Emily May Wilson

The seventh child of Milton Marion Hall and Florence (Benning) Hall, she was born in Montoursville, Pa., on Dec. 9, 1910.

Emily graduated from Montoursville High School in 1928, married Gordon Bertine Wilson on Jan. 24, 1929, and they had one daughter, Nancy Mae Wilson-Yaudes. That daughter, along with two grandchildren, Chester Gordon (Sharon) Yaudes of Largo, Fla., and Cynthia Gwynne Yaudes of Bloomington, Ind.; one grandchild, Michael (Jessica) Yaudes of Largo, Fla.; one great-great-grandchild, Bryson Yaudes of Largo, Fla.; and a host of nieces and nephews; survive her. Emily was a lifelong member of First Friends Church (which her father helped establish during the early 20th century), and she found one of her greatest joys in that spirituality.

Arrangements will be per Emily’s wishes and at the convenience of the family.

They suggest that memorial contributions be made to Valley View Nursing Center, 2140 Warrensville Road, Montoursville, PA 17754, or to the charity of your choice.
