She had a brother, Cecil, and a sister, Norma, who died at an early age from Multiple Sclerosis. Following graduation from Blockton High School she married Charles Blake on August 16, 1940, in Maryville, MO. They lived most of their lives in the Blockton and Atlantic, areas with brief residences in Denver, CO and California, while Charles was in the military. Wilma was a member of the First United Methodist Church in Atlantic where she was an active member of United Methodist Women's Circle. Wilma was a dedicated wife, a true homemaker, although she worked part-time for a few years at the Crabtree Printing Co., in Atlantic. Her sons will always remember her generosity of sending baked goods and many food items to their homes after family gatherings. \,as an ex- respected arL !_ upp0rted their lives with her sons.

This is an estimate, however, and we will have buying houses, enovating w w w. r o 1 a n d f u n e r a I to see how much the actual savings come to. Under the old system, the state had little control over costs, and we normally have a shortfall requiring an additional app:opriation each spring.
