Wilma Abart


Wilma Abart, 94, went to be with her Savior on April 21, 2011.  She was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was the daughter of Walter and Alda Ouart.

Wilma was born in Stuart, Nebraska on September 26, 1916.  She and her older sister, Erma, attended school in Stuart, where she became interested in nursing.  Compassion and caregiving were among the many gifts that Wilma chose to share with others. 

Wilma met her husband, John, while working in a doctor’s office, and they were married August 15, 1936.  Working side by side tuning pianos and crafting violins allowed Wilma and John to share in their love for music.  Big band style was their favorite, and they would often spend time together listening and reminiscing. 

Wilma and John enjoyed art in the form of photography.  Their home included a studio and dark room, where they would develop and print their photos.  Wilma would then complete the process with her oil tinting paints.  Many of these photos were of their two daughters, Di Ann and Merrily Sue. 

Wilma and John moved their family from Stanton to Omaha, Nebraska in 1949.  They became contributing members of Westside Methodist Church.  In recent years, Wilma was a contributing member to the Crystal Cathedral Community Church.

Stanton, She was preceded in death by her husband, John.  She is survived by daughter Di and spouse Richard Robb; daughter Sue and spouse Tom Gingrich; five grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and many grand-pets. She will be especially missed by Benny.

A private family memorial service will be held and she will be interred later in Nebraska.

    I am truly sorry of your recent loss. I sympathize with the families of those we have lost in death. Life can be such a challege when we are at the end of the familiar and at the beginning of the unknown. The pain and the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. My name is Brandy, I am one of Jehovah Witnesses and what has helped me to sustain through difficult times in knowing that the bible can be of so much comfort. At 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 it tells us that Jehovah God is the God of all comfort. We are comforted through the bible. The bible speaks of a time that we can see our dead love one again. It mentions in the bible at Acts 24:15 that it would be a ressurection of the righteous and the unrighteous. Jesus said in John 5:28,29 all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out. How encouraging this would be for us to see our dead love ones agian. Wouldn’t this be something to look forward to? I have a small bible tract that explains this ressection and how we can benifit from it. I would like to mail you or your family a copy if you are interested. You may email me with any questions or you can request a copy by writing to Kingdom hall of Jehovah Witness at 4400 E 31st Kansas City, Mo. 64127. Thank you and I hope this was of encouragement to your family.
