Mary Wilson peacefully transitioned on February 1, 2021 at Summit Rehabilitation Center. With everlasting gratitude for her life, and a loyalty to her family and friends, with a smile. Her laugh, and compassion gave her willingness to do anything for anybody.
Mary M. Wilson was the daughter of John and Cornelia Johnson. She was born on July 25, 1925 in Florence, Alabama. She went home to be with her parents and the rest that have passed on. She left Florence, Alabama to move to Chicago, Illinois, where she stayed. She met the love of her life, Oscar L. Wilson. They were married July 28, 1987 until his passing.
