Wilma Deloris, 85, of Choctaw, Oklahoma died October 15, 2021. She was born on March 6, 1936 in Beardstown, Illinois to Monroe and Majorie Self. She was extremely witty and we will never forget all of her "Wilma-isms." She loved singing old hymns, with her saying, "I might not sing good, but I always sing loud." She worked as a Care Giver, serving for Mobil Meals at St. Matthews Methodist Church up until the day of her passing. She cherished all the relationships formed there. Wilma also enjoyed reading, sewing, cooking, and long phone calls. Wilma also had a love for her church and was a faithful member of Charity Freewill Baptist Church.
She is survived by her children Kenneth Hendon and wife Ronda of Galesburg, Illinois; Tonua Hulette and husband Ron of Choctaw, Oklahoma; Ben Hendon of Choctaw, Oklahoma; brothers Wayne Self of San Diego, California, Bill Self and wife Sandra of Indianapolis, Indiana; and fifteen grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
