Kimberly Neese (Wilson) - Class Of 1976

KIMBERLY ANN NEESE WILSON passed away peacefully Tuesday January 26th 2010 with her husband, mother and father, her daughter and son, her brother and her minister at her side. Kimberly was born April 19th 1958 in Midland Texas to Don and Shirley Neese.  She grew up in Texas and graduated from Westchester High School – Class of 1976 - in Houston. She attended and graduated from Texas A & M in College Station and Tarleton State University attaining a Bachelors of Business Administration and Bachelors of Science Degree in Business Management. She married Jay Cooper Wilson on January 3rd 1981 in Houston and moved to Stephenville to begin their lives together. She worked for Warner Cable; he was a teacher in the Stephenville School District. She was the Publisher of the Campus Guide Magazine for Tarleton and was an Administrative Assistant in the College of Science and Technology at Tarleton. But mostly she was a devoted mother to her children BriAnne and Ben and wife to her husband Jay. She was a leader in school activities as a parent and a youth leader at the first United Methodist Church in Stephenville. In 2007 she was diagnosed with breast cancer which began her personal battle against the disease. She made trips to Washington DC and Dallas to rally those in walks and spoke to many to provide comfort. Despite the chemo, wigs, hats, friends bringing food, garage sales to raise money for cancer awareness, hospitals, doctors and prayers, she lost her fight against the disease. The family requests, in lieu of flowers, donations go to the Susan G Komen Brease Cancer Research Grant Program. www. info-komen. org/goto/love_for_Kim

I am so sorry for your loss of Kimberly. I was in the same class.

I too am battling breast cancer this year. Just found out Christmas of 2009. Mine is early detection which I do thank God for and am Praying that is all they find with my upcoming surgery.

I will be praying for your family to heal. My heart goes out to you all.

Kind regard,
Valarie Sandoz Williamson
