Wilma Zuch was a caring and loving woman who supported and adored her family unconditionally. It has been said that when you think about Wilma, you think about rainbows and cookies. Seeing a rainbow on the family farm always reminded her of her late husband, Kerry, and comforted her knowing he was still with her. Her love for cookies stemmed from wonderful memories of making Christmas cookies with her children.
Wilma was a beloved wife to Kerry Zuch, and a devoted mother to 3 children; Marc, Wendy, and James. Together Wilma and Kerry owned Zuch farms in Sanborn. here they grew cherries, grapes, peaches, apples, and various seasonal vegetables. Even after Kerry's passing, Wilma continued running the farm on her own with much success!
She loved the holiday season, with Christmas being most important to her. To Wilma, it was the time for the family to be together and to spread joy and love. As the kids got older, and traditions started to diminish, she did the best she could to keep them going.
Wilma was known by her family and friends as a very conservative lady. As a big Trump supporter, she hated political correctness. She was also known for her great advice. Her best known saying was, “you have to forgive people no matter how they treat you.”
Along with baking with her family, Wilma was a creative sort, who enjoyed making crafts, quilts, and Mandela paintings. She also had an affinity for motorcycles, especially being a passenger on the bike. When not creating a new craft, Wilma could be found listening to country and oldies music. “These boots were made for walking” by Nancy Sinatra and “Mr. Bojangles” by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band were among her favorite songs. She also enjoyed anything from The Beatles.
