Wilma loved to spend time on the farm in Winchelsea, it was her happy place. She had the perfect spot in her chair looking out the window, watching and counting the cars go by. She enjoyed the peaceful surroundings of the farm along with the animals that would be around. Above all, she loved to spend time with her family, especially her grandchildren.
