Susie Pearl Wilson was born in Sardis, Mississippi on April 21, 1935 to Leroy Spikener and Ida Black. She relocated to Southern California in her teenage years and remained here until her passing. Susie graduated from Fremont High School; and at the age of 18 married Barney M. Harvey Jr and together, had two sons, Tony and Michael. They later divorced, but continued as great friends. Years later she remarried, Willie Wilson and eventually relocated to Pomona, California where they soon divorced and parted ways. Her faith in God was an integral part of her life. As a young adult, she attended Metropolitan Baptist Church where she sang in the choir and served on the usher board for over 20 years. She lived her commitment of faith until she was called home. Her career path in the banking, loan services and real estate ultimately began when she worked for Family Savings and Loan in Watts as a teller/clerk. She worked for Pomona First Federal as a Loan Service Representative before moving into real estate full-time. She retired from the industry after 40 years of service. Susie was a gifted real estate agent; an arena where she most excelled. She was an active member of the High Desert Association of Realtors/Victor Valley Association of Realtors and worked as an agent for a variety of offices; Caldwell Banker, Century 21- King, Meridian Capital Real Estate and Home Quest Realty. Among her many passions was traveling. Sue traveled and cruised with a group of tight-knitted friends to places such as Australia, Alaska, (where she panned for gold) New Orleans, Mexico, (where she parasailed and rode horseback) Barbados, Cayman Island and Europe to name a few. She was dedicated to serving the community and reaching out to those in need. She volunteered as a member of the Victor Valley Friends of the Library and was a board member for A Better Way Domestic Violence Shelter in Victorville. She was a sales woman for Princess House, Park Lane Jewelry and her latest interest was selling do Terra Essential Oils. Sue was a nurturing gardener, who also loved to fish, and cook. She had the ability to cook any and everything but, her claim to fame was Susie’s world-renowned spicy salsa and her delectable macaroni and cheese. She loved dogs, hats, angels and clowns. She lived life boldly and out loud. Her zest for fun and adventure has been passed down to her family and friends.

Our condolences to you on the loss of your Mom. We knew your mom for over 30 years. She was a good friend of our Mom, Daisy McZeal and our Aunt Betty Brown. Your Mom helped us buy our first home in Pomona, CA. And, 30 years later, she helped us buy our forever home in Apple Valley, CA. Your Mom was a wonderful woman and will be missed. Take care now.
