On Friday August 17, 2018, Gail Wilson, passed away peacefully at the age of 67. She was born in San Angelo to parents R.O. “Bob” and Nadine (Hilburn) Wilson on July 18, 1951. She graduated from Central High School in 1969 and went to college in Austin, followed by several semesters at Angelo State University. She spent time living in Santa Fe NM and Austin. In 1979, she moved to the countryside just north of Georgetown TX which became her home for nearly 40 years. She had a unique owner built house that was a cozy and loving home filled with love and creativity. Her mother, Nadine, passed down her love of crafting to Gail, who enjoyed all things creative. She loved spending time designing and beading jewelry and sun catchers. Gail was a seamstress by trade for many years and was always drawn to her love of fabric and sewing. Whether she was working in her garden, clearing paths in the woods, enjoying a good book, or crafting inside on hot summer days, Gail was always busy making things beautiful. She worked as a kitchen designer for Home Depot and she loved helping customers make their dream kitchens become a reality. She is survived by her daughter, Deja Elder (Tony Leftwich) and grand-dogs Sam and Roxy of Georgetown TX. Deja inherited her mother’s love of creativity and they would spend hours together working on various types of projects. They enjoyed taking trips together including numerous road trips from Texas to Yellowstone National Park, where Deja worked for 9 years. They would visit places like Palo Duro Canyon, Chaco Canyon, Mesa Verde National Park, and Garden of the Gods, just to name a few. One of their favorite trips was spent in Scotland touring castles in the highlands, finding hidden tourist spots in Edinburgh, and roaming art museums and Abbey Road in London. Gail also enjoyed spending time with family and friends, and she loved to laugh. She was preceded in death by her father, Bob, mother, Nadine, and brother, Bobby. She is survived by her 2 brothers Johnny (Sandra) Wilson, Rodger (Molly) Wilson, and Bobby’s widow, Linda Wilson, all of San Angelo. She is also survived by nieces Kerry Ann Ramirez, Chelsea Ashton, Chesney Watson, Tina Martinez, Kimberly (Chris) Martinez all of San Angelo, Dena Thompson of New Braunfels, and nephew Chisom (Jennifer) Wilson of Albuquerque NM, as well as many great (and great-great) nieces and nephews. Gail had a beautiful spirit that touched so many lives and she will be dearly missed. There will be a Celebration of Life held at her home in Georgetown TX on September 8th. Memorial contributions may be made to The Mary Maguire Foundation or the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter.
