She lived a long and beautiful life, spreading joy and wisdom to everyone blessed to have known her. Wilma was an incredibly gifted pianist and loved singing praises to the Lord and sharing his Word to all who would listen. She always led by example, and what a glorious example she was. Wilma enjoyed participating in the Ms. Senior Arkansas Pageant for several years, such a beauty inside and out. She was a long time member of the Mena First Assembly of God. The impact she had on the world will never be forgotten. To know her was to love her.
