Wilda grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and later moved to Vicksburg, MI. She was a long-time member of the lioness club and worked at the Family Fare in Vicksburg for over 30 years. She always loved traveling back to the UP to visit and spend quality time with her family, and she would often work at the camp store on Brevoort Lake. She enjoyed playing card games, especially Yahtzee, and she also loved to read and do crafts, like cross stitching. Her leisure activity included visiting the casino, gathering bear and moose collectables and watching the wildlife from her backyard.
Wilda always had a deep, endless love for her family and always cherished every moment with them. She developed a special love for her grandchildren later in life and always supported everything they did, including going to their sporting events and school activities.
Wilda was a very special, wonderful woman who will forever be remembered and missed by all who knew and loved her.
