Wilma Irene Fee was born Aug. 5, 1919, in Marion County, the daughter of John Vincent Brady and Alta Estella (Walker) Brady.

Wilma attended country school at Union and Spring Hill, in Marion County. On March 27, 1937, she was united in marriage to Corwin Roff “Buddy” Fee in Winterset. The couple first lived north of Knoxville before purchasing a farm near Bussey in 1950. In 1962, Corwin and Wilma moved to their farm south of Knoxville. In their retirement years they moved into Knoxville.

Church was an integral part of Wilma’s life since her early childhood. She taught Sunday School at the Apostolic Church and was active in the ladies’ group. She was also a member of the Farm Bureau for over 50 years and served on the ladies committee board for many of those years. Wilma also taught Ag in the Classroom to 2nd grade Knoxville students for 15 years. An unwavering faith in God and a great sense of humor carried Wilma through all of her 93 years. She will be greatly missed by her family, her church family and her many friends.

Wilma passed away on Thursday, March 28, 2013, at the Knoxville Hospital and Clinics at the age of 93 years.

She was preceded in death by her parents, sister, Edith Bruere, brothers Bob and Ronald “Bud” and her husband, Corwin “Buddy” in 1997.

Those left to honor her memory include her daughters Janice Allard and husband John of Oskaloosa and Carol Streeter and husband Verle of Des Moines; son, Corwin D. Fee and wife Carol of Knoxville; 6 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren and many other family members and friends.
