Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Wilson  was born on March 14, 1915, in Rantoul, Illinois.  She was the daughter of John Dillon and Mary Alice Alexander, and she was an only child. She also held the distinction of   being the first black child born in Rantoul.

             On July 13, 1946, Sarah Elizabeth was united in Holy    Matrimony to Walker Wilson.  Together they shared over forty years of marital happiness, up until his death on June 1, 1988.

She had two loving and devoted daughters, Norma Jean Harris and   Barbara Jean Jones; four grandchildren, Norman C. Allen (deceased), Alan Dancy, April Baldwin (Kevin) and John F. Allen (Mia), and three great-grandchildren, Chelcee Shields, Kevin Baldwin, Jr. and Jayden Allen.

        Sarah was employed as a Nurse’s Aide at the former William N. Wishard Memorial Hospital for many years, following in the footsteps of her mother, who was a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) at the same hospital.

She was a caring and faithful person, dearly devoted to her family, friends and strangers alike. She would always be considerate and helpful to   anyone she could.

Sarah was also an animal lover, especially dogs. She adopted two dogs named, Mitzi and Frisky, for whom she deeply cared.  She loved to read, watch television and spend time with her family and friends. She also enjoyed attending social events, especially ones where she could dance, which she loved to do.


Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Wilson  entered eternal rest on April 25, 2020, at the age of one hundred and five years, one month and twelve days.
