Lois Geraldine "Gerri" Wilson

May 24, 1933 — May 19, 2015

Gerri Wilson, 81, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, May 19, 2015 at Regency Hospital in Macon surrounded by family and friends.

Gerri was born on May 24, 1933 in Camden, South Carolina. She married her husband, Heber, on July 14, 1950 and they lived in South Carolina, Florida, North Carolina, Okinawa, Japan, North Dakota, and the Philippines. They finally settled in Warner Robins in 1980 after traveling the world during his Air Force career. Gerri was predeceased by her parents, Reverend W.C. Player and Desaree Sharpe Player; siblings, Eunice Wall, Evelyn Brown, Joe Player, Bessie Jeffcoat, David Player, and Ester Player; and her husband of 58 ½ years, CMSgt. Heber Wilson, USAF (Ret).

Gerri's memory will forever be treasured by her daughter and son-in-law, Sharon and Martin Kaplan; son, Lt. Col. Jeffrey Wilson, USAF (Ret.); granddaughters, Elizabeth and Claire Wilson; sister and brother-in-law, Willie Nell and Ron Wilkerson; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Gerri was a loving Mother, G'Mama and dear friend to so many. She loved and treasured her family and friends and will be missed by all, but we know she is in the loving arms of her Lord.
Gerri's family thanks all of her friends for being with her these last few weeks. We could not have made it through this without them.
