Wilma worked at Fort Leonard Wood in civil service in the laundry as a supervisor. She was dedicated to her job and was a very hard worker. After she retired from civil service she began to raise dogs. This love of dogs led her to start Robymo Kennels. She raised a variety of dogs, and spent many hours taking care of them, always proud of each one that was born in her kennel. She was a great lover of all types of animals and there was never an animal turned away, all received love and care from her.
Wilma was a member of the Roby Assembly of God Church.
She married Robert Koehler on December 1, 1996. They spent 15 years together, doing the things they enjoyed, working in the kennel, raising animals, fishing and hunting.
She was a very special lady and will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
