Thoughts and prayers to all the family from Mark and Janelle. I loved Wilma and knew her many many years in Milan Missouri. Brad Carter and I used to ride our bikes clear across town to her home one day a week where she specialized in baking cookies candy breads and cakes. She always welcomed us with open arms and that great smile she had. I know she is now reaping her heavenly rewards! As long as I can remember she was a great servant and child of God posting articles various times on her Facebook page. Will miss those
Love you all!
