Wilma was born in Glasgow, Scotland on March 4th, 1943. As a youngster she was full of life, mischievous and bright. She met her loving husband, Joseph, and married in 1964. In 1975, they emigrated with their three young children (9,6,4) to Brooks. Wilma resided in Brooks ever since, building a life for her family, and bringing joy to others along the way. Wilma retired from the Brooks Health Centre in 2002 after 23 years. She enjoyed her retirement tremendously by travelling with family, walking her beloved dogs, Bobby and Buddy, and having Saturday tea with all her family. All the while sharing her words of wisdom and discussing politics with passion. She also enjoyed weekly coffee with her friends where lots of laughs and camaraderie were had. Wilma will forever be remembered for her sense of humour and quick wit, her positive outlook, her strength, resilience, complete selflessness, and love of her family. Wilma understood what was important in life and she was forever grateful for all she had. She was an inspiration to her family and all that knew her. Her personality, smile and laughter lit up a room. She was an amazing woman with an amazing story, never to be forgotten.
