CAMDEN, NJ — Given the current restrictions on funeral services in New Jersey amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Camden City School District (CCSD) said it will wait for Gov. Phil Murphy's executive orders to be lifted before properly paying tribute to late school board president Martha Wilson.

Wilson died Friday at 67 at Cooper Hospital after suffering a heart attack.

At this time, CCSD is gathering messages from the community, which you can submit here, and will be sent to the Wilson Family.

Wilson was married to Sheriff “Whip” Wilson for more than 40 years and served on the Camden school board for two decades.

Gov. Phil Murphy paid tribute to her in a Twitter post Friday, sending his prayers to the sheriff, and Wilson's family and friends.
