Carl Wilson


Carl E. Wilson, age 72 of Mingo, went home to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on October 7, 2011. On that date, he was also reunited with his son, David, who took the same journey five years ago. Carl loved to farm and help anyone in need. He loved to gather with his family and made sure his home was open to all. Carl was affectionately known as "Poppy" to his grandchildren and he especially cherished time spent with them. Carl was faithfully committed to the Lord and to the ministry at Bondurant Federated Church. He will be missed in every way by his church family and an unending line of community friends and farmers. Carl left earth a rich man, according to God's standard, when you consider his faith, his family, his friends, his life, and his love.

Carl was treasured by his wife and partner of 50 years, Sheryl Wilson on Mingo; children, Jeff (Stacey) Wilson of Newton and Diane (Kent) Wolfe of Hudson; daughter-in-law, Faith (Ben) Wilson-Kolo of Colfax; 9 grandchildren: Kassy (Travis) Shanks, Ashley Wolfe, Anna Wolfe, Preston Wilson, Kole Wilson, Grant Wolfe, Jessica Kolo, Emily Wilson, and Lain Wilson; two great-grandchildren, Dalton and Klaire Shanks and one sister, Carol (George) Van Zee of Pella. Carl was preceded in death by his parents and son, David Wilson.
