Wilma was born on Dec 20, 1922, the daughter of Homer and Irma Grace, and lived in south-central Iowa until age 14 when the family moved to Newton, Iowa. Wilma graduated from Newton Senior High School at age 17 and immediately started working at Rempp’s NAPA Auto Parts store in town as bookkeeper. During World War II, after the auto salesmen were drafted into the army, she took a job of auto parts salesperson for the Jasper County territory. During this time she met Donald Dipple, and they were engaged before he was drafted, but they waited to marry until after he had returned from service with the Marines. They married on Sept. 13, 1946. They enjoyed a wonderful life together and were married close to 55 years.
