Aug. 10, 1965 — Dec. 1, 2018
Dorothy “Cis” Christine Wilson, born Aug. 10, 1965, to David and Dorothy (Peterson) Wilson in Akron, Ohio. She passed away on Dec. 1, 2018, at 53 years old, in Longview, Washington. She lived in Vancouver, Washington but spent much of her time in Astoria, Oregon where she grew up. Cis was known as a homemaker, friend, mom, sister, aunt and grandma; her grandchildren call her Memaw.
Her favorite things to do included spending time with her grandchildren, playing video poker and watching Hallmark movies. She cared for her nieces and nephews as if they were her own children, and she always made sure everyone else’s needs were met before hers.
Cis is survived by two brothers, John (Annette) Wilson of Riverside, California and Jay Wilson of Astoria; and her three children, Michael and his wife Krysta of Vancouver, Washington, Misty Wilson of Astoria and Christopher Wilson of Astoria. She has eight biological grandchildren; Josiah, Karter, Karinda, Dawna, Alicia, Anthony, Lily and Audrey. She also considered many other children to be her “adopted” grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by both of her parents and three brothers; Gordon, Timothy, and Robert Wilson.
Her celebration of life will be held at the Wickiup Grange, 92683 Svensen Market Road, Astoria, Oregon, on Dec. 15, 2018, at 1 p.m. Please bring your favorite dish and/or non-alcoholic drink; no alcohol is permitted on premises.
