Wilma Jean Prewett

May 10, 1933 — February 2, 2022

Wilma Jean Prewett, daughter of the late Lee Howard Hart and Myrtle Thelma (Robson) Hart was born May 10th, 1933, near Hartville, Missouri. She departed this life February 2nd, 2022, at Mercy Hospital, Springfield, Missouri, at the age of eighty-eight years, eight months, and twenty-four days.

She was preceded in death by her father and mother, daughter, Nita Jane Lookhoff, brothers, Leonard Howard Hart of Mansfield and Dale Lee Hart of Hartville.

She is survived by sons, Danny L. Lawler and wife, Carla, of Strafford, MO., and Russell G Lawler of Springfield, MO.; Grandchildren, Laura Pfister and husband, Tim, of Strafford, MO., Kurtis Lawler of Springfield, MO., Tia Blystone and husband, Nicholas, of Slidell, LA., Steven Lookhoff of Fredericksburg, VA.; great-grandchildren, Nicholas, Jonathan, and Kyle Pfister all of Battle Ground, WA., Krystal and Harley Blystone of Slidell, LA., and Airabella Lookhoff of Fredericksburg, VA.

She was born and raised on the family farm north of Hartville. After many years of living in Missouri, she moved to New Orleans, LA. She enjoyed New Orleans jazz music, her cats, and the love of shopping at garage sales and thrift stores. She was always proud of how she dressed and the complements she received knowing most all of her clothes were “bargains”. She lived in New Orleans until after the death of her father when she moved back to Hartville. While in Hartville, she was able to work at her dream job, working in the thrift store that her brother Leonard and his wife Nadine owned. After Hartville, she moved to an assisted living facility in Springfield, MO, and later a nursing care facility in Mansfield, MO.

There will be no memorial service at this time. A small memorial will be held at a later date, after which her ashes will be spread.
