Sallie Jane (Wyatt) Wilson
Sallie Jane (Wyatt) Wilson was born in 1939 to Mr. and Mrs. Frank B. Wyatt. She recently passed away peacefully at the age of 81 in Beaumont, Texas.
In high school, Sallie Jane was an avid athlete enjoying competitive swimming, volleyball and basketball. She began learning piano at an early age and it became a life-long vocation. She went on to study at San Angelo College (Angelo State University now) where she met her future husband, Ches.
Sallie had a love for children and sharing with them her love for music. Sallie taught piano lessons for 53 years and was Assistant Band Director in Borden County. She also provided piano and organ accompaniment for numerous churches in various towns throughout her career; but, her love was always playing accompaniment for Ches’ singing. They held a weekly Gospel Singing Hour up until mid-2019 at their home in League City, Texas.
