Wilma Faile paints tribute to husband Ronnie, Kershaw farm boy, partner in skunk evictions

By Brian Melton

It’s Wednesday morning, and I’m motoring through the countryside north of Kershaw, looking for Wilma Faile. I have her address but no phone number.
Tuesday afternoon, I received a letter from her, saying her husband of a quarter century, Ronnie, had passed away unexpectedly in February. Ronnie was the co-star of two of the best letters to the editor I’ve ever published, written by Wilma in 2015 and ’16.
“I hope you remember me,” the new letter starts. “I’m the Skunk Lady.”
