Mrs. Jeanette May Wilson, age 65, of Gloversville, New York, died on Friday, November 12, 2021 at home with her loved ones following an illness.

She was born on May 25, 1956 near Seneca Lake, New York, the daughter of Gordon and Marilyn (Putman) Spencer. She graduated from Wheelerville High School and continued her education at Bible College.
