Flora "Lou" Louise Wilson
Au Gres, Michigan
May 11, 1932 - August 16, 2020
On August 15, 2020 at 7:25pm our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, Flora Louise “Lou” Wilson, went home to be with the Lord. She is surely having a grand party with A LOT of loved ones. If you knew Lou you knew she was not shy in the least. As a matter of fact, she once took a job at the local grocery store solely because she loved to socialize. That job was not long lived because, well, she did more socializing than work. She was once suspected of being the town drunk. You see, word spread that Lou was to be found at the old Gene’s Dry Dock before noon on a regular basis. It turns out she was just stopping in to visit the bartender and have a cup of coffee before they opened. She lived to be 88 years young and in those years on Earth she enjoyed many things like: parties, parties and more parties. She loved to cook and entertain for family - and the family she chose! You see, she didn’t really have “friends” because if you were a friend then you were (as she’d say) “just like family.” She also enjoyed concerts, traveling, attending church, bowling, bingo and we cannot forget her soap operas!! She loved to watch that drama unfold and she was never one to miss a single episode - ever! She always had to have her hugs and kisses when you saw her and, of course, when you left. We guarantee you that she is saying “give ‘em all my love” right now. This is a tiny glimpse of how wonderful Lou was for those of you that didn’t know her. And for those of you who did, I’m sure you also have a massive amount of great memories of your own.
Lou is survived by her loving husband, George Stewart Wilson; children, Mike Wilson and Linda Sorenson; grandchildren, Shaun (Jessica) Sorenson and Leasha Sorenson, and Bryan, Carl and Dennis Wilson; great-grandchildren, Bradley, Layla and Avery Sorenson, Keegan and Alanis Gordin, Arrianna Morrow, and Paige and Brooks Wilson; siblings, Lula Lee, Phillis (Douglas) Applegate, Edward (Nancy) Isbell; in-laws, Tom Arndt, and Shelby Isbell; numerous nieces, nephews, granddog Jack, extended family and friends too many to list.
Lou was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas L. and Mary Ellen (Phillips) Isbell, granddaughter, Wendy Morrow; siblings, Becky, Mary "Virginia" and Pearl Isbell, Betty Tucker, Peggy Arndt, Shirley Underwood, Myrel, Rubin, Charles, Alvin, Alvis and Tommy Isbell. Lou’s beloved dog Emma.
