Sad to see in the paper of your Mom's passing. What a great person she was. I must tell you a little story that I cherish about her: My "bonus baby" Julie, was reluctant to go to kindergarten each morning. One morning I took her into her classroom and your Mom said to Julie (pointing to the front door: "You, Mommy and I are going to take a little walk. We will all walk down this hallway together, when we get to the end Mommy is going THAT way" (pointing south) "and you and I are going THAT way" (pointing north). I still chuckle when I think of this -that I was told which way to go! (by your precious Mom). I loved Wilma and appreciated her so much for her clever solution to my problem. She was a wonderful, great person. Mary Culler

Etched in our minds forever are many memories of our beloved friends from Buena Vista, Ohio , Wilma and Sylvin . Our lives have been truly blessed for having known such beautiful friends. Wilma was such a thoughtful & giving soul. Sylvin,such a craftsman. He hand carved and built a grandfather clock for us many years ago, and each time I wind that handsome clock, I am always reminded of our friendship with them both. Our prayers and condolences to the entire family . We also grieve in your loss.

Wilma was the cousin of my mother Lois. Her father and my grandmother were brother and sister. I was fortunate to have been able to meet Wilma as well as Wanda and John as an adult. I am so grateful to Wilma for all the family history and stories she shared with me and to be able to learn about my Stock family roots. I am very proud to be a part of this wonderful family all of whom have given this world so much. Wilma truly gave her life to helping others. My heartfelt sympathy to her children and their families and particularly to John and Mary Jean who have gone above and beyond to keep me feeling included. I know Wilma is free to be reunited with Sylvin and both are with God.

I would like to express my sympathy to the family. I remember Mrs. Sigg from the Paulding United Methodist Church many, many years ago. I believe she may have even taught one of my Sunday School classes. My mom and dad were Ralph and Joyce Wyatt. One of the boys may have graduated with my sister, Debbie Wyatt Schaefer. Mrs. Sigg was a wonderful person and I'm sure she will be missed by all.

Family and friends of Wilma Sigg. I am so sorry to hear about Wilma's passing. Having spent 5 years working with the OPRS Foundation, I was privileged to meet many Dorothy Love residents. Wilma always had a smile and a warm greeting for those she encountered. She was a talented musician and always willing to help with church services and memorial services. I never knew Slyvin, but she always spoke so lovingly of him. God bless all who mourn her and know that I count myself as blessed for having had the opportunity to be in that group.

What a wonderful, patient woman Wilma Sigg was! She always dealt with the antics of Mike and Tom with such good humor and patience! She was a wonderful teacher and an inspiration to me! I have no doubt that woman was in heaven instantly! I am sorry for all of you "boys" loss; you all showed her such great love!
