A friend of many and beloved by all, Jamie Corley Wilson lost her three month battle with Covid-19 on Friday, April 2, 2021, at the age of 73. A West Monroe native and longtime resident of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Wilson was a graduate of West Monroe High School and attended the University of Louisiana Monroe. During her more than 20 years of employment at Mary Bird Perkins-Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center, Wilson was given the honorary title of "director of first impressions" as she was most often the first one who warmly welcomed patients entering the facility. Her many acts of kindness and spirit of empathy for patients and co-workers alike earned Wilson the Prestigious Sister Linda Constantin Courage and Compassion Award in 2016. Jamie leaves her memories to be cherished by her children, Stewart Wilson, Dennis Wilson (Jenny Schwartzberg); siblings, Janet Corley Roark and James Corley, Jr.; and grandchildren Kenleigh and Jace Wilson, and Emile and Leon Schwartzberg-Wilson. She is also mourned by many other loving family members and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents, James Sr. and Alma Patrick Corley; and her husband, Eddie Wilson. Unshakable in her faith, Jamie was a member of Community Bible Church, Baton Rouge. An avid sports fan, Jamie enjoyed watching any event involving a ball. If so inclined, the family suggests memorial donations be made to Community Bible Church, 8354 Jefferson Highway, Baton Rouge 70809 or Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, Office of Development, 4950 Essen Lane, Baton Rouge 70809. Visitation will take place Friday, April 9, 2021 at Resthaven Funeral Home from 9:30 AM until services at 10:30 AM. A private burial will follow at Louisiana National Cemetery in Zachary, Louisiana. Family and friends may sign the online guestbook or leave a personal note for the family at www.resthavenbatonrouge.com.

Many years ago I met this very special lady when I had daily radiation treatments at MBP Cancer Center for six weeks. She was so compassionate and comforting as she greeted everyone who was frightened and unsure of their future. She made you feel like family and will truly be missed by everyone who was blessed enough to have known her. I know she is now enjoying her heavenly rewards that she earned while she was on earth. Prayers continue for her and her family.

Jamie was truly the hands and feet of Jesus. She led a meaningful life of servitude and was truly someone that lived her faith everyday. The number of lives that she touched are countless. Rest easy my friend. Your love and legacy will live on thru all the gifts that you shared in your daily walk of life.

My deepest sympathy to Jamie’s family. My mother was a patient at Mary Bird Perkins a number of years ago, and Jamie was so warm & caring. She was so friendly & compassionate. Mama always enjoyed visiting with her on her chemo days. Her family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Jamie recommended me for my 1st job at St. Francis Lab in the early 70's and she was a great co-worker and friend to me. My heart goes out to Jamie's family.
