She was raised in the Michael vicinity, and she and her husband, Walter C. Meyer resided in the Calhoun County area for many years.
It was after his passing on April 26, 1985, that she relocated to Grafton, then eventually to Jerseyville, where she has remained.A cook for many years, she worked at the A&W Root Beer in Jerseyville for 28 years, and cooked alongside her daughter, Judy, at the Elash Landing and lastly at the North State Street Restaurant in Jerseyville before retiring.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her first husband, Earl Hinson in 1953; a daughter, Carol Jean Surratt on February 6, 1999; a stepson, Kenneth Snider; two sisters, Hilda Simon and Pauline moore; and two brothers, Earl Cross and Hamer Angel, as well as two brothers in infancy.
Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, February 8, at the Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville, where a prayer service will be read at 4 p.m.
It was Wilma's wish to be taken "home," so a Mass of Christian Celebration will take place at 10 a.m. Wednesday, February 9, at the St. Michael's Catholic Church in Michael, with Father Don Roberts officiating.
Burial will take place at the St. Anselm's Catholic Cemetery in Kampsville.
Memorials may be given to a fund for her two grandsons and may be given at the funeral home.
