Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Barbara and Dennis,
    Sending my deepest sympathies to you both. I am keeping you both in my thoughts and prayers this week.

  2. It was a delight getting to know Wilma while she resided at the Cottages at Unity.
    She was the perfect example of a lady, with her beautifully coiffed hair and her properly manicured nails. She always looked like she was ready for a tea party. I will miss Wilma and her daughter, Barb, when I go to visit my mom at the Cottages. I would have loved to know Wilma in her prime and hear her play the piano. She was a very accomplished woman and lived a full life.

  3. Deepest condolences to Barbara and Dennis. Aunt Wilma was always smiling and positive. Our family albums are full of many holiday pictures with Aunt Wilma, Uncle Tom, Barbara and other relatives – good times shared by all. Lori and I will always have fond memories of Aunt Wilma – especially her extraordinary kitchen talents, in addition to her musical gifts.

  4. Dear Barb,
    I was saddened to read of your mother’s passing after such a long life. She must have had a positive influence on you.

    I’ve lost your address, but know you later taught in Africa after Gates Chili.

    God bless you and comfort you.

    • Wilma, we were neighbors for 30 years but didn’t get to know each other until I retired! Loads of laughs when I would visit and bring you chicken soup! I enjoyed looking at your family photos and talking golf! We were both “lucky neighbors “! Thanks for all the fond memories! I will miss you….
