Our beloved Wife and Mother AnnaLou Heddesheimer Wilson age 75 passed away September 23, 2012 after a lengthy illness.

AnnaLou Wilson was born March 23, 1937 – the daughter of Wilbert Franz Heddesheimer and Margaret Frances Sneed Heddesheimer in Troy, Mo. She graduated high school in Salisbury, Mo. in 1955. On August 11, 1957 she married Donald L. Wilson of Salisbury, Missouri. Anna Lou and her husband Don raised their family in Rolla, Missouri. During their working life AnnaLou met many friends and fed many a good dinner to those she knew. In their retirement years they traveled to many of the places they had dreamed of in the United States. Along the way were stops to visit dear children, grandchildren and many friends.

AnnaLou was extremely talented in sewing and cooking and shared many handmade gifts with those she loved. AnnaLou and Don settled in Southern Utah in 2002 where she continued enjoying crafts, cooking and spending time with the Ladies of the Hurricane Red Hat Society. Anna Lou was the life of the party and wherever she was, a good time was to be had by all.
