Mary was born July 12, 1933 in Williston, Tennessee, the daughter of the late James McKinnie Wilson and Frances Estelle Bobbitt Wilson.

She was also a core group leader in Community Bible Study for many years. The most important thing we know and remember about her is that she was a woman who loved the Lord. She was someone who sought after Jesus, desiring to be like Him and in that, she learned what it looked like to be a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. Mary leaves a legacy of a deep faith in the Lord and devotion to her family.
