    Wilma Virginia Lawrence, 82, passed away March 21, 2009 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Grand Junction of complications from a stroke.

    Wilma was born April 21, 1926 to Jess and Alva McKinney Huffman at Silver Cliff, Colo. Her family moved to Hatch, N.M., where she grew up and graduated from Hatch High School.

    She is survived by a son, Albion, of Moab; a granddaughter, Vicki Roads, of Texas; great-grandchildren, Alyssa Roads, of Moab, Jeremy Bailey, of Mancos, Colo., and numerous nephews and nieces.

    She was preceded in death by her husband; a daughter, Andrea Lawrence Roads; a grandson, Donny Roads, and a granddaughter, Penny Lawrence.
