Good morning Mom!!!
Missing you more each day. You have no idea how much I want to call you and ask the silliest questions. You where my safe place and no matter what I knew I could turn the key to your Apartment and I would be ok. right now it hurts that I will never have that on earth again. I am alone. Really alone. there was something comforting of the salty air of Atlantic City City that made me feel love and warmth. Now its just salty air. I don't think I ever want to go to new Jersey again. There is nothing left there for me. You where the only good thing. I love and miss you.

I'm not sure when I will stop coming to this page and write to you mom. I love you. Right now the wound is still open and it hurts that You left us too soon. I will come as much as time allows. Your soul was pure and i know the universe is brighter because you are surrounding us with your love and light.

Love Always Your Baby Sweet

Kathryns Life and Legacy

Life and Legacy


Celebrating the life and legacy of a wonderful person. She was a Mother, Sister, Daughter and Friend. Her predecessors include her beloved Mother Kathrine Mini Treep, her Father Lester Phillip Wilson, her Brother Phillip Wilson and her dearest friend Ma Pearl. 

She is survived by: 

4 Children: David, a daughter in Law: Misty Newsome, Kathrine and her husband of 20+ years James Watson, Tonya and her Fiancé Ronaldo Quijano Jr,  and Cindy

10 Grandchildren: David Jr, Jacob, Gabriel, Savannah, Chandler, Joseph Jr, Cameron, Mariah, Jonathan and Ulysses

4 Great Grandchildren: Braelynn, Jaylene, Zoey, and Ryan

2 brothers: Paul and Benjamin 

Kathryn was the life of any party, Always making everyone laugh.It was often said that she missed her calling and should have been a comedian. Coffee with a friend was her peace and regular visits to “Daves Store”.  Atlantic City was her town. Nickel Pickling at her favorite Casino was a favorite Pastime.  She enjoyed being around people but also enjoyed her quiet home life. But most of all she loved being a mother. She was the only one of her siblings to have children so she was The Matriarch. She was especially proud to be of indigenous heritage and talked about it often. She was a dreamer and her dreams usually stood for something. Anyone who knew her has been privy to her vivid and accurate visions. She was an empath and she felt deeply. She loved hard and was always helping others. She had a love for cooking and she would feed all who entered her home. If she knew you were hungry she would go out of her way to bring you food. This attribute was most admired by many. She offered all she had until she couldn't. Her strength and courage reaches beyond her demise as she gave the gift of life to so many as an organ donor. Her generosity is unmeasured. She lives on in her children and the many lives she has touched

Birthdays

Shared by Tonya Alvarez on June 8, 2021
This story is not a long one but it means so much to our family. My mother was not rich. She wasn't extravagant in any way. But... it didn't stop her from sending her $1-$5 in a card for each and every child and grandchild she had until she couldn't see. She lost her sight in 2019 so I didn't expect her to send them. In late 2017 I moved down south but i was able to go see her in 2019 and my only regret is not taking her with me. She never missed a birthday. She had her calendar marked with each child and grand child birthday!!! I could be having the worst year and my birthday would roll and she sent a card always signed with her cheesy flower, to bring cheer to my soul. Moms are special and she was mine!!!


lullaby's

So i have another fond memory that i want to share. My mother loved to sing. She loved music and she could sing quite beautifully. A talent i know she passed down to me and my younger sister. there is one song that i remember her singing. later to find out it was from a commercial for hair ties for girl. 
" I peaked out to say Good night and all I saw where Scolly ribbons for her hair...." 
I have no idea what else the song said i just know that for 17 + years that song rang in my heart as i lived through the toughest times. 

Mom you are forever in my heart.

cards and diaries

Shared by Tonya Alvarez on June 6, 2021
So my mom has  a habit of keeping everything you give her and she is a record keeper. I remember she had this trunk full of pictures and cards and any and every letter we ever gave her. I was brought to tears that she had so much. I was 18 years old and had not seen my mothers since our last visitation when I was 7 years old. My mother was given such a hard hand. She was a saver of memories. 

Thus is a story that resonates so deeply in my heart. She loved us and there was a full record of it. She also had written diaries that i sat and read like it was a best selling novel. Not a day went by that she did not wish for her babies to be with her. 

I love you mom for this. 
forever your Baby Sweet - Tonya
