    So sorry for the loss of our dear friend. Wilma was one of the first people we met when we moved to Washington Court House. She had a kind and caring heart for everyone she met. Wilma loved her town and she represented it well. Roger and I will cherish the memories we have of our sweet friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and her city as everyone will miss her.

    Our deepest sympathies. I am a childhood friend of Wilma. Our families vacationed together. We left the area and didn’t return until my parents retired. As my parents were aging Wilma and I reconnected and she was a godsend. Always there for them and me. A truly bright wonderful giving woman. Many will miss her. She was a true friend. Dee Whited
