Wilma enjoyed her home that she shared with her dog in Wapello. When I walked or biked, Wilma always acknowledged me and wanted to visit. She shared her stories of working at the old maid rite to Thatchers and Louisa Co. Care Facility. She always enjoyed it when I brought down guac from Sombrero for her to eat.

Wilma and I were classmates all the way through school. Didn't know we were fellow animal lovers, but I'm not surprised. I'm sorry to hear of her passing. My sympathy to her family.
