Her spirit is carried on by her two sisters Mary Drainer and Sally Hendrixson, her four children Terry Watson and Ron Everitt, Clarence “Greg” and Joan Gregory, Dawn and David Nelson, Deb and Ralf Kosowicz. Eight grandchildren Tony (Shannon) Randall, Nicole Gregory Sweeney, Cody(Danna) Gregory, Stacey Taplin, Jamie Nelson, Kristina (Cheyenne) Abnet, Tyler Esper, Brett Gregory and 12 great grandchildren. We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Wilma during her 90 years. She taught anyone who wanted to learn how to bake her famous pies, make freezer corn, jams, jellies and sweets unimaginable. Give to every charity that asks. Choose to believe the best about what they do with your money, no matter what your children say. She never had it in her to say no to anyone in need. She will be missed terribly by all those who knew and loved her.
