Wilma Raulerson Hufstetler, age 93, of Lake Butler, passed away on April 20, 2021, at Windsor Manner in Starke, with her daughter, Carolyn, by her side. Wilma was born on October 5, 1927 in Starke, to Willie A. and Onie Raulerson. She lived most of her life in Raiford and was a lifelong resident of Union County. She was a talented seamstress who worked for many years at the Lake Butler Apperal Company until her health forced her to retire. She was a feisty little lady who would speak her mind at the drop of a hat. She was once described, by the late Tommy Spires, as “Tough”. Although she may have been tough, she was also very loving and was faithful to her Lord, Jesus Christ. Wilma was of the Baptist faith and attended Johnstown Baptist Church for many years. She is preceded in death by her parents; her daughter, Linda Fay Smith; brother, Leroy Raulerson; sisters, Elvie Johnson and Eunice Moody; and great-granddaughter, Christy Smith.
Ms. Wilma is survived by her daughter, Carolyn (Jack) Sapp of Lake Butler; granddaughters, Angie Sapp (Chris) of Lake Butler, Terisa (Ronnie) Borum, and Lisa Smith both of NC; grandsons, Kel (Terri) Martin of Lake Butler and Danny Smith of NC; great-granddaughter, Brianna Martin of Lake Butler; and four great-great-grandchildren; numerous extended family also survive.
