She was born Sept. 21, 1932, in Clay County, the daughter of Tom and Bertha (Berry) Newport.

Wilma was a lifelong member of Peniel United Methodist Church in Brazil.

She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother and was "employed" as a stay-at-home mom for many years until she went to work at CBS Records in the pressroom and then for VCSC.

She was also a member of the FF Gold Club and a world traveler, a member of the YMCA Splash Club and a 245-pint donor at the Indiana Blood Center.

Wilma was united in marriage to Lloyd O. Swearingen, who preceded her in death in 1967, and to Harold Icenogle, who preceded her in death in 1991.

Also preceding her in death were her parents, her brothers, Bobby, Richard (Pony), Harold Max, and an infant baby sister.
