Mary Parker Wilson, of Blackstone, VA, entered into eternal rest and peace at the Eden Pines Assisted Living Center, Petersburg, VA. She received her education in the Nottaway County Public School system and graduated from the Nottaway Training School. In her early years, while she held several jobs outside of the home, as her children came about, she became a full-time housewife. In addition, she assisted many elderly in the community with writing and reading their correspondence and written communications as they were unable to read or write.

At an early age, she gave the Lord her life and became a member of the Mount Nebo Baptist Church, Blackstone, VA. Although Mary was very loyal to her Mt. Nebo membership and her husband and their five children joined and worshipped at the Mount Gazarine Baptist Church in Blackstone, she, along with her family, was always involved in the ministries of both churches. She also served for a number of years as the director of the Mount Nebo Youth Choir.

Funeral services were held at 1 p.m. Monday, Dec. 4, 2006, at the Mount Nebo Baptist Church, Mt. Nebo Road, Blackstone, VA.

Funeral arrangements entrusted to the staff of the W.E. Hawkes Funeral Home, 504 East St., Blackstone, VA.
