  • Vicky and family. so sorry to hear about Wilma. I did not know your Mom long but we were pals. May she rest in peace.

  • Wilma was a beloved member of our congregation at Glen Echo Presbyterian and of our Presbyterian Women group. We are all missing her kind and gentle spirit. We rejoiced when she won her battle from breast cancer. Covid-19 has made it impossible for us to properly mourn her passing. Please know she will be missed, but not forgotten. In deepest sympathy, our prayers are with the Family.

  • Vickie, Jackie, Ronnie & Donnie (Skin Men) – Your mom was a rock to all who loved her – she had the most peaceful, accepting spirit who never changed. We have so many happy, funny memories of all of you. Through the years Wilma (besides all her many beloved pets) her favorite things to share were thoughts about all of you. Please know we are grieving w/you and know that you are in our prayers. We believe she has been happily reunited w/all her many friends/relatives and pets that have gone on before her.

    We hope that our paths will cross again and we can keep in touch-maybe we can meet again on one of your trips to South Carolina.

    Much love,
    Tom and Brenda (& Gloria and her family)

  • Vickie and Lew and Family,

    My prayers are with you during this time.
    My heart is sad for you, Moms are special
    and difficult to lose.
    Rebecca and Family

  • We sure miss Wilma-our best neighbor of all time-on Brighton Rd. But we take comfort in knowing that she has been reunited with her family and four-legged friends. Especially Bear and Sassy who we knew so well, and Lucy who we heard so much about. We really count our blessings that we got to know Wilma. She was an amazing woman. Thinking of all the Meyers’ family at this time.
