Obituary

Mrs. Wilma June Colvin, age 94 years, of Jefferson City, Mo. passed away Sunday, August 11, 2019 at Jefferson City Manor.

She was born at home on April 4, 1925 in Brumley, Mo., the daughter of Wilford George and Ersa Ellen (Groce) Winfrey. She was married on August 28, 1943 in Tuscumbia, Mo. to Dorlis Colvin who preceded her in death on June 8, 1969.

A lifelong resident of the Central Missouri area, Wilma graduated from Iberia High School in 1943. Following High School, she hitched a ride to St. Louis where she worked for the United States Cartridge Company during World War II. Wilma returned to mid-Missouri to raise her family and later began working at Chesebrough Ponds where she was employed as a factory worker, making Q-Tips until her retirement.

A woman of faith, Wilma was a member at Fairgrounds Road Church of Christ in Jefferson City.

Something she remembered doing with her mother, Wilma enjoyed taking walks. She often went to Runge Nature Trail or to the Capital Mall to get her exercise. She was an avid reader and loved historical novels and anything about the U.S. Presidents and First Ladies. Wilma loved the “Little House on the Prairie” and was full of knowledge on the subject. She was always there to lend a helping hand and loved people. Most of all Wilma enjoyed spending time with her family.

Survivors include: two sons, Gary Dorlis Colvin (wife Elaine) of Henley, Mo. and Larry Dale Colvin (wife Candy) of Washington, Mo.; four siblings, Terry Abrams of Santa Rosa, Calif., Helen Grip of Chevy Chase, Maryland; Ronnie Winfrey (wife Cindy) of Brumley, Mo., and Duane Winfrey (wife Tommie) of Navarre, Florida.; two sisters-in-law, Mary Kellison and Helen Colvin; and numerous nieces and nephews. Wilma will also be lovingly remembered as “Grandma Daisy” by her nine grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; and 10 great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, step mother, Irene Winfrey, one brother, Kenneth Kellison, one sister, Shirley Beard, and two brothers-in-law, Pat Abrams and Carl Grip.

Visitation will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at the Fairgrounds Road Church of Christ on August 16, 2019.

A funeral service will be conducted immediately following the visitation at 11:30 a.m. at the Fairgrounds Road Church of Christ with Carey Terry officiating. Interment will be conducted at 2:30 p.m. at Hawkins Cemetery in Brumley, Mo.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to The Fairgrounds Road Church of Christ, 1316 Fairgrounds Rd, Jefferson City, MO 65109 or the Fair Haven Children’s Home, 3132 N Fairhaven Loop, Strafford, MO 65757.

Funeral arrangements are under the direction of Freeman Mortuary.

My sympathy goes to the entire Colvin family and especially Gary and Larry with whom I went to school at Cole R-V at Eugene . Also, to Ronnie Winfrey, married to my cousin Cindy. I remember my family going to church at Scrivner Church of Christ with Dorlis and Wilma Colvin and their young family in the mid 1950s. Wilma remained a friend of my mother, Ruby (Allee) Wright, for many years. I remember Wilma as a very sweet and kind person indeed. May she rest in peace with God's love and mercy.
