The family would like to thank Hospice of Southern WV and friends who attended her for their care and compassion. In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory to the Beckley Art Group or Hospice of Southern WV would be appreciated.
To those who knew her well, she exemplified in life the song "I Did It My Wy". Peace and rest Wilma.
