Joe & Megan, we are so very saddened by your loss. We also share Wilda’s love for the Chicago Cubs & will gladly cheer them on extra loudly just for her. Fingers crossed they’ll still play this year. Big hugs to you both and your entire family. Barry & Tracy Adams ADAMS & Son, Inc.

What a sad loss. It was my honor to have known Wilda and her family. They were all a blessing to the community. Years ago I attended an event at LMC Mendel Center (can't even remember what now) and Wilda was such a good sport to go to the stage to volunteer to be hypnotized. She was a gracious and lovely lady under all circumstances.
