  • My heartfelt condolences to the Gregg family – especially Stan, Mike, Randy & Nancy. It was my pleasure to visit the farm house and “care for” Wilma. She never made my job feel like “work” because we smiled & laughed and mostly just enjoyed visiting. She always said something interesting or inspiring, letting me know just how precious life & love & family is….l admired her will, her wit, her determination and most of all her love of family. She cherished her family, always updating me on their current activities. My last encounter with Wilma was short, but sweet. We shared a hug & kiss & smile, as she was accompanied by “her boys”. May you rest in Eternal Peace Wilma💛
    Sincerely, Brenda Stutz

  • To all of Wilma’s family and friends;
    I am deeply saddened to see the loss of one of the most beautiful ladies I had the fortune of meeting. Wilma and Stan were my neighbors and friends for several years. They were such a beautiful couple. One of my fondest memories of Wilma was the first time I entered her home; the beautiful white carpet in her home and my awe of how she kept it so beautiful married to a farmer and sons and grandkids in and out, amazing. She will be forever remembered.
    Deepest sympathy; Deborah Kay Davis

  • We are sorry for your loss. We always enjoyed seeing Wilma & Stanley when we would visit Palmyra Church of Christ when our son Mike was there. My Mom, Wanda (Leedy) Robertson , sends her condolences, for her and Wilma are first cousins, since their fathers, John Bryan and Leon Leedy were brothers. Prayers during this time.
