Flora, affectionately known to her friends as Flo and her family as Shorty, was born in Georgia, in 1928 to Frank Sr. and Lebby Pilcher. She was one of nine children. Flora’s early life was spent working and helping her parents in the fields around her home. Flora met the love of her life Frank Wilson and soon married and had two sons.
Flora’s life was dedicated to caring for others and throughout her life she would be the caretaker for numerous family members and friends. She was a long-time member of the First United Methodist Church in Lake Charles, La., there she was a member of the United Methodist Women. Flora was a tireless volunteer and was honored for her work with the UMW. Flora loved to cook, and you rarely entered her home when she wasn’t cooking something. She was a force to be reckoned with.
