Wilma always made me feel comfortable and welcomed! I was a new comer to Gilboa and the Historical Society.
Also when I started playing golf she always encouraged me and told me I’d “get it” and do better. She made it fun.
I would always listen to what she had to say. She was a very intelligent woman.
I know her family will miss her very much. They were always very important to her!
