Wilma was my co-worker in Division A of the District Court during the late 1980’s but most important she was my dear friend. She shared her many cooking skills and recipes with me. I still make her Cranberry jello mold every holiday season. She also made the best chicken salad with grapes. She was also a good friend to my Husband and when she retired from the Judicial Department, my Husband and I hosted her retirement party in our home. I will forever remember her as the gentle, kind soul that she was.
God Bless you Wilma, you will never be forgotten.
Loved Wilma! Wilma and Jack were friends of my parents, Jack and Lavona Farnsworth Such fond memories of a sweet and fun lady!
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family
