December 11, 1948 - December 11, 2021
On Saturday, December 11, 2021, in Pensacola, FL, Nancy Lynn Wilson, 73, went to be with her Savior and was reunited with her husband and parents. She is survived by her children: Kevin (Christine) Wilson, Jill (Justin) Manny, Sandi (Clinton) Guice, Brian (Glenda) Wilson, Beth Wilson, Rachael (Steve) Croley, Leah (Dick) Currey, and 17 grandchildren that called her Nanny, (which she relished in), sister Joann Johnson, brother Johnny Johnson, and nieces. Nancy Lynn Johnson Wilson was born on December 11, 1948 to Ottis and Louise Johnson in Troy, AL. After losing her father at a young age, she helped her mother with her younger brother and sister, which surely contributed to her nurturing spirit and gift to care for others. She attended Escambia High School in Pensacola. In 1969 she began work at Monsanto where she met the love of her life, Dennis. She and Dennis were married for 39 years before he went home to heaven. Nancy was known for many things, but her warmth and ability to serve others is what we will remember most. She gave of herself and sacrificed so that the people in her life could have all that they wanted. She was incredibly selfless and generous. She was active at her church and led Sunday school alongside her husband for many years. There they mentored and spoke into many peoples' lives to lead them closer to Jesus. While Dennis was teaching or on mission trips, Nancy was often behind the scenes handling all the details. She was a servant in every sense of the word and never needed credit or attention. She worked at Escambia Westgate school and Ransom Middle where she cared for students with special needs. Her compassion and hands-on care for the children was inspiring. She often went out of her way to do extra for them, going as far as bringing them to her home and visiting them at their own. Nancy was hilarious, fun, silly, and loved a good get together. She was incredibly resourceful and could MacGyver any item into something useful. She was beautiful and knew how to put together a good outfit. She was an avid QVC shopper and a favorite of the UPS drivers. She was a dang good cook and really good at reheating leftovers to make them taste even better than the first time. She made her house an inviting and welcoming home to countless friends. She created magic in all the big and small moments. She was most proud of her children and grandchildren. Her joy and pride in who they are and the depth to which she loved them will be missed. Services for Nancy will be held at Olive Baptist Church on December 22nd, 2021. Visitation begins at 10:00am, service at 11:00am. Graveside will be at Magnolia Cemetery, Evergreen, AL.
