Mrs Marie Wilson She was such a big part of Wooster and the church. She always made me feel welcome at the church when Wayne and I started dating and then married and has been a precious friend ever since. Heaven has gained a beautiful soul.

I was so blessed to call Marie my friend! She was fun to work with. My favorite work memories involved watching put her heart into designing the Wooster City Park. She was a great Christian woman and loved serving in the church. She truly loved people. She will be greatly missed. Billy and family--yall are in our prayers! ♡

Marie was the first person we met when we moved here 20 years ago. We met her when we had our water turned on. Within a few days, we got a sweet card welcomeing us to Wooster. She also invited us to visit her church, Wooster First Baptist. We did visit and joined just about the first visit there. She was my Sunday School teacher and we shared so many beautiful Sunday mornings around that table. Shared tears and laughter and the class was very close...My family loved her and Billy and held them both in highest respect. They were a couple to admire and along with so many others, we advired them. Yes Marie Wislon will be missed by so many people....What a wonderful thought that one day we will be able to see her again and i know we will know her laugh as soon as we hear it.....Thank you Marie fro reaching out to so very many people in and around Wooster!!

What a Blessing to have grown up in Wooster knowing Mrs. Marie.
She always had a smile on her face and she gave from the heart, in everything that she did. I remember hiding Easter Eggs with her for several years, so the children could find them at the fire station.
She always enjoyed doing for others and especially children and the Town of Wooster.
You will be missed my sweet friend.
Love you always .
Dwayne, Martha and Mr. Billy, Heaven has gained a special Angle.
