Ms. Wilma Warren, Age 83, of Riverview, passed away Saturday afternoon, December 5, 2020.

She was born August 19, 1937, in Cleveland, Ohio, a daughter of the late Agatha and William Eckerfield.

Wilma was preceded in death by her siblings Agnes Philip,

Rosemary Kayser, and William Eckerfield.

Wilma is survived by five daughters and two son-in-laws, Rhonda White (Rick) of Lithia, FL, Roberta Davis of North Royalton, OH, Devyne Woodbury (Jordan) of Tampa, FL, Chelsey Warren of Riverview, FL, and Angel Warren of Riverview, FL; seven grandchildren, Candice White of Seffner, FL, Richard White of Providence, RI, David White of Lithia, FL, Madison, Alyana, and Emma Woodbury, and Aria Warren; and several great grandchildren.  She also leaves many other family members and friends who will sadly miss her.

Wilma was known by everyone to have the purest of hearts.  She loved to gossip, was a fantastic cook, and was a great pleasure to know and love.  She was a foster mother to numerous children, raised five beautiful daughters, and lived life by the golden rule.  She led by example. There was never a job too large or too small that she would not tackle.  She was a strong, determined and fiercely independent woman. We will miss her every day.

Funeral service will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, December 19, 2020, at 110 N MacDill Ave., Tampa, FL.

Florida law states “A cremation may not be performed until a legally authorized person gives written authorization for such cremation,” (FS 497.607).  Furthermore, the law defines whom the “legally authorized person” is and sets up the order of priority of next of kin. We require a written authorization before scheduling any cremation or funeral services. The “Authorization for Cremation and Disposition” form must be signed by the next of kin in the following order: spouse, son or daughter (of legal age), parent, brother or sister, grandchild, grandparent.
