So sorry for your loss. Mrs. Nelson was one wonderful lady and will be missed. Our prayers to her family.
My prayers for comfort are with Jeff and family during this time of loss.
Jeff, Susan, Jeff Jr.
Your family is in our prayers. Wilma will be missed by all who knew her. She was the secretary at my grade school (Neffs) and the choir director at the church (Rock Hill Presbyterian) which I grew up in. I know she will be missed as a mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother. May the Lord comfort all during grievance of a wonderful Christian lady who lived a long and fulfilling life.
So sad to hear of Wilma’s passing. What a dedicated lady. Sunday mornings she would lead the Sunday School attendees in a Guidepost devotional. Of course, for Church services she directed the choir. I remember going to her house in June to pick up “home grown” strawberries. And Don was always at her side. What a striking couple they made. Miss those days very much. My condolences go out to all the family including Wilma’s sister, Phyllis Coleman.
Love, Prayers & Condolences for all of you.
My condolences to Wilma’s entire family, her church family and her many friends. May the loved you shared and the memories made bring you comfort in the days ahead.
So sorry to hear of your loss! She was such a sweet lady. She will be missed.❤️🙏🏻
Wilma great lady well respected
