In Memoriam

Monica Wilson

June 25, 1963 – December 6, 2020

Salt Lake City Mission First Lady Monica Lee Wilson, the mission “MOM” beat us all to Jesus on December 6th, 2020 at 9:45pm PST in North Bend Oregon. We celebrate her life and victory. She lived life with Jesus in the center of her producing a jubilant and infectious joy flowing from her that spread to everyone. She was genuine, loved the simple things in life and found the beauty in everything.

She was born on June 25, 1963. Monica was placed into foster care at age 13 and adopted at age 18 by a loving couple Melvin E. & JoAnn Fudge Young. She was the faithful loving wife of Pastor Wayne Wilson for over 26 years. She impacted over a half million people and she was a mother to over hundreds of thousands of homeless and hurting men, women and children at the mission. She loved, laughed, fed, mothered, corrected, taught, sang, entertained, counseled, brought joy, healing, deliverance, and prayed continually for all of them.

Her funeral was held Friday December 18th at 11:00 am MST. You may view the recording by visiting her obituary at
