Wynifred Anne Wilson “Grey Malkin” Grey was born in Asheville on the 29th June 1990 and chose to leave us to find their own people on the 30th December 2020. A talented and creative artist who graduated from AB Tech College with a degree in art, Grey found joy in painting, gardening, acting and caring for animals. Grey shared those talents with the Montford Park Players, helping with cast make-up, scene painting and the portrayal of the spider in James and the Giant Peach, and Tiger Lily in Peter Pan. Grey also found happiness in L.A.R.P. roles and was in the process of building a venue in Tennessee, along with friends. Grey volunteered at the WNC Nature Center and shared many funny stories about looking after the otters there. Grey especially loved to travel and shared many happy moments with their person, Mick Radford. Grey is survived by Diane Wilson, mother, Robert Travers, second father and Michael Travers, brother, all of Asheville. George Wilson, father, Barbara Morgan, second mother of Weaverville, Bob Wilson, uncle, of Atlanta. Chosen Grandmother, Mildred Greene, of Candler, and precious cat, Nubs, who Grey loved dearly. All are going to miss Grey's caring and artistic presence as well as Grey's unique sense of humor. Ultimately Grey wrote the play which Grey lived to the fullest. A celebration of Grey's life will be announced at a future date. Donations in Grey's memory can be made to the Montford Park Players or to the WNC Nature Center (Preferably to the otters). Grey is free.
