Jo Ann Cabral Wilson
Born January 4, 1942, Mercy General Hospital, 39th & J Street, Sacramento, I came home to a 40 acre ranch my parents purchased in 1927, in what is now known as the Rosemont area. Attended local schools, worked 30+ years for the County of Sacramento before retiring in 1998. I have a daughter Dara, son Ron, and four grandchildren. I am presently the Historian for the Rosemont Community Association; on the Board for the Rancho Cordova Historical Society, I am the chairperson in charge of the Oral History Interviews; and I am the organizer for the Edward Kelley School Alumni gatherings. I have been very active in the past doing volunteer work, i.e. Sacramento Area Firefigher's Burn Center Committee.I have a passion for perserving the history of the Rosemont, Rancho Cordova and surrounding communities. By doing oral history interviews, colleting old photo's, and artifacts my passion is being fulfilled. I believe that the stories of the people are the most important part of perserving our history.
