Bridgette “Bri” Rene Wilson, 48, a beloved, tender-hearted spirit, of Osburn, Idaho, left this world surrounded by love and entered into Jesus’ loving hands at the Shoshone Medical Center of Kellogg, Idaho on March 20, 2018. She was born December 8, 1969, in Fresno, California to Julie Wilson-Robbins, Randall Harron (Dad by choice) deceased and J.D. Robbins (Pop by choice) deceased. Bridgette grew up in Fresno, California. After high school graduation, she went to work as a Junior Architect for CYP, Inc. in Anaheim, California. She lived with her mom, Julie. Bri was diagnosed, in November 2017, with Stage 4 lung cancer, which spread to her bones. Her doctors stated it was due to smoking. Bridgette wants to spread the message to all people, but especially young people, please don’t smoke, and if you do, quit now.
Bri was the Wilson-Stacy family historian and discovered over 25 past generations. As a member of Ancestry.com for 11 years, and Findagrave.com for 10 years, she also helped many friends find their ancestors. She served as Conductress in the Ladies Auxiliary VFW 1675 of Osburn. Bri was also Mrs. VFW, for the Loyalty Day parade in 2012. She helped with many projects and fundraisers, using her computer skills to create posters ad spent many hours sitting outside of businesses collecting for VFW Poppy donations to help disabled Veterans, she was very patriotic. She made friends easily and helped with many aspects of her mom’s many other volunteer organizations. She was a devout member of Church of God, in Wallace, Idaho.

Bri was always positive and had the most beautiful smile. She had a great sense of humor and loved all types of music, children and animals.
Julie would like to thank everyone for the prayers, well wishes and support. She would also like to thank all the doctors, nurses and staff, at Kootenai Cancer Center, for their loving care while Bri was a patient there. Julie would also like to thank District Q.R.U., and all the nurses and staff at Shoshone Medical Center - especially RN Teirza and Hospice of North Idaho for making Bri comfortable in her last hours.
