You could never go into Walmart and pass her up in an aisle without having to stop and visit. She would always ask about the people of Binger. She wanted to see pictures of your kids and grandkids. You could hear her laugh across the building at Walmart. She always spoke to everyone and would say, Oh Kid!!
Wilda was always concerned about her appearance up to her final hours. You never caught her without makeup, her hair fixed, clothes starched and jewelry. Lots of jewelry.
Wilda loved her job and Walmart and loved the people she worked with.
