Dear Wiley,
My sister, Barbara Crews, alerted me to the recent loss of your wife Marie. I never had the pleasure of knowing her or your daughters or of even seeing you since we were very young, but I wanted you to know that my thoughts are with you and your family. I can still remember the many times that I came to your home. God Bless!

Teresa and family, I was sad to read about the passing of your mother, as a friend from the past, I offer my condolences and offer up this prayer for you and your family, On this day may you find the peace that only Christ has to offer, may you allow Him to wrap your lives in His arms and share His strength with you, and may He be the Rock that you lean on during this difficult time. God bless you.

As a little girl in TN, I’d be so excited when we came to visit family. The first place to stop was Grandma and Grandpa Wilson’s house, then go just a little farther and stop at Uncle Wiley’s and Aunt Marie’s. I can still see her coming out the back porch to the car waving hello. She always gave good hugs and had the biggest smile on her face. Many of the worlds problems were solved at her kitchen table……or maybe just some of mine. She had a gentle way about her, that told you that “you” were special.I will miss her.

From Joe D Phillips...

Aunt Marie was such a sweetheart all my life. She was the first lady I remember after Momma and Grandma Wilson circa 1948, a beautiful young lady with cold black hair.

I am so glad she had a happy life and wonderful family.

with love,

Joe Phillips (Sister-in-Law Ruth Wilson’s oldest son)

From Bob and Beth Wilson...

Aunt Marie was a very loving woman and was very proud of her daughters, sons-in-laws and grandchildren. Her pain and suffering is finally over and we should all rejoice for that. May she rest in peace in the arms of our Lord.
