Wilma  Hueston
Wilma Jean Hueston, 94, of Westville, Ill., left the Earth to join her husband in the Lord's presence at 1:11 a.m. Tuesday, November 26, 2019.
Wilma Jean Hueston was born May 4, 1925, in Cayuga, Ind., the daughter of Hershel and Ruth Sherman (Murdock).
She married James Robert Hueston on December 16, 1945, in Perrysville, Ind.
She will be dearly missed by her son, Robert (Brenda) Hueston of Georgetown, Ill., and her daughter, Sherri Anderson of Avon, Ind. She also is survived by her sister, Dorothy Myers; brother, Norman (Susie) Sherman and Norma (Ed Myers); and many nieces and nephews. She was blessed with 10 grandchildren, Suzanne and Jay of Colorado, Jennifer (Joe) of Tennessee, David (Anne), Brian, Carrie (JJ), Kristi (Jeff), April (Connor) of Illinois, Jeremy (Amber) of Kentucky, and Amber (Dave) of Indiana: 22 great-grandchildren, Kyle, Drew, Luke, Atley, Kole, Emma, Madilynn, Mia, Sloan, Nash, Quinn, Tara, Zach, Tyler, Karleigh, Dalton, Hannah, Taylor, Ava, Chloe, Jenna, Macey and Emily; two great-great-grandchildren, Zach, Ellie, and is expecting another great-great-grandson.
She was preceded in death by her husband; her son, Phil (Beverly); her parents; and sisters, June and Margaret.
Wilma's love of family and passion for life kept her strong and active. She was known as the "Energizer Bunny" and was always ready and willing to keep on going. She embraced life, enjoyed traveling to Hawaii, Germany, Caribbean Cruises, Alaska, Mexico, Canada and across the United States.
She retired from Sears after 15 years.
She accepted Christ as her Savior and was an avid member of the Grape Creek Baptist Church. She loved sewing, crocheting, tatting, quilting, macramé and making floral arrangements. She was enthusiastic in supporting and cheering on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren's activities. She loved the days she spent camping, fishing, mushrooming, gardening and playing euchre. She enjoyed shopping and lunch with her friends and spending as much time with her family as possible.
She was admired by all who met her for her ability to overcome adversity and surrounding herself with a positive attitude and her perseverance. She'll be sadly missed as the matriarch of our family. Her strong family values she bestowed upon her children and grandchildren will ensure her legacy lives on in the hearts of all whose lives she touched.
A Celebration of Wilma's life will be at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, November 30, at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Westville, 414 S. State St., Westville, IL 61883. Officiating will be Pastor David Leary. Visitation will be 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Saturday at the funeral home. Burial will follow the service at Sunset Memorial Park in Danville.

We will miss you, Aunt Wilma! You were always a staple at our reunions. You amazed us at your tenacity. Such a special memory shared with you in 2018 at John and Patty's cabin. Love to my cousins.
