A golden heart quit beating. Hard working hands were put to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best.

Wilma M. Williams was a grade school teacher for 36 years. She began teaching in a one room school house in Hazard, Kentucky for 13 years and spent the remaining 23 years in Bethel, Ohio. She loved all of her students dearly. She talked about her memories of her teaching days often. She was a small woman with a BIG heart. She loved my great grandfather (Harold) dearly and remained true to him til' her last breath. She is an irreplaceable and remarkable woman. I admit, I was VERY  blessed to of had her in my life as my great grandmother. She was always on my side, even if I was wrong. She was a fighter. I lived with her for 17yrs and like any grandma would..she had me spoiled. She was my biggest fan and was ALWAYS full of laughs and helpful advice. I told her everything. She passed away 05/10/2010. Was I ready..? No! Was she ready..? Yes. Now It is my time to be strong and accept her decision to go home to my grandfather. I love you and I miss you. Farewell for now..

Wilma was truly an amazing woman. When i visited, She would sit there and share stories with me. We're from the same area so we compared what it was like when she lived there, And when i did. Ive been back in the rutheford's home since her death, but i can honestly say it doesn't feel the same. She made everyone feel welcome, She gave a warm feeling to the house.No one could deny it. You're missed
