Frances Watkins Wilson, 85, passed away Thursday, December 9, 2021, at Riverside hospital by her husband's bedside. She was born October 27, 1936 and attended Poquoson High School before marrying the love of her life. She was preceded in death by her parents, Elias and Madelene Watkins, a brother, James Watkins, and a grandson, Michael Cole.
She is survived by her loving husband Wilton "Dubbie" Wilson; brother, Ronald Watkins; daughters Marsha Forrest (husband Robbie), Beth Smith (husband Chris), Pam Henley (husband Shawn), and Vicki Landrum (husband Elmer); eight grandchildren - Karen Forrest, Sterling Forrest (wife Courtney), Maggie Tsosi (husband Pernell), James Forrest (wife Genna), Andrea Stewart, Morgan Henley, Cameron Landrum (Tabitha), and Trevor Landrum, and six great grandchildren whom she adored.
Frances was an active member of Tabernacle United Methodist Church for most of her adult life and retired from her position as church secretary after over 30 years of service. She remained active in the church until her failing health prevented it.
She loved to travel and make memories with her husband and always looked forward to family gatherings where they could share those memories with their four girls and spend time with the little ones.
The family will receive friends 2-4 p.m. Thursday, December 16th at Claytor Rollins Funeral Home. A funeral service will be held 2 p.m. Monday at Tabernacle United Methodist Church with the burial immediately following in Parklawn Memorial Park.
