January 4, 1931 - November 7, 2020
Mrs. Lena Mae “Ms. Eli” Wilson 89 years, of Saginaw, Michigan arrived at the Gates of Heaven Friday, November 7, 2020, after a lengthy illness at HealthSource of Saginaw. She was born January 4, 1931 in Hughes, Arkansas to Lucinda and James Birmingham. She was a longtime member of Coleman Temple C.O.G.I.C., now World Outreach Campus Church. Mrs. Wilson was employed by Saginaw General Hospital until her retirement. She was a woman of simple things who always put God first. There were four things she loved more than life itself; God, because she knew He loved her unconditionally. The Bible; because it always brought her comfort. Her deceased mother, because she lost her at the early age of eight and she missed her immensely and her children of whom she lived for. She is survived by one son and four daughters, Ralph Eli (Lydia), Brenda Williams (Terry), Cherrie Eli, Ebony Eli and Grace Williams; brother, Jim Birmingham (Jessie Lee); two very special men dear to her heart, J.C. Smothers and Eddie Williams, Jr.; she also leaves behind an abundance of grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Mrs. Wilson was preceded in death by husbands, Grant Eli and Fred Wilson; son, Grant Eli, Jr. “Chopper”; daughters, Rose Mary Eli-Barnes and Johnnie Mae Eli-Harris; her parents and three brothers.
