Sending my sympathy to the family especially Brandon and Mandy. My grandmother Madge Miller and Mrs Cooper were neighbors for many years. Later Miss Wilma kept an eye out for my Mimi and I greatly appreciated that. I always loved Miss Wilma’s quick wit. She will be missed by all who knew her.

I met Wilma only once, but loved her instantly. I knew her well though through her grandson, Ben Cooper. She was a lovely lady and much loved by her friends and family.
