Joan Connolly Wilson passed away on Wednesday, March 6, 2013. She was a most beloved wife, mother and friend, and will be sorely missed by all.
Joan married the love of her life, Dr. William A. Wilson, on June 4, 1949. They were absolutely devoted to each other and were fortunate enough to enjoy 57 years of a deeply committed relationship to each other and to their family before Dr. Wilson preceded her in death in 2006.
Joan and her husband Bill shared an especially exceptional love of golf. After Dr. Wilson’s retirement from UTMB in 1995, they were able to spend many enjoyable days on the golf course at their vacation home in the piney woods of beautiful Rayburn Country of East Texas.
Pallbearers will be Mr. Donald Farmer, Dr. Alvah Cass, Mr. William Rider, Dr. Bernard Milstein, Dr. Edgar Jones and Dr. John Moore. Honorary pallbearers will be Mr. Bill Edwards and Mr. Randy Klibert.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials may be made to Grace Episcopal Church of Galveston, Texas.
