mother in law for the last 48 years and a wonderful, caring human being. She will surely be missed by me and by all who had the privilege of knowing her.

Debbie, Judy and Barbie

All of you and your families are in my prayers. It was so long ago when your wonderful mother and I became friends at Ft Mac. She was a kind, smart, and caring lady. My sympathy and love to all of you.
