We know Wilma Jean only through her daughter, Kim, who continues to carry her mom's spirit on Earth through gardening and a love of adventure. It is a very difficult time, we wish Kim, Rob, and Wilma Jean's family much peace.

I MET JEAN in 1979. She became a close friend. My whole family enjoyed Jean. Her first husband, Joe and my husband Joe became friends too! Jean introduced me to slot machines. My world changed, as I was hooked! Many times we went to the " boat" ! Jean and I shared many private conversations. I will now " talk to her" daily as I believe her spirit will hear me. I am most grateful I was able to tell her I loved her. I the told her how I needed some ruby red slippers to get me back home to Kansas. She did laugh.
