Obituary of Wilma Gilbert

Wilma Jean (Bolinger) Gilbert, 83, of Wichita, Kansas passed away Tuesday, August 1, 2017 in Wichita, surrounded by her family.

She was born October 10, 1933 in Stark, Kansas to Lawrence and Edith (Ludlum) Bolinger. She graduated from Moran High School in 1951. She worked in the cafeteria at Hugoton, so she could make sure her grandkids ate well. She enjoyed dancing with her square dancing club, and watching her grandkids play sports. She never missed a Royals game on TV. She will long be remembered for her kindness and hospitality, which was shown to many as she worked at the Cinnabar Café in the Marriott hotel in Wichita. Her family could always count on her.

Wilma is survived by two children; Don Settlemyer and wife, Kristie, of Neosho Falls, Kansas, and Melinda Martin of Wichita, stepchildren, Ted and Kathy Clubb of Haysville, Kansas, John and Susan Chambers of Wichita, and Sandra Chambers of Wichita; eighteen grandchildren, twenty great grandchildren, a sister, Ruth Settlemyer and husband, Vernon, of Neosho Falls, five nephews and their families, and many friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, a sister, Irene Clements, an infant son, Leslie Wayne, and husbands Woody Chambers and William Gilbert.
