Born on August 25, 1932 in Worcester, she graduated from Our Lady Help of Christians, Newton, with the class of 1951 (Alumni Committee Member). Many years ago, Mrs. Wilson worked at the Newton City Hall and the Gamewell Company of Newton Upper Falls. She spent most of her career caring for children and was a teacher at the Sudbury Small World Childcare Center for several years.

She was devoted to her faith and her community. Mrs. Wilson was a sixty-year communicant of Our Lady of Fatima Parish and taught religious education for 27 years at the church.

Mrs. Wilson was a member of the Marian Community (Betania II); also Sudbury Fish Coordinator for many years and member of the Christ Alive Bible Study. Upon her retirement, she took great joy in caring for her grandchildren as well as the children of Eric and Elizabeth Shealy of Sudbury, all of whom she loved dearly.
