Sweet Beginnings ~ Proverbs 22:6
Deborah Ann made her entrance into the world on September 25th, 1950 in Hamilton, Ohio. Deborah often spoke very fondly of her early childhood, being raised in a house full of love with her mother, Lula Mae, and grandmother, the late Queen Trotter Sneed. In 1958, her mother married the late Nelson Kimble Sr., and together with young Deborah, built a family unit with even more love that set the spiritual foundational path that Deborah kept throughout her entire lifetime. She accepted Christ during her youth, and began her faithful service for the Lord at Israel Baptist Church in Hamilton, Ohio.
Love & Marriage & Family ~ Matthew 19:5-6
In addition to her service during her youth at Israel Baptist Church, Deborah attended Hamilton City Schools and was an active member of the track team. It was during junior high, that she met a charming young man named Ronald Wilson, who would turn out to be the love of her life. On December 21st, 1968, at just the tender ages of 18 and 19 years old, Deborah and Ronald became united in holy matrimony. Shortly after their union, Deborah and Ronald became parents. Deborah affectionately referred to her children as “The Fab 4”: Ronald Jr. (Ronnie), Darnell, Anissa and Shannan. She was an outstanding wife and mother, and she created an impeccable home environment that she and her family thrived in, filled with lots of happiness, laughter and football on Sundays. Deborah’s unwavering, unconditional support for her children allowed each of them to excel in their own respective careers and personal lives. She was extremely proud of all of her children and never hesitated to express her sentiments to them.
A Woman of Virtue ~ Proverbs 31:10-31
Deborah retired and relocated to Greensboro, North Carolina after spending over 20 years working in the food service industry. Her retirement years allowed her to spend more time with family, which now included grandchildren, and serve the Lord with her church home, Destiny Christian Center in Greensboro, North Carolina. Deborah was a source of inspiration to so many. She kept a word of encouragement at all times and would unleash it immediately to anyone and everyone that needed it, and it did not matter if the person was well known to her or a total stranger. Deborah was also the epitome of beauty, elegance, style, grace and humor. Not only to know her is to love her, but to know her and call her wife, mom, nana, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin or friend is an absolute honor. Mrs. Deborah Ann Wilson completed her earthly assignment and took her assigned rest on September 4th, 2023. The legacy she leaves behind is extraordinary.
Those that will cherish Deborah for eternity: her dear devoted husband and best friend of nearly 60 years, Mr. Ronald E. Wilson Sr., who describes their union as, “the best love story that could have ever been written.”; her adoring children: Darnell Maurice, Anissa Cheron and Shannan Faith; 13 beautiful grandchildren: Jaida, Ashley, Jazmine, Alexis, Micah, Neema, Amatullah, Abdul, Sumayyah, Shanisse, Ryan, Myles and Ajamu. 2 great-grandchildren: Aniyah and Aubrey; her amazing mother, Mrs. Lula M. Kimble; her siblings: Rita (Millard), Teresa, Nelson Jr., Gregory, Vincent and Christopher (Loriel); her special in-laws: O’Neta (John), Robert (Dianne), Anna(Rodney), and Favorite; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Greeting Deborah at the gates of heaven with a warm embrace is her first born son, Captain Ronald E. Wilson Jr.
To God Be the Glory!
