On July 14, 2021 the good lord opened up his arms and welcomed Mary Jo "Wilson" Johnson into Heaven. She was born on July 10, 1941 in Morgantown West Virginia to the late Marshall Wilson and Verda Wilson.

She will be missed by her daughters; Michele Schultz and Barbara Patterson (Fiancé David Freeman). Our Mom remained the same warm, kind, compassionate, feisty, organized, funny appreciative person we had always known. She has forever changed our lives and those close to her by teaching the true meaning of unconditional love. She was a doting and devoted grandmother who showed complete love for her grandchildren that she took immense pride in: Michael M. Patterson, Morgan K. Patterson, Jordan M. Patterson and great grand-daughter Ariyah J. Page. Mary Jo will also be missed by her sister Nancy (late Eddie) Tegge, her loyal companion Winston and a host of many nieces and nephews.

Mary Jo enjoyed camping, bus trips she organized through Senior North and the beach. She is preceded in death by her 3 brothers Daniel Wilson, William Wilson, Phillip Wilson and her sister Sarah Molnar.

I am so devastated by the loss of our grandma . It’s hard to put in words the pain that I feel from losing her. She was an amazing person and no holiday, birthday, or family event will ever be the same again. She was so selfless and would always go out of her way to help any one of us. Even though she would complain sometimes (in her typical grandma way lol) she would always be there when you needed her, even for the smallest of things. I appreciate everything my grandma has done for me and I wish it was possible to have an infinity of moments with her that I took for granted. It breaks my heart to have to say this about her instead of to her face personally and I hope that she heard every word we spoken to her in her last moments. I love you so much grandma and I’m sorry we couldn’t be with you in your last months due to covid. That is the thing that makes me so upset about losing you is losing that opportunity to spend that valuable time with you. I love and miss you so much and I know you are in a place where the best of people are because you deserve no less. I love you grandma
