Wilma Lee Cotone, 71, passed away January 14, 2023. She was born July 10, 1951, in Wadsworth, Ohio, to the late Melvin and Mary Mildred (nee Pelfrey) See. Wilma was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandson, Jacob, were her world. She was affectionately known as “Silly Willy” for her love of jokes and ability to make everyone laugh. She was kindhearted and always saw the good in everyone. When she wasn’t spending time with her family, she enjoyed word searches and solitaire.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Melvin and Mary See; her sister, Debra Bolan; and her brother, Clint See.
