Wilma Florence Imeson (nee Hanna)
January 16, 1924 to September 11, 2023
Wilma was born in Perth, Ontario, to Fred and Florence Hanna. Wilma had two sisters, Ivey (older) and Arlie (a few years younger) and they lived an idyllic childhood. When reminiscing about her life Wilma fondly remembered skating on the river in Perth. She participated in many sports at Perth Collegiate and showed her prowess as a keen competitor in track and field.
After high school, Wilma worked for the Bank of Nova Scotia in Perth and while there made the biggest decision of her life and transferred to Toronto. She initially resided at Georgina House, a residence for single women, and worked at the BNS McCaul Street branch.
At a dance she attended with several friends from Georgina House she met Charles (Chuck), who also happened to be from Perth. He was a student at the Radio College in Toronto. It didn’t take long for them to become inseparable.
After marrying in 1950, Wilma and Chuck lived in a three-story walk-up and Wilma accompanied Chuck to various Ontario towns where he installed phone switching equipment for Northern Electric. In 1952, son Rob was born and in 1955 the family moved to a house in Richmond Hill. This neighbourhood was a great support for Wilma when Chuck worked out of town and they established lifelong friends there. In 1956, daughter Judy completed the family. Once Judy and Rob were in high school, Wilma worked as a bookkeeper including experiences at a pool company, an accounting firm, and a furniture retailer.
Wilma and Chuck were long-time members of the Richmond Hill Presbyterian Church where they both sang in the choir; Chuck was an elder and Wilma was the church bookkeeper. Together, they were both devoted members of the Eastern Star.
Once the kids had both married and left home, Wilma and Chuck moved to Bolsover on Canal Lake, a beautiful piece of property. They also spent winters in Brownsville and Harlingen, Texas where they took up square dancing and met people from all over the U.S. and Canada.
Throughout her adult life, Wilma’s number one interest (after family) was golf, winning many tournaments as well as the games at the annual Hanna family reunions.
After several years in Bolsover, Wilma and Chuck moved to a smaller property in Orillia that was easier to maintain. This served them well until Chuck passed in 2003. Subsequently, Wilma moved in with Judy and her family in Newmarket before moving into a seniors’ residence and ultimately a long-term care facility back in Richmond Hill. She will be missed by all who knew her.
Wilma was predeceased by her husband Chuck. She leaves her daughter Judy, son Rob, grandchildren Valerie, James, Jessica, and Paul, and great-grandchildren Ian, Gavin, Hali, and Hannah.
