Charlotte L. (Gilbertson) Wilson
Charlotte L. Wilson (nee Gilbertson), age 97, of Hilton Head Island, SC peacefully joined our Lord on February 22, 2009 after a brief illness.

Born February 17, 1912 in Blair, NE she enjoyed her early years with family in a rural setting. She had many fond memories of those times with family and friends. After meeting the love of her life, Waldo, she married and moved to Joliet and raised her family. She was an accomplished musician and artist. She loved the piano and shared her love of music with Waldo. She also loved to paint and sent many friends and family handmade greeting cards. Despite her small size, Charlotte possessed a heart full of life. Her smile was bright enough to light up any room. She was happiest and most "contented" when simply spending time with family and friends. She taught grade school in Omaha and Joliet for 40 years, retiring in 1976.

Preceded in death by her husband, Waldo (1996), her parents, two brothers, and a sister. She is survived by Leigh (Kris) of Thailand, Warren (Karen) of Hilton Head, SC, and Kent (Ruth) of Forestville, CA.

Visitation for Charlotte will be held on Thursday, February 26, 2009 from 9am-10am with a service to follow at the funeral home with Rev. Roy Backus, First Presbyterian Church, Morris officiating. Interment at Woodlawn Memorial Park.

Memorials in her memory to Hospice Care of America, 460 William Hilton Parkway, Suite F1, Hilton Head Island, SC 29926. (843)785-5901 would be appreciated.
