Mrs. Wilson was a fine English teacher who held her students to high academic standards that prepared us for college. As a person she was an example for us of exemplary character and gracious dignity. We were lucky to have her in our lives at that time of approaching maturity. I join others in honoring Mrs. Wilson and sending sympathy to her loved ones.

Mary & Waylon,

Sorry to read about the death of your mom. She was a wonderful person as well as a great teacher. Glad I was able to have her my senior year -- what I learned help me years later.

Mrs. Wilson was the finest English teacher that I have ever had. She was also one of the best educators that I have ever know. I loved her class and respected her for her no nonsense style. She inspired her students to do their best and exhorted them to never settle for less than excellence. She will be missed by all whose lives she touched.

I remember Mrs. Wilson. She genuinely cared about her profession, and her relationship to her students. My sincere condolences to the family.

I had the pleasure of having Mrs. Wilson as an English teacher at St. Andrew's in 1976. She was a great teacher and was genuinely interested in her students. I recently came across a photo of her and Mr. Wilson as they chaperoned our senior trip/cruise. She was quite a lady! May your family find solace in the legacy she has left behind. Her students will always remember her fondly!

I often think of Mrs. Wilson and the other teachers at St. Andrews who were incredible teachers who inspired their students to achieve to their fullest. Mrs. Wilson was exceptional. I have always felt fortunate to have had her.
My heartfelt condolences go to Waylon and Mary.

Mrs. Wilson was one of the finest and most dedicated educators I have ever met. She inspired me (and I would venture to say all of her students)to excel. She will be remembered and missed by all of us whose lives she touched.

Mrs. Wilson was an amazing person. I always looked forward to attending her class at St. Andrews. She had a true passion for English and for her students. Her kindness will always be remembered. I ran into her several times after I graduated, and she always seemed to remember me. What a blessing she was to me and so many. God bless, the Wilson family.

What a flood of memories. Mrs. Wilson inspired me to become an English major in college (and she knew it). My thoughts and prayers for Waylon and Susie, and the great extended family of St. Andrews
