Wilma Luckwitz was born in Alberta Canada. She was brought up in London, Canada and Toronto, Canada. Wilma and her husband Bob’s story is an interesting one. Every year Bob’s family rented one of the cabins Wilma’s family owned. This happened from the time Wilma and Bob were 14 years old until Bob joined the US Air Force and was stationed in Spokane, WA. Wilma worked at a Canadian NATO Air Force station in London, Canada. When Bob got leave he would go back to London and see Wilma. During one of his leaves they got married.
Wilma and Bob lived in Spokane until Bob got out of the Air Force. They then moved to Cleveland. Wilma worked for Ohio Bell in Kent, Ohio and then Alltel Telephone Company as a bookkeeper. After 37 years in Ohio, Wilma and Bob moved to Highlands Ranch to be near their son Matthew, who had moved to Colorado. Wilma and Bob have lived in Highlands Ranch for 16 years.
Wilma enjoys travel and has been to Mexico, Europe, Africa, Egypt, Canada, of course, Alaska and Hawaii. Wilma plays Bridge and Canasta. She also belongs to the Seniors Hiking Club and hikes every Thursday. Her husband Bob is a wood carver and sells his creations at shows.
You will generally see Wilma greeting attendees as they come to the Highlands Ranch Historical Society presentations. Be sure to stop by and say hello to her.
