Posted By Kyle Nikola On March 20, 2020 @ 2:40 pm In Obituaries | 10 Comments

Shirley Wilson Hildreth, 73, passed away on March 19, 2020, at her residence surrounded by family.

Shirley, born on October 2, 1946, in Millen, Georgia, was the youngest of three to Lolamae and Grover Wilson. In 1963, Shirley and her older brother Billy moved to Savannah, Georgia. Little did Shirley know that around the same time she would meet the love of her life, Michael Hildreth and two years later they would be husband and wife.

Shirley and Michael were that once in a lifetime couple – two people you love and never forget. In 1965, they welcomed their first-born child Mary to the family and in 1968, they welcomed another little girl, Michelle.

Shirley was a cosmetologist who worked alongside her husband for many years before opening a store down on Riverstreet, which she had for about 8 years. She was a devoted wife and mother who loved her children, grandchildren, and all of their friends. The Hildreth household welcomed all. She also enjoyed crafting, crocheting, and gardening; but most of all, spending time with her family.

Shirley is preceded in death by her parents, her two siblings: Dorothy Andrist and Billy Wilson, Her son James (Bubba) Wilson and her oldest daughter Mary Hildreth.

She is survived by her husband Michael, Her daughter Michelle Rush (Steve), Her two grandchildren Megan Pridgeon (Aaron) and Brittany Hildreth. Great-grandchildren: Ryleigh Carter, David, Aaron, Noah and Raigan Pridgeon, and many nieces and nephews.

Condolence from Miriam Fulton on May 4th, 2020 7:26 pm

I just heard about Shirley today, May 4, and I am so sad. l need a haircut so bad but I had not called Michael because of this terrible situation the entire world is in. I will be calling because soon I will not be able to see. My hair is in my eyes and I cannot find anything in this house to use to pin it back and cannot go out to buy anything.
Michael, Michelle, Brittany, and all your family, my heart goes out to you. It is so difficult to lose someone and there are no words to express my feeling. May God bless you, keep you, and comfort you.
