Patsy Ruth (Lilly) Wilson

December 17, 1932 ~ April 17, 2019 (age 86)


Patsy Ruth Lilly Wilson went to be with the Lord on April 17, 2019.

She was born on December 17, 1932 to Clarence, Sr. and Thelma Smith Lilly of Lonoke. She was a 1951 graduate of Lonoke High School. She Married Thomas Ray Wilson on June 23, 1952. They were married for 42 years. They raised their children on a rice, wheat and soybean farm and were Farm Family of the year for Lonoke County in 1988. Patsy was a homemaker for most of her life. She enjoyed cooking, baking, gardening, embroidery and crocheting.

But what brought her the most joy in her life were her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband Thomas Ray Wilson, a son, Johnie Ray Wilson; parents Clarence, Sr. and Thelma Smith Lilly and brothers Clarence, Jr., Joe Henry, Miles and Bill.

She is survived by her daughters, Nancy (Tim) Lassiter of Ward and Patti (Todd) Cline of Vilonia; daughter-in-law Nita Wilson; six grandchildren, Alison (Tim) Huskey, Heath Lassiter, Zack (Deanna) Shaddox, Lindsey (Parker) Smith, Andrea Lassiter and Paige Cline; and nine great-grandchildren.

The family wishes to express a special thank you to Tracy Tolbert of Baptist Home Health for the love and support she gave our mother over the last few years.
