Leading up to her death, her friend and former co-star Shar Jackson reached out to her twitter followers to pray for her friend. Shar consequently broke the news of her friend’s death, also through twitter.
Until June 9, there was an ongoing effort to raise funds for Wilson’s medical costs as well as her transportation. The website that that was created to raise funds for her reportedly raised a little over half of the target amount.
Although Wilson was best known for acting on the television comedies ‘Moesha’ and ‘The Parkers’, she also acted in movies. She appeared on many comedy films such as House Party 2, House Party 3, Friday and Def Comedy Jam.
Rest In Peace, Yvette.
