Shirley Wilson, 78

Formerly of Berea — Mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, aunt, wife, friend, lover of life and Christian. These are the words that best describe Shirley Rose Wilson who passed from this world on Thursday, November 15, 2012.

Also, thank you to the staff and patients at Richmond Place for their loving care and friendship these past few years.
