  • Dearest Brenda and family. Don and I are so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. After talking with you that day in Mt. Vernon I often wondered how she was doing. So sorry for your loss but we have faith that she is no longer suffering and her pain and struggle is over. God bless! Love and prayers.

  • Our deepest sympathy to Wilma’s family. She had been a friend through the years from the Mount Vernon High School Class of ’57 through her participation in the American Heart Association. We were saddened to read about her passing. May you rely on fond memories to help you through this time of sorrow. We share in your loss. Sincerely, Susan (Nash) and Dick Huggins/Fredericktown

  • I remember Wilma as a young girl when she use to take care of my invalid grandmother, Stella C. Bell, of 9 W Lamartine St (that poor neglected house!) and we lived next door. Wilma was such a big help to her…a “treasure” was the word Grandma would use. Wilma was also a favorite baby sitter of mine. She always make an effort to speak to me when ever she would see me as an adult. I think I’d have to say Wilma was my first encounter with a truly Christian woman. She was a lovely lady! My most sincere condolences to her family.
