Barbara Kathleen Wilson

Barbara Kathleen Wilson, AKA “Kathy” of Sedona died June 26, 2012, at the age of 60.  She was born on December 28, 1951, in Detroit, Michigan to Robert and Carol Wilson.

Kathy attended school at Grosse Point and the University of Michigan, receiving her degree in Psychology.  She was a registered nurse and “compass”.  Kathy loved to read and was a literary genius.  She was also a self-paced religious scholar who loved to learn about all forms of religion from around the world.

Kathy was also ‘one tough cookie’, having been a cancer survivor for 17 years.  She always thought of others first, and no matter how ill she was, she was always polite, and courteous, and a true lady.

Kathy was preceded in death by her mother, Carol Wilson and her sister Joan Miller.  She is survived by her husband of 30 years, Jim Sesnak of Arizona; her son Ziggy and daughter Priscilla, both of Arizona; her sisters, Marianne (Charles) Lyon of Michigan, Roberta (Jay) Harrell of Arizona and Linda Sesnak of California; her brothers (in-law), David Sesnak and Joseph Sesnak, both of California; and her mother (in-law) Lillian Sesnak.
