Wilma was always so confident on the bus radio; I miss her cheery voice. She was so bubbly at the Christmas bus luncheon where I saw her last.
So sorry for your loss,
Barb the Bus Driver

I worked in the office at Kunkels for almost 4 years where Wilma would occasionally bring us treats like those delicious cupcakes she was always bragging about. She was also my kid's bus driver-she drove Alec for 5 yrs & Liam for almost 2 yrs and I always trusted her capable skills to get them from Teeswater to Walkerton safely every day in all kinds of weather. She was very dependable and would have to be pretty sick to ever take a day off. We miss seeing her cheery smiles & waves but were glad to be there for her beautiful tribute today. Our sympathies to the family. She was a very special lady & will be greatly missed.
