She loved to travel with her husband, spending time with family and friends and always had a soft spot for cats. After retiring from Southern Bell Telephone Company in 1976 she had more time to devote to her husband, family, and the work of the church. As years past and her body slowed you could always find her sitting in her favorite chair reading and watching movies or looking out of the kitchen window at birds and squirrels. She had a standing appointment on Friday’s at 2:00 to get her hair done, her nails were always brightly polished, and she never left the house without a little color on her lips. She was a loving wife, daughter, sister, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and will always be remembered for her gentle spirit.
Wilma is survived by her husband Charles “Glenn” Rapp; sister Linda Hill of Rock Hill, SC(Jim); sister Sharon Culton of Rock Hill, SC(Ronnie). She is also survived by children Russell Hovis (JoAnne) of Rock Hill; Roger (Trisha) Hovis of Blythewood, SC; Cindy Rawson, Farmington, MO; Becki Morgenstern (David) of Washington, IL; Scott Rapp (Lisa) of Rock Hill, SC and 10 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her brothers Albert House, Fred House, Carl Lynn House, and son Timothy Hovis.
