Wilma was born in Saskatoon, SK on June 14, 1928, to her parents, Alec and Myrtle Irvine and grew up with her siblings, Blanche and Jean. As a young lady, Wilma traveled all through Europe with her sisters and was even invited to a Garden Party with the Queen. She started her teaching career in Jarvie, AB where she taught in a one-room school house. Once settled into married life, she and husband Bill moved to Barrhead where she ended her teaching career and became a fabulous full-time mother. Education was important to her so she served on the Barrhead Public School Board for many years. Wilma loved sewing, knitting and crafting in general. She had a wicked sense of humor and was blessed to have many friends. Wilma was an avid reader and was a dedicated mother to her son Rod and daughter Shauna. Wilma will be greatly missed by all those who loved her. She is survived by her son Rod and his wife Susan and daughter Shauna and her husband Ed and grandchildren; Katie, Olivia, and Amy as well as her sister Jean.
