Kay Diane Wilson

Jesus put His arms around Kay Diane Wilson and welcomed her home on January 20, 2024 at the age of 88. She was born to Charles and Katherine Kingsbury on September 23, 1935. Kay was the first child and grandchild so was doted on by all. As a child she was a part of the neighborhood gang and was still in touch with one of those original friends in her later years. Kay’s Dad built his dream cabin camp in Grove, OK. She spent time there swimming, fishing, helping her Mom and Dad with the camp and practicing the flute (her new love).   After her dad was called back into the Army in 1951 the family moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado where she played 1st chair flute in the high school band and orchestra. Kay attended CU with majors ranging from Chemistry to Medical Technology. She moved on to banking, working on the early computers. At retirement she was a Senior Systems Analyst at General Dynamics in Pomona, CA. 

Kay married Stewart Wilson in 1964 and moved to California. Stew and Kay had 2 sons, Erik Charles and Todd Jason. She loved her boys and hated leaving them to work, however she always made sure there were cookies for a class project and cupcakes for birthdays. She was a warm caress and had a gentle smile. The family settled in Tustin where Kay attended Calvary Church and played in the church orchestra for 30 + years. The boys attended the Calvary Christian School. After 32 years of marriage, Kay and Stew divorced and Kay moved to Corona, CA. 

Later, a good (God) offer on her home caused her to move to Colorado with her sister, Judy, Ron and Michael. She adjusted to the quiet life on the ranch and attended church at Gateway Baptist Church. She happily sewed for missions, crocheted with the Prayer Shawl Ministry, read, attended Bible study and, of course, played her flute. Necessity required a move to Chelsea, OK where Kay attended First Baptist Church Chelsea. Church activities filled her life with potlucks, hugs, missions work, love and fellowship. When Ron suddenly died it became necessary for “the Sisters” to move closer to Judy’s son, Michael and wife Maggie. They attended First Baptist Church Mineral Wells and were embraced with so much love and warmth. When Judy’s grandbaby, Lannon, was born, Kay was honored to become Aunt Gramma. She was so thrilled when he would come to her, unannounced, and throw his little arms around her legs. She adjusted admirably to her failing health and moved forward to her final breath. Judy and Michael were with her when she met Jesus.  Kay will be missed by all that knew and experienced her quiet warmth and heartfelt smile. 

For me to live is Christ and to die is gain.  Philippians 1:21
