John Wilson


A man who appreciated the perfect simplicity of being out in the natural world, John will be remembered for sharing this peaceful beauty with his family.  He will be forever missed by his wife, Beverly, his four children and his beloved grandchildren who will cherish the affection and encouragement he gave them.


To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Wilson Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the


Gift of Life Family House

The Gift of Life Family House serves as a "home away from home" for transplant patients and their families by providing temporary, affordable lodging and supportive services to those who travel to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for transplant-related care. By taking care of some essential needs of families, the organization helps alleviate one additional concern so that families can focus on healing.  Services include: affordable lodging in a warm, friendly atmosphere which includes a private bedroom and facilities for cooking, laundry and recreation; an emotional support system through a network including other families at the Family House undergoing the transplant journey, staff and volunteers; and a network for family members and caregivers outside the walls of the Family House through the Family House Caregiver Lifeline Program, an integrated network of online educational resources, community based outreach programs and support services in the Gift of Life service area tailored specifically to caregivers of transplant patients.
