Lula Mae Beauchamp Wilson

Lou’s valiant 7+ year battle with Alzheimer’s came to an end on October 12, 2018. She passed in peace with her entire family’s affection fresh upon her spirit.
Born to Cecil L. & Vernia Peacock Beauchamp on Sep 22, 1936, Lou grew up in Suwannee Gables (Old Town), Florida, graduating from Dixie County High School in 1954.
She was married to Marcus Ferrell Wilson on July 4, 1954, in Cross City, and the young couple moved to Gainesville in 1956 where they raised their family and resided the remainder of their lives. Ferrell predeceased her in 1990.
Lou is survived by her four children:
Karon K. Mixson (Johnny), Trish A. Ward (Billy), Johnny R. Wilson (Susan), and Connie K. Hicks (Treavor); seven grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. She has been endlessly devoted and delighted with each of them.
She has shared an unwavering and loving bond with her siblings, Maxie D. Beauchamp of Chiefland and Cecile (Ceal) H. Stemple of Cross City, who bid their sister a most fond and reluctant adieu.
Lou is widely renowned for her kindness and bondless geniality, qualities she shared through her work at Reitz Union, Morrison’s, and Ward’s Supermarket, whose patrons and coworkers have universally missed her good company these many years.
God bless you Lula Mae, and Godspeed to your well-deserved place in Heaven.
