|My goodness!!! I am 80 years old and went to Ontario Schools AND the Malheur Library. I remember Wilma and her checking books out for us as does my husband who knew her too. I picked up the paper and immediately saw and knew her. Such a wonderful and knowledgable person she was. God Bless her as Gods' newest angel. I believe!!!|

|I graduated from OHS in 1947 and also worked with Wilma after school; she was so very helpful. I also remember after my parents passed away, it was nessessary to give away many of my Dad's books, and Wilma called their home while I was still in town to tell me she found a $20.00 bill in one book; he apparently used it as a bookmark.|

|My deepest Sympathy to you Wilmas family. but she was met by Jesus and her parents.
Wilma taught my children in SS, she was especially kind and worked with my Autistic son. Wilma and Mrs Andrews were the wonderful pair.
I was so glad that Wilma was not here when the church had the big blow up which split the church, it was hard on we who had been members for 50 years,
Wilma was a silent saint, she took minutes for years, she was a
hard one to follow.
Blessings to all of you her family, she will be greatly missed. In Christian Love Betha Kagayama

|Dear Mr. and Mrs Asmussen, I worked with Wilma and Miss Nesbit in the Malheur County Library from 1948 to 1952. She was so kind, knowledgeable and patient. She was the one who showed me what to do and helped me so much. We exchanged Christmas Cards ever since. She was a truly remarkable lady and loved every one of us (I felt). One of the things I remember about her, was her ability to pick out books for people and know they would be read. She just seemed to have this God given ability to help others. I will miss her even though we hadn't seen each other for a long time.|
