My deepest sympathy to the family of Wilda. I was 1 of her caretakers at Brookside and she was always such a joy. She was the only one who would sit out in the common area all day and not just go back to her room. We always had her to talk to and joke around with and she was always so easy going. Wilda, I'm glad I had you as a part of my life even if it was for a short time, you brought much laughter to us all. REST IN PEACE MY FRIEND!

To the Knight Family: Our deepest sympathies in the loss of your mother. We both worked with Wilda at GE along with my late mother Maria; she was one of my mom's first friends at work when she started there in the early 70's. She was always so fun and funny; we laughed about anything and everything. She was a real treat and a great person to know. We enjoyed working with her. May she be at peace now and remembered for the kind and nice person that she was. My sympathies, Dana and Bryan Whittlesey

I worked with Wilda at GE back in the good old days when GE was a fun place to be (70s 80s). She was always quite a character and enjoyed her job and co-workers. She had a great look out on life and talked about her family in such a way you knew they were her heart. My sympathy to all her family members and friends
