“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be no more pain; for the former things are passed away.”
(KJV) Revelation 21:4
The Wilson and Sebo families announce with profound sorrow the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister and aunt, Rachel Diode Sebo Wilson. This sad event occurred on Wednesday, February 10th 2021 at Yale New Haven Hospital in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
She was one of several children of Mr. Johnson Toe Sebo (deceased) and Mrs. Esther Jackson Sebo (deceased). She was also predeceased by her mother, Mrs. Gertrude Weeks.
Rachel embraced the Christian faith at an early age and grew up in Liberia as an Episcopalian. In 1998, she migrated to Connecticut, USA where she resided until her death. She was a member of Gateway Christian Fellowship and frequently visited Faith Revival Temple Church in West Haven, Connecticut, where she enjoyed worship and fellowship with family and friends.
