Wilkinson had a life partner, Fannie. But her family lawyer was taking her money, and her artwork almost became lost when she was committed to an insane asylum, where she spent the last thirty years of her life. After she was sent to the institution, her artwork as well as all her other things were put in trunks and shipped to a relative in West Virginia, where they were kept in an attic for forty years.
