OCTOBER 19, 1915-OCTOBER 13, 2008

Noreen Wilson, longtime resident of Green River, Utah passed peacefully near family in Plano, Texas Monday Oct. 13, 2008. Born Noreen Limbaugh, Oct. 19, 1915 in Bernie, Mo. she relocated to Phoenix, Ariz. in 1930 and graduated from Arizona State Teachers College (now Arizona State University) in Elementary Education.

She met Francis M. Wilson during World War II and they married Dec. 15, 1945 in Phoenix then relocated to Green River. She, (for 22 years) as a second grade teacher and he as a local farmer lived an active community life and raised three sons, Dennis with wife Peggy of Plano, Texas, Craig with wife Jean of Las Vegas, Nev. and Donald with wife Amanda of Salt Lake City, Utah. Her husband preceded her in death in 1967. 

Noreen, affectionately known as Grandma by her family, was very active in Eastern Star, The American Legion Auxiliary, and the Green River Bible Church. She enjoyed playing card games and most especially enjoyed playing Scrabble. She was the core of our family and was always there for the good and bad times and in the end possessed the wisdom to help make even the hardest issues easier to overcome.

She lived her faith and passed on her core values of  treating all people with dignity and respect, not based on their status but on the quality of their character. Her motto as a teacher was "there is no bad child".

She will be dearly missed by those who survive her. Three sons, seven grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and many friends and former students. Her favorite scripture was John 14:27 and her deep Christian faith guided her through life; a life that was positive, productive and one that brought happiness to those who truly knew her. She now rejoins her husband and one true love of her life; may God bless and keep her forever.

Funeral Services were conducted at 1 p.m. Saturday Oct. 18 with a graveside service immediately following at the Elgin Cemetery.

The family requests no flowers but if anyone would like to make a remembrance donation, please do so in Noreen's name to the Green River Bible Church.
