Wilma Pearl (Thompson) Thomas, daughter of Elmer and May Belle (Wells) Thompson, was born south of Bedford April 1, 1924 and passed away May 17, 1994 at Mercy Hospital, Corning, Iowa at the age of 70 years, one month and 16 days.  She grew up in the Bedford area and lived there most of her adult life, moving to Iowa City in June of 1993.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her brothers: Ronald, Paul, Claude and Doyle Thompson, and her sisters: Opal Thompson and Aileen Rosenthal.
