Marilyn Rosemond Wilson (nee Mank) passed away June 20, 2019, after a long battle with Metastatic Breast Cancer. She was 84.
Marilyn was born in Belleville, Illinois on March 15, 1935, and grew into the beautiful woman who met and married Francis (Frank) Wilson.She traveled with him throughout his career in the Air Force, returning with him to his home in West Virginia in 1975. There they raised their six children andbecame active members of Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church. Marilyn served as one of the first Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion at Ss. Peter and Paul, and she truly loved visiting her church family members who were unable to attend Holy Mass.
