Wilma was married to Edward Friedman on 12/25/56. This past December, the whole family was lucky enough to spend their 60th wedding anniversary together, a day we will always cherish.

Wilma & Ed have 4 children plus their spouses, Lee & Sheree Friedman, Nancy & Bill Taute, Kenny & Lori Friedman and Lois & John Snider. Wilma was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and always an avid volunteer. She loved  keeping fit by playing tennis, walking, doing aerobics or yoga . Ed & Wilma loved to travel together, seeing the world or attending weekend events with friends. Once Lois was in school, Wilma taught pre-school at the JCC, then she worked for a short time at a temporary placement service. In 1990, after Ed retired from Foley’s and they opened The Great Rug Company,

Wilma worked for many years at the store. One of Wilma’s passions was volunteering at Seven Acres and doing craft activities with the residents, specifically making items for the Head Start program. Previous volunteer opportunities were with the Taping for the Blind, The Women’s Home, and she even participated in a Judy Chicago tapestry project in the 70’s.

In addition to her 4 children, she leaves 8 grandchildren, Joseph (spouse Shauna) Taute, Rebecca Taute, Curtis Friedman, Alyssa Snider, Kyle Friedman, Lauren Snider, Evan Snider, Carter Friedman, and one great grandchild Brooks Taute. In addition to immediate family, Wilma leaves her sister Rena Goldstein, nieces Janice Knorr & Fran Walquist and their families. She was proceeded in death by her father & mother Harry & Esther Bolton, and brother-in-law Stanley Goldstein.

Thanks to her very special friends for their devotion Mariam Bain, Linda Wu, Doris Kalmin, and 3rd daughter Dana Bivens. We also want to thank for very special caregivers Sabrina & Kay, due to their loving care, she lived a very comfortable last 5 years.
