Wilma Dailey is named “Mrs. Peebles”

On Thursday, Sept. 17, Mrs. Wilma Dailey was named “Mrs. Peebles” of the 2015 Old Timer’s Days Festival. Mrs. Dailey was nominated for the honor by her husband, Charles.

In his letter to the OTD nominating committee Mr. Dailey wrote of his wife of 56 years, “Wilma has traveled with me and our three sons through 21 years of military service in many states and foreign countries. During my two years of absence for remote tours, she cared for our sons and our home alone.”

The title of “Mrs. Peebles” is given to recognize the winner’s outstanding achievements and contributions to her family and community.

Since moving to Peebles in 1987, Mrs. Dailey has been an active member of several clubs. She has generously given her time to promote and advance the concerns of her community and its citizens.

She has been a member of the Peebles Haphazard Homemakers Club (PHHC) since 1988. The PHHC awards scholarship money to graduating seniors and provides aid for local families in need. During her twenty-seven years as a club member she has held the positions of Secretary, Vice President, and is now serving as the club President. She has also assisted on the club’s Trip Committee.

Mrs. Dailey has also been a member of the Peebles Lions Club for twenty-four years. She has served as Secretary, President, and is currently the clubs Vice President. She is also an active, hands-on supporter of the Old Timer’s Days Festival.

In 2012 Dailey was elected the Peebles Outstanding Senior Citizen of the year.

Additionally, she has been a member of the Adams County Senior Citizens Board for the past three years

She is also a member the Peebles “Loose Threads” sewing club. Club members sew items for residents at the Wilson Children’s Home and they also create the Old Timer’s Days Raffle Quilt.

According to her husband, Charles, “As time consuming as her work in these activities is, she is also a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.”
