Wilma Dean Reed, 84, went to be with her Lord on January 28, 2021 in Paris, Texas. She was born on September 26, 1936 in Glenwood, Arkansas to William Washington Johnson and Ella Pearl (Williams) Johnson.
Wilma loved to crochet, loved WMU, and gardening. She was a faithful servant of the church who loved camping, fishing (but only from the bank), and she was the absolute best at cooking wild game. Wilma was known as many things, including church secretary and Frisco Association secretary, but most importantly, she was a faithful wife, mother, and homemaker.
She had always said that even if one person through her life or in her death could come to Christ it was all worth it.
