Wilma worked for O’Sullivan Industries for 13 years and then for Walmart for more than 13 years. Her great accomplishment was raising her boys. She was known for her love of her family and was always helping someone out. She was an avid Chief’s fan who did not give up on her team, even when everyone else had. Wilma enjoyed flea markets and thrift stores. She truly enjoyed a bargain and found a reason to bring home a good deal even when it really wasn’t needed. She also enjoyed sewing, carnations and eating chicken at Gebhardt’s on Fridays. Wilma always had a joke for her coworkers and was known to have a heart of gold.
Wilma is survived by her sons Brian Puckett and Brent (Melinda) Puckett of Lamar, MO, and by four sisters; Mary Kay White of Lamar, MO, Tracy (Chuck) Kennedy of Joplin, MO, Pamela (Ron) Slater of Lamar, MO and Connie (Jerry) Smith of Rich Hill, MO.
