Evelyn Naomi Wilson

Dec 23, 1923 - Feb 9, 2013


Evelyn “Lynn” Naomi Wilson passed away peacefully at home on February 9, 2013 at the age of 89. With many family members at her side she went to be with her LORD, Jesus Christ. Lynn was born on December 23, 1923 in Fresno, CA to James Kolveres and Frances Lara. She was married to Earl Wilson for 43 years, who preceded her in death in 1991. Lynn is survived by her three children, Terry (Dawn) of Folsom, CA, Cindy (Jim) of Los Gatos, CA and Tim (Darsi) of Manteca, CA, grandchildren (Sara, Danielle, Ashley, Andy, Tim Jr., Mario, Julian and Elliott) and great granddaughter Micaela. Lynn lived most of her life in Sacramento, raising her children and volunteering in their school and extracurricular activities (Little League, Campfire Girls, room mother, PTA), as well as volunteering in her church’s hospitality and Teen Challenge Ministries. Her greatest joys were seeing her family grow and spending time with her children, grandchildren and relatives at holidays, family events and vacations. She had many friends throughout her life and loved them dearly, always ready to lend a listening ear, or offer them something to eat. She loved to cook and bake, enjoyed gardening and doing crafts. Lynn also loved to travel and was always ready to hop in the car and go. She loved the outdoors, especially the sound of “babbling brooks”. Central to Lynn’s life was her faith, which she shared openly. She will be dearly missed by family and friends. In lieu of gifts or flowers, the family asks that contributions be made on Lynn’s behalf to the hospice organization of your choice, or a charity that would honor her memory.

    Dear Lyn, I will always remember your sense of humor. I will miss your youthful spirit and ready smile. You were a part of my grandmother’s legacy, a reminder that those we love live on, in the twinkle in an eye, or a familiar quirk, as well as in our hearts. My condolences for each member of your lovely family. With love Robin

    Lynn, What amazing lady you were, full of life, with a lot of spunk,tons of love to give. you were the life of the party at Campus Commons, It did not take the residents long to get to know you. You were known for the “BEST HOMEMADE COOK” at Campus, All the residents knew when you were cooking with all the yummy aroma traveling down the hallways, I could hear the residents say ” Lynn is cooking again, with a huge smile on their face and a bowl in their hands heading down to your apartment. You loved to share. You always had something kind to say to me. But not when you were playing cards with me, you had no problem kicking my butt at cards. You were a lot of fun. I am sure you will be cooking up a great dinner now and then for the Lords supper. “BON APPETIT” Lynn!! you will be missed. Love, Juanita

  • Kitty Thomson says:

    My fondest memory of Sara’s Nana was the first time I met her at Sara’s wedding shower in Modesto. She was full of life, and love, and the joy of being with all the girls celebrating Sara’s happiness. For me, it made the picture complete, as we began a new chapter joining our families together with her prayers and blessing! We have all been blessed by her amazing humor and sweet love. We are praying for God’s comfort and blessing to carry you through this day. Our love and prayers are with you, Kitty and Dick

  • Rod Lara says:

    Lynn, I will always remember the great times we had together. You taught me how to cook, bake, play many different card games, and how to treat everyone with kindness and respect. You had the biggest heart of anyone I have ever known. You brought a smile to everyone you touched and especially to me. We had some great “road trips” and our monthly restaurant reviews. You welcomed me into your home and treated me like a your own son. You will always be in my heart, Love you Rodney

  • Eric Carson says:

    Cindy, it’s a very sad day to lose that special person who was always there for us when we needed her! She is now off on a new journey and will be watching you. I will have a moment of silence/prayer tomorrow since I can’t be with you guys. Eric Carson

  • Cindy Barnes says:

    Mom~ I know you are right where you want to be right now, In heaven with your LORD. You had a heart of gold and your love for people, and especially your family, will remain a constant source of comfort for us. I know I will see you again. Love you.

  • Julie Perez says:

    Lynn: Thank you for the good times we got to share with you. Your bright smile always brought joy to all of those around you. You will be missed. My condolences to Lynn’s family. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to get to know Lynn who will always hold a special place in our hearts.

  • Tim Wilson Jr says:

    Nana, i will always remember your wise words and how you always had faith in me. Your favorite story to tell people was that time you visited Manteca, and you pretended we were lost, just to see if i remembered how to get home. I’ll never forget it. I love you so much Nana, and i will see you again. p.s. When I have a daughter, her middle name will be Lynn, in honor of you.

  • Tim Wilson says:

    Mom, I know you are with Jesus at this time. I love you and miss you! Auf Wiedersehen! or “until we see (each other)again” !
