Lauren Nicole Wilds, 20, of Winter Garden, Florida, passed away Nov. 23, 2014, and is now resting in peace. Her bubbly, free spirit was loved by all who had the blessing of meeting her. A more-than-talented gymnast, she loved to spend time near the water and with her friends and family.
Lauren is survived by her parents, Anthony and Janet Wilds; her sisters, Amy Wilds-Sturgill and Brooke Wilds; and her nieces and nephew, Reese, Rori and Cooper Sturgill.
A celebration of Lauren’s life was held Nov. 26 at Collison Carey Hand Funeral Home. A graveside funeral service was held Nov. 28 at Woodlawn Memorial Park.
Defy Gravity, with Lauren’s family’s blessing, has set up a fund to honor Lauren’s life and her love of gymnastics. This fund will be used to help send an athlete to National Championships each year. If you would like to make a donation, it can be sent to Defy Gravity, 7432 E. S.R. 50, Groveland, Florida 34736. Please note Lauren Wilds in the memo line.
