CAROL “BARB” WILSON
Carol Barbara “Barb” Wilson went to rest on Friday, Nov. 22, 2013, with her family by her side.
Barb was born Dec. 25, 1932, in Esko, to Axel and Esther (Sarkela) Huima. She was a lifelong resident of Cloquet. She graduated from Cloquet High School and worked at City National Bank, Diamond Match, Northwest Paper and the Cloquet schools. She met the love of her life, Ernest Wilson, and they were married Sept. 10, 1955. They had two daughters, Heidi and Paula. Together they created many happy memories and a wonderful home to grow up in that was full of laughter and love.
Barb enjoyed first and foremost, being a mother and grandmother. She was simply THE BEST. She also enjoyed music and dancing, camping, sports, baking, exercising, shopping and getting together with her many close friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Ernest; parents; mother and father-in-law, Mathilda and William Wilson; sister Edna Maki; and brother Floyd Huima.
Barb is survived by her daughters, Heidi (Ross) Zegan and Paula (Jenny Gilberg) Wilson; and her grandchildren who she adored, Haylee, Alexander and Marco.
The family would like to thank the staff at St. Luke's Hospice Home Care & Inpatient and Diamond Willow of Cloquet for keeping Mom relaxed and comfortable during her final days. Your compassion is a true gift, and we will be forever grateful.
VISITATION: 2 until the 3 p.m. funeral service Tuesday, Nov. 26, in the Atkins Northland Funeral Home, 801 14th St., Cloquet.
Burial will be at Maple Grove Cemetery. A time of lunch and fellowship will follow in the fireside room of the funeral home.
