Evelyn Bell Wilson, 80, of Perris California, passed away peacefully at home on January 17, 2024 after her third bout with Cancer.
Evelyn was born on November 3, 1943 in Huntsville, Alabama. She was one of five children. Evelyn lived in Alabama until her Senior year of high school in which her family moved to Westland, Michigan. Here she met the love of her life William Dennis Wilson.

It was in Baldwin Park, that she raised her family. She embodied the best qualities: unconditional love, strength of spirit and an unending generosity that could be seen in the care of her older sister and being the taxi for all the kids in the neighborhood.
