Obituary for ROBERTA VIRGINIA WILSON

Roberta Virginia Wilson was born to Alberta Bertha and Eugene Brown in Washington, DC on August 30, 1931. She was preceded in death by her parents, three sisters: Lillian Layfronia Chloe Foster, Ella Owens Carter, and Mary Elizabeth Payne, as well as her son, William Eugene Brown and eldest grandson, Terrance Devonne Brown-Ross. She was baptized at an early age and she attended the DCPS. She married Mr. Henry Clay Wilson, Sr. and they had two children; Ruby Regina and Henry, Jr. Later she met Bill B. Brown and from this union, she had an additional 8 children: five girls and three boys. Roberta did not work very long, as she was a stay at home mom raising her children. Roberta spent the majority of her life devoted to the nurturing, caring, and disciplining of her 10 children. She was known for being a generous soul to all the children in the neighborhood. She loved to cook and feed anyone that came to visit, whether you wanted a bite or not! Her doors were ALWAYS open and welcome to help others! Although, we did not have a lot, she knew how to take a little and make it stretch to feed her family. She often sacrificed much in order that her children would be provided for. It was her lifelong goal and God granted her enough time to see her youngest child reach age 50. She was loved so very much by her family and friends, and will be greatly missed. Roberta leaves to cherish her memory her children: Ruby Brown, Henry Wilson, Nonnie (Royal) Daily, Wanda Okoro, Ella (Albert) Brown-Ross, Cynthia (Angelo) Brown, Linda (Leonard) Poulson, Charles (Kimberly) Brown, Edward (Tonique) Brown : a loving niece, Frances Owens, 30 grandchildren, 23 great grand-children, and 22 great-great grand-children, nieces and nephews, other family and friends as well as her children’s father, Mr. Bill Brown.
