Linda Jane Wilson peacefully passed in her sleep, surrounded by her immediate family, in the arms of Bennie, her loving husband of 55 years in the late evening hours of Thursday, March 20,2020.
Linda battled cancer off and on for the past 11 years and it just recently returned. However, this is not about how she died, but how she lived. And Oh did she live!
Linda, at 4’ 10 and ¾" was a force to be reckoned with. She was fiercely loyal to her family and friends and was not shy about letting you know how she felt. Linda was exceptionally thoughtful and took the time to cultivate and care for her relationships. It was common practice for Linda to drop a Hallmark card in the mail just to let someone know she was thinking about them. Linda went by many different names throughout her life; Lynn, Lil’ Bit, Aunt Lynn, Mom but her favorite name was Nana.
Linda was born on February 16, 1947 in Highland Park, MI to Vaughn and Dolores Bradley. Linda grew up in Clawson, MI. On July 25, 1964 she married Bennie (Bill) Wilson at the Justice of the Peace in Troy Michigan. Their marriage was witnessed by their friends Peggy and Johnny who set them up in the first place. Linda and Bennie spent the early years of their marriage living in Royal Oak. They would eventually settle and make their home in Troy, MI. It was in Troy where Linda and Bennie raised their three children; Kathleen, David and Brad. Linda was not only the mom to her own three children, but many of the neighborhood kids, and several of her nieces and nephews, considered Linda a 2nd mom.
Linda worked at Royal Oak Beaumont for a number of years as well as working at several Jewlers. She was always very particular and took pride in her appearance. She was also an incredible home maker and kept her house spotless. Linda was an excellent cook and enjoyed preparing multi-course dinners for her family and friends.
Linda and Bennie were avid travelers. While their kids were growing up Linda planned and orchestrated many family vacations and camping adventures. (Which have given her family years of entertainment through the retelling of stories of misadventure and shenanigans) Once Linda and Bennie became empty-nesters they had many adventures in their fifth-wheel from Florida to Suttons Bay. Linda enjoyed going on cruises and spending time at their time-share in Aruba.
In 2008 Linda and Bennie retired to their lake cottage in Harrison, MI. Linda enjoyed spending her mornings in her sunroom, overlooking the lake that she loved, watching her birds while reading the morning paper and countless novels. She had a genuine love of reading. Linda and Bennie adopted a snow bird lifestyle and split their time between their home in Harrison and their place in Florida. Linda made many new friends in Florida and enjoyed their companionship.
2008 happened to be the year she (Finally) became a grandma. She absolutely adored her grandchildren, Erin and Boyd, and loved being their Nana. They spent many treasured times together. Linda was more than happy to brag about her grandkids and show off their pictures.
Linda is survived by her husband Bennie “Bill” Wilson, her daughter Kathleen Wilson, son Brad (Tracy) Wilson, grandchildren Erin and Boyd Wilson, her dearest friend Mary Ellen and husband Troy, sister Peggy Farris, sisters and brothers – in-law OD and Barb Wilson, Dorthy Barnett, Ken and Linda Wilson, Linda and Kyle Viers, Bronda Nowak, many nieces and nephews including great and great-great.
She was preceded in death by her son David.
A celebration of life will be held at a yet to be determined date. To share an online memory or condolence with Linda’s family, please visit Arrangements for Mrs. Wilson are entrusted with Stocking Funeral Home, Harrison (989)539-7810.

Linda was always a joy to be around. The girls and I enjoyed our years of visiting during the summer at the cabin! We will forever cherish our time together. She was like a grandmother to us and always there to listen and talk. Always had a smile on her face! She will deeply be missed. Thoughts and prayers to Bill and the rest of the family!
