Wilda was a longtime resident of Bellingham, Washington since 1965. Wilda owned and ran the Varsity Drive-In on Samish Way from the mid 1960's to the early 1970's.

At age 87, she passed away at the Mount Baker Care Center on January 30, 2013 from the flu. She was the loving mother of Melva Clemenson (Nichols) of Bellingham and Bev Jonson (Nichols) of Mount Vernon.

Wilda was born in Oneida, Tennessee and was the daughter of Charles Cloyd Blair and Nevada Blair (West). She and her family moved from Tennessee to Dayton, Ohio where she met her husband Melvin A. Nichols. Wilda and Melvin moved from Dayton to a farm near Farmersville, Ohio. In 1965, they sold their farm and moved to Bellingham, Washington and bought a drive-in restaurant called Varsity Drive-In located on Samish Way.

Later, she met and married Douglas Munroe and resided in Everett, then moved back to Bellingham on 32nd Street. Douglas preceded Wilda in death in 1997. Melva also preceded her in death in 2011.
