Flora "Lou" Louise Wilson

Au Gres, Michigan
May 11, 1932 - August 16, 2020

Obituary Notice

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.

Memorial service (party) to be planned at a later date.

My Dear Aunt Lou,

There is a void in my heart today; the kind of void one feels when someone so very special is taken away. Our family has had its share of tremendous loss in recent years, and your passing has cut me deeply. You were always so special to me, Aunt Lou- so loving and caring. You had a laugh that was absolutely contagious, and a compassion for others that was legendary to all who knew you. I shall miss our talks, our laughs...

Give mom, dad, and grandma a huge hug for me and be vigilant, for the day will come when we can once again share those laughs together. I love you. ❤

I sure loved Lou ❣. We were best of friends way back in Bay City and then on Pt AuGres road for 60 years. I loved going places with you and our family, even the time rolled the old 9 passenger station wagon on State road. Helping you keep to George's grocery budget at the IGA and putting things aside from your cart while I was on the checkout❣Lol. All the years we gathered at each other's homes to celebrate special occasions and 'straightening out your freezer with you❤. We all loved your little sayings like "My Cow " and
"How's them babies hun?".So fortunate to have been your friend and neighbor for so many years❣. Love and miss you Loulabelle, Love Betty
— Betty Parker
I will always remember my 70th birthday party. You and Betty Parker started telling stories of your younger days. We laugh so hard. So much fun! Love you, Lou. R.I.P.

George, Mike and Linda -- sorry to hear of Lou's passing. Her forever smile is a memory that stands out in my 30 years of knowing Lou. Even the past several years when her mobility was a struggle, she still had that smile to greet you. My amazement of her concentration ability goes back years when I used to go to Bingo with June Pockrandt ... no matter how early we got there, Lou was already there (supposedly to pick out the best cards!) and I have no idea how she kept track of them all! She was delightful and a blessing to all who knew her. Peace to you all as she now has the peace that life deserves. God be with you in your loss. Sending love and hugs.
