Mildred Dingman Wilson (Mimi)

Nov. 5, 1910-May 19, 2009



Mimi Dingman Wilson was born in Paris, Texas on Nov. 5, 1910. She was seen as a woman of many faces. She was first of all Uncle Harry's loving wife, a scholar, an artist and free spirit. She was our own personal Auntie Mame. She had so many facets making her a true gem. She always told it like she saw it. She was admired and loved by many. Her husband of 59 years, Harry Wilson, her sister, Mae Spence, and her brothers, Archie Dingman and Eddie Hightower, preceded her in death. Bob Zeemin, Mae Spence's son, also preceded her in death. Mimi and Harry had no children of their own, however, she is survived by her niece, Darlene Barrick and her husband, Dr. James Barrick; her great-nephews, Bob Zeemin and his wife, Debbie, Gary Zeemin and his wife, Pam; her great-niece, Shauna Roach and her husband Mike and family, Gerry and Imaging Spence and family, and Tom Spence and his family in Wyoming; as well as great-nieces in Texas, Marsa Hightower and Sheila and her husband, Don Dolezal. There are also many great-great nieces and nephews and cousins, Margie Hansen and her daughter, Donna Behymer and her family.

She lived at Horton Plaza Retirement Community and developed many friendships over the years. She loved playing Bingo and going to the Senior Center. Our thanks also go to all of her family, friends, and caregivers who spent so much time with her. She was also an honorary member of Pear Blossom Festival Association and enjoyed participating in all their meetings, parties and events.

A memorial service will be held at Horton Plaza at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 31, 2009. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to be made to Access Inc. at 3630 Aviation Way, Medford, OR 97504 in Mimi Wilson's name.
