She was born to the late Philip and Clara (Schaff) Arnzen on February 4, 1942 in Cottonwood, Idaho and was the eldest of eleven children. Wilma graduated from Greencreek High School in 1960.

Wilma was a passionate gardener, constantly tending to her beautiful flowers. She also enjoyed camping, fishing, crocheting, puzzles, and playing cards and board games with her family and friends. While living in Greencreek, she was also an active member of the St. Anthony’s Catholic Church and Altar Society. Wilma was a genuine caregiver who always put the needs of others before her own. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, who will forever be in our hearts.
