October 4, 1932 — December 2, 2023



Wilma Louise Walton  was born October 4, 1932, in Forney, Texas to parents Stella Britton-Brewer and Wiley Ross. Wilma was a woman of unshakable faith and dedicated her life to Christ at a early age. She later went on to become a long time member of Solid Rock Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas alongside friends and family.

    She attended Lincoln High school in Dallas, Texas and later began working for the Rutherford Metropolitan Business College for 15 years, doing administrative work for a local city council woman. She then went into private home health care attending to the elderly- showcasing the love and dedication she had for helping others.
