Mrs. Jo Ann Wilson, 73, passed away March 27, 2014 in Pell City. "This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it." Psalms 118:24 If you had ever met Jo Ann, you would know that her life was a daily celebration of the joy of Christ. Today we celebrate along with many others who have gone on before her, the fact that she is finally home. Her strong will to live, unwavering faith in God, and the love and prayers of family and friends carried her through. Throughout her life she maintained a sweet and simple demeanor that won the trust and hearts of many, who even now are being changed by her witness of constant nurturing, love and faith. Words seem quite inept to express the depths of our gratitude for the great gifts she gave us just by knowing her. A kind word, a helping hand, someone who you could count on to pray for and encourage you- these are just a few of the many things for which she will always be remembered. She was preceded in death by her husband, Mark Lee Wilson. She is survived by daughters, Patricia Ann Richey (Jarred), Joan Wilson; son Mark Wilson (Michelle); grandchildren, Dawson & Hailey Richey, Christopher & Matthew Fish; sisters, Betty Hollis, Patsy Ayres, Peggy Graham; brothers, Charles Dorough, Johnny Dorough, Wade Dorough, Kenneth Dorough. Funeral service for Mrs. Wilson was Sunday, March 30, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. at Usrey Funeral Home in Pell City with the Rev. Ben Howard, the Rev. Donna Howard, the Rev. Larry Wimberly officiating. Burial followed in St. Clair Memorial Gardens. Condolences may be offered online at www.usreyfuneralhome.com "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of all His saints."
