Wilma and Joe’s careers took them from Fort Worth to Farmington, N.M., Denver, Colo., Midland, Houston, Traverse City, Mich., and Bakersfield, Calif., before they retired in Tyler in 1990. They now call Waxahachie their home. Wilma was an accomplished accountant. She loved spending her spare time sewing, traveling, cooking, exercising and shopping.
