Wilma Ward Preston

Charlotte, VT


Wilma Ward Preston passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at age 87.


She was a 52 year resident of Charlotte, where she worked in the Charlotte Central School lunch room for 23 years and prior to that volunteered in the classrooms for 7 years.  Wilma was a 56 year member of The Order of the Eastern Star in Castleton, Charlotte and Hinesburg where she held several offices and participated in numerous charity projects. Wilma found much joy in sharing her passion for people by performing with the Unpredicatables at nursing homes, senior centers and community events for over 25 years.


Wilma was a warm and wonderful wife, mother, and friend to all. Her natural love of her grandchildren was never ending and enriched their lives in countless ways. Wilma will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by all those whose life she touched and perhaps baked for.


Left behind to cherish her memory are her husband Richard, son Ward and his wife Debbie, daughters Diana and her partner Patrick, Laura and her husband Steven Mack, several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.


The family would like to thank the VNA Home Health and Hospice for the exceptionally kind and compassionate care Wilma received.


There will be no visiting hours or services per Wilma’s request.  Please consider a memorial donation to the UVM Health Network Home Health and Hospice, 1110 Prim Road, Colchester, VT  05446.
