Listen to this obituary

Shirley Elaine Wilson, 95, of Bruce passed from this life on July 16, 2020, at the Bruce Community Living Center. Born on December 18, 1924, in Calhoun County, Shirley was a daughter to the late Freddie Powell Yancy and Agnes Reed Yancy.

Shirley was a one of kind woman; she like the rest of her generation knew the value of hard work in every aspect of life. She enjoyed all things nature, especially tending to her beloved garden. Shirley found the time and had the persistent patience it took to piece together a quilt. As a faithful member of Mt. Moriah Baptist Church Shirley knew the Lord and His promise of eternal life.

Shirley leaves behind a loving family to carry her memory in their hearts; two sons: Pete (Ann) Wilson of Algoma, and Grady (Doris) Wilson of Bruce; three grandsons: Len Wilson, Jamie Wilson, and Christopher Wilson; eight great grandchildren; one great great grandchild; one sister, Mary Scruggs of Tupelo, Mississippi.

She was preceded in death by her husband, William Glen Wilson; son, Billy Joe Wilson; one brother, Charles Yancy.

1 thought on “Shirley Wilson”

  1. Dear Wilson family, you have my deepest sympathy in this time of bereavement. The pain death causes can be hard to bear but you are not alone. In Gods word he promises to comfort us in all our trials
    2 Corinthians 1:3,4, and that’s wonderful to know he loves us that much.
    He also says at Acts 24:15 that he’s going to resurrect our loved ones. So you can see your dead loved ones again.
