  1. It was a delight to welcome Kenneth & Wilma to Maranatha. Though they were retired, we had the privilege of knowing them while their health was still relatively good. I loved seeing Wilma’s beaming smile while I was preaching & it was never unusual to see her mouthing the words to a verse I was quoting. It was apparent on every level that God’s Word filled Wilma’s heart & brought joy to her life. She will be missed on earth but her heart was already in heaven.

  2. Sad to hear of Aunty Wilma’s passing .
    I was privileged to live in the student dorm that the Stewards were the house parents for in Mussoorie . Want to express my condolences to the large extended family

  3. Missing my Mother-in-law. One of my greatest joys in life was being in her home. Wilma took me into her heart and made me a son to her. She was so easy to talk to and always brought laughter into my life.
    To Lily, Gloria and Phyllis, love you all and praying for each of you. Sorry I can’t be there today for Mom’s memorial.
    To Mom,
    Thank you for entrusting me with your daughter Kathy. Thank you, Mom, for all your love and prayers throughout our lives.
    Love
    Bruce
