Wilma Agnes Hrdlicka was born on Jan. 21, 1935 in rural Spillville, Iowa to Frank and Rose (Milota) Hrdlicka. She was united in marriage to Arnold “Arnie” Sobolik on Sept. 19, 1955 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Protivin, Iowa. To this union, five children were born. 
Wilma spent her life as a farm wife, helping out Arnold wherever she was needed. Prior to getting married, she worked at the Elms Cafe in Cresco. She enjoyed gardening, flowers, polka music, watching Wheel of Fortune, talking on the phone, baking and cooking. Some of her favorite things to make were banana chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and dumplings. She would feed anybody who was hungry, including animals. In addition to her many hobbies, she was also a member of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary. 
Wilma’s greatest joy in life was her family and pets, and she always made sure to spoil her grandkids. She will be remembered for her warm, loving soul, her large collection of roosters and chickens and always having her freezer stocked with items from Schwan’s.
She is survived by her children, Dennis (Deb) Sobolik of Cresco, Betty (Daniel) Wilson of Wabasha, Minn., Kevin (Diana) Sobolik of Lime Springs, Iowa, Randy (Tootie) Sobolik of Cresco and Nancy (Kevin) Pecinovsky of Cresco; grandchildren, Dustin Sobolik of Swea City, Iowa, Derek (Christy) Sobolik of Cresco, Bobbi Jo (Daniel Walker) Hammon of Ironwood, Mich., Brandon (Shannon) Pecinovsky of Preston, Minn., Hayley (Matt Coffey) Sobolik of Cresco, Walker Sobolik of Lime Springs and Nicole Pecinovsky of Cresco; great-grandchildren, Aslynn, Harper, Teague, Emerson and Brooklyn; and “granddogs,” Comet and Stella.
Wilma was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Arnold Sobolik in December 1996; a sister, Adella Kostohryz; and a brother, Leonard Hrdlicka.
