  • Dearest Wilson family,
    You lost your wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother but we here at Willow Valley Retirement Community lost a very precious, dear friend. She was a teacher, a mentor, and a Christ role model of how to truly love others. She was our earthly Shepherdess for a group of women that faithfully met every Wednesday afternoon for fellowship, scripture reading and prayer. We will always miss her but we will carry on remembering how she loved us and we loved her. She magically seemed to be able to bring out the best in each of us with her positive attitude and affirmation. We are making a sizable donation to Heifer International in memory of our beloved leader, Ann Wilson!

  • It is never easy to say goodbye to a loved one, especially a mother and wife. My mom Isabel Sturgis when to school with Ann and spoke about her over life. We are so privileged to have been blessed with wonderful humans like Ann and eternity isn’t long enough to have them in our lives.

  • My Condolences and Comforting Prayers to Family and Friends 🙏 Ann was truly a blessing to so many sharing her Godly Gifts.

  • What a wonderful life she lived! I know our Mommom Short and my Mommom Iva are happy to meet her again, as is the rest of her heavenly family. Praying for peace and comfort for you all. Hoping the happy memories bring a smile to your faces.

  • Wishing comfort and strength to Bob, and to all of Ann’s family. May it help you to know others care and send wishes to you for many happy memories to comfort you during your time of grief. As a 1951 High School Classmate, It was always a pleasure when she and Bob were able to attend our reunions and also made arrangements to visit some of our monthly lunches in between. May you find comfort in knowing so many care.

  • Ann got her wings – hugs to you all during this difficult time- keeping you in prayers and positive energy- thinking about you ❤️❤️🙏

  • I am so very sorry for your loss. The world lost one of the good ones this week . My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
