    Amy and other family members, Ron and I have thought many times of Wilma over the past 45 years since she worked for Ron at Thiel. She was his right arm there helping him with Admissions procedures and activities. We are so sorry that she has gone, but we know she has left you with many memories. We are sending you many heart-filled wishes for peace and comfort as you go through these difficult days. Dori and Ron Ingersoll

    I am so sorry for your loss. May God’s promise bring comfort to your family. There will be “a new earth… and He will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore…. I am making all things new.” Revelation 21:1-5

    Dear Beth, Amy and Dick –
    Aunt Wilma was a great lady. I will never forget our many happy times together at Lake Ariel and in Ocean Grove. I can’t help but think of everyone up in heaven who was waiting for her and happy to see her. I know that was a wonderful reunion.

    I’m thinking of you all and hope you are finding comfort in all the good memories you have.
    Love, Connie Beth (as your mother used to always call me)
