Jimmie White Wilson

Obituary Date: Saturday, November 19, 2016

Jimmie White Wilson Born February 5, 1928 in New Holland, GA, died November 19, 2016 at the Oaks of Limestone, Gainesville, GA after an extended period of declining health.

                Funeral services will be held, Tuesday, November 22, 2016 at 2:00 pm at Memorial Park Funeral Home Chapel; with interment to follow at Wauka Mountain Baptist Church Cemetery.  Rev. Lamar Purcell will officiate.   Visitation will be held Sunday, November 20, 2016 from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm and Monday, November 21, 2016 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm and 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

                She was a loving mother, wife, and grandmother who loved unconditionally and sacrificially.  She was a stay at home mother until her youngest child began school at which time she began her service with the Wauka Mountain School lunchroom for which she served twenty five years.  She was known by school children and folks in her community for her love of singing and was referred to by many children as “The Singing Lunchroom Lady”. 

                She had a magnetic love that just drew others to her.  And though she lived a simple humble life style, she always said she was rich because she had her Lord and Savior and her husband, children and so many family and friends.

                She was a member of Wauka Mountain Baptist Church and in later years also attended Bethany Baptist Church.                She lived in Hall County, Georgia all of her life and will now reside in a mansion on streets of gold.

                A special thanks to the staff, caregivers and many friends at the Oaks at Limestone, Gainesville, GA.
