She was my kindergarten teacher. I have forgotten many things about elementary school but many of my nice memories of elementary include Wilma Sereg. Also many sayings of life lessons that have stuck with me all through life may be attributed to this wonderful person God blessed me by knowing her. Continue reading

So sorry to hear of Wilma's passing. She was a very sweet and kind lady. We were neighbors in Eddyville around about 1970. I used to ride my bike up to the house and play with Joleen. Wilma always had a smile on her face and loved children. My heartfelt condolences go out to the families. I pray that God blesses and comforts you during this time of grief. Continue reading
