What astonishes me is that my guess based on nothing but census browsing was absolutely correct.
I wouldn't have even known she existed except that a cousin of hers died without heirs and without a will so a document was produced that listed all of her potential heirs - in this case her first cousins. Wilda was listed in the document as the deceased daughter of William V. I'd known from his 1930 census record he'd been divorced, but knew nothing of and offspring.
Here are her census records that I gathered while in guess-mode:
At the time of her death she was divorced from her husband so his name was not given. The informant was her mother Edna May Berry - who said her maiden name was Berry, which was also her name from her second marriage. So that may not be correct.State KansasCounty WyandotteDelaware TownshipEdwardsville City of 3rd Class Beginning Line 1s.d. 2, e.d. 152, Sheet No. 16A/34A4th February 1920 by Calvin L.

Oh! I forgot to mention how I found her - I went to the Missouri Death Records online and looked at each of the death records for anyone named Wilda. Such a long shot! Glad I didn't have to do the whole 100, also glad I didn't start at the end of the alphabet!
And such a genealogy junkie thing to do...nice when it works out.
