Wilma was a wonderful homemaker; also, through the years she worked at LBW College and various other local businesses. In the early 1990’s Wilma decided to pursue her passion and become a licensed cosmetologist. In 1994, she graduated with an associate degree in Cosmetology from McArthur College.

As a cosmetologist she worked at JC Penney’s, then started her own beauty salon, the Twisted Scissors. She met Dr. Moore in 2009 at First Baptist Church. Their first date was Valentine’s Banquet; soon they were married and have enjoyed 12 years of companionship. They both sang in the First Baptist Church choir. In her retirement, she loved to grow flowers, mow grass, and garden. Wilma was a loving and wonderful lady that will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
