Wilma Marie (Hettinger) Congrove, 95, of Laurelville, entered into Heaven on July 14, 2020 at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was born on October 15, 1924, in Laurelville, the daughter of the late Willis and Minnie (Arledge) Hettinger. In 1941, she was united in marriage with her loving husband, Walter Congrove, who preceded her in death in 1996.

Wilma worked for RBM, also known as Essix Wire Factory, of Lancaster. Wilma was known as someone who was generous and loved helping people. She was also a strong, independent person who proudly mowed her yard well into her nineties and had no shortage of spunk. She will be sincerely missed.
