Loved by many, she will be missed by her family and wide circle of friends.  Wilma will be forever remembered for her unwavering faith, patience and and loving, tender nature.  She loved sharing the Lord with others and helped introduce Him to her children and grandchildren. She was always very caring and looked after others, being everyone's shoulder to cry on, ear to vent to and always providing a comforting word. She loved family gatherings parties, cookouts and playing games like 31 and dominos...she was quite the competitor.  She loved her family very much and always the quiet behind the scenes  strength for her family.  She loved caring for and spending time with her 2 children: Cindy and Doyle (Elizabeth); and her grandchildren: Kailynn and Jerrod as well as numerous nieces and nephews.  Wilma was preceded in death by her children, Cindy and Doyle; her parents: sisters: Alna Cooper, Oletha Yocum, Patsy Vernon; and brothers Alton and Troy Johnston.
