Wilson, who was 76 when she died, was an original co-founding member of The Supremes, alongside Diana Ross and Florence Ballard, and featured on all 12 of the band's chart-topping hits from 1964 until 1969, including "Stop! In the Name of Love" and "You Keep Me Hanging On".
Wilson also appeared on U.S. TV talent show "Dancing With the Stars" in 2019.
She's survived by daughter Turkessa, son Pedro Antonio Jr and six grandchildren.
Diana Ross paid tribute to her former bandmate in the wake of her passing. "I just woke up to this news, my condolences to you Mary's family," she wrote. "I am reminded that each day is a gift, I have so many wonderful memories of our time together The Supremes will live on, in our hearts (sic)."
