Irma Gonzales Wilhelm

June 2, 1961 — May 4, 2023

Irma Gonzales Wilhelm, a beloved mother, sister and grandmother, passed away peacefully on May 4, 2023, at the age of 61. She was surrounded by her loving family as she departed this world and joined her Lord.

Funeral Services will be held for Irma at 2 pm on Tuesday, May 9, 2023, at the Plains First Baptist Church.  Viewing will be in the Sanctuary at First Baptist prior to the service from 11 am to 2 pm. 

Born in Karnes City, TX on June 2, 1961, to Bruno and Anita (Dominguez) Gonzales; Irma grew up in Plains, TX. She spent most of her life spreading love and kindness to those she met. Irma was known for making others' lives better; she was kind, caring and a Mom to everyone. Her smile was infectious, and her ability to make others laugh was what drew them to her. One could not help but be attracted to her positive spirit.

Irma grew up in Plains and was known for her strong work ethic and dedication to everything she did.  She was a USPS Postal Worker for eighteen years and she poured her life into loving her family and community. She had a strong personality and an independent spirit and she leaves behind beautiful memories that will forever remain engraved in our hearts.

She loved watching Mash, Golden Girls and Everybody Loves Raymond, but spending time with her grandkids was her favorite hobby. They were the pride of her life. She was also famous for making tortillas for everyone.

Irma is survived by her sons John Wagnon and Jaxon Wilhelm; daughter Chelsi Bauer and her husband Chad; sisters Diana Flores, Gloria Covarrubias, Debbie Longoria and her husband Larry. Her three amazing grandchildren Liam, Ellie and Peyton will miss their MawMaw terribly.  She also leaves behind her beloved dog, Woofie.

She is preceded in death by her parents Bruno and Anita (Dominguez) Gonzales; brother-in-law Cody Flores; and brother-in-law Michael Covarrubias.

We've lost an incredible mother and friend, but her kindness and loving spirit will remain a beacon in our hearts forever.
