Wilson, Mariella (Roby), age 69, of Kansas City, MO, passed away on Thursday, January 10, 2019 surrounded by her family, after a long and courageous battle with Lung Cancer.

Mariella was born August 22, 1949 to Russell C. and Fern (Crain) Roby in Kansas City, Missouri. After attending Southwest High School and graduating in 1967, she married Michael Wilson on May 5, 1967. They were long time residents of Raytown, MO until settling North of the River. Mariella was employed at Plastic Enterprises for over 25 years and Par Electric where she spent the last 15 years. She developed deep relationships with her coworkers and made great memories from both places, they truly were her second family. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother and two sisters. Mariella is survived by her husband of 52 years, Michael Wilson. Her children Melinda Wilson, Matthew Wilson, Marcie Taulbert (Son in Law Brad) and Tony Wilson. She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren Monica, Connor and Carson Taulbert of Lee’s Summit, MO and Taylor and DeVoe Wilson of Topeka, Kansas. Also a sweet little great- grandbaby due in 2019. Mariella wanted to be remembered as positive and fun! That is not a hard request considering she brought the best laughs and advice to those who knew her. Heaven is a little brighter with her presence. -From Michael about his beloved wife-Mary was a beautiful rose that taught you how to bloom and showed strength. Had a wonderful aura about her and never disappointed anyone she met. A Celebration of Life will be held January 19, 2018 at Abundant Life Baptist Church 414 SW Persels Rd, Lee’s Summit, Missouri 64081. Family will accept visitors starting at 11:00, Service at 12:00.

I was out of town and not on facebook the last few weeks. I went to high school with Mike. I am so sorry for the loss of your wife, mother, grandmother and friend. It is really difficult to lose someone we love and I again send my heartfelt prayers and wishes to all of you. Yours truly. Donna Svaglic Kosloski, Omaha, Ne.
