Siblings; Keith (the late Martha) McCollough Webster City, Don (Donna) McCollough Webster City, Jan Burnett Denison Iowa, Kathy (Randy) Guhl of Lakeland, Florida. Brother in-law and sister-in-law Art and Carol Ades of Mason City. And many special lifelong friends who will carry on her memory.
Wilma was avid quilter, seamstress, and cook/baker, and fan of anything her children and grandchildren were participating in from scouting to athletics to the musical arts. All those things moms and grandmas are “required,” to be a fan of.

Words to describe Wilma came easy. Faithful, proud, honest, caring, multi-talented, loyal, opinionated but non-judgemental, caring, patient, compassionate, a collector of special reminders, humble, and baker of “grandma” bread and banana cream pie.

She was currently a passionate volunteer at Clear Lake Christian church, 25 years with Nelson Petroleum, 7 years with Serta in Clear Lake.

Wilma was preceded in death by son Mike, parents William and Bernice McCollough, several brothers-in-laws and sister-in-laws and aunts and uncles.
