January 31, 1937 - June 7, 2020
Patsy Woody Wilson, 83, passed away on Sunday, June 7, 2020, at Heather Glen Assisted Living in Arden, NC. Patsy was born in Marion, N.C., in 1937. She was the daughter of the late Louise Patton Woody, and late William Earl Woody, Sr. She was married for 54 years to the love of her life, Boyce Rogers Wilson, Sr., who preceded her in death. She attended Appalachian State University and Wake Forest University. She enjoyed working for many years at Womble, Carlyle, Sandridge and Rice. She was a long-time member of Knollwood Baptist Church in Winston Salem, NC and was active in many areas of church life over the years. She had been a Sunday School teacher, served on various committees, but her main interest was in serving the youth of the church. Many of her fondest memories were having gone on youth retreats to help cook and serve meals, as well as love the teens of the church, many of whom she had known from childhood. Pat, as she liked to be called was an active, supportive, and involved wife, mother, friend, neighbor and community member. She served on PTA, led a Girl Scout troop, attended innumerable sports practices and games, dance rehearsals and recitals, and theater performances. She enjoyed attending Wake Forest football games with Boyce and dear friends over the years as season ticket holders. She loved attending the Little Theater of Winston Salem with Boyce as well. She was a past member of the Clemmons Development Council, Chairman of the Clemmons Appearance Commission, and past President of Woodhaven Garden Club. Pat was a lover of nature and gardening. A hallmark of her home was her beautiful garden which she had cultivated over the years and loved to share with friends and loved ones. Her garden was a reflection of who she was as a person; someone who enjoyed beauty, met God in His creation, and planted seeds of love and cheer in everyone she met. Her lovely smile and sense of fun made her dear to all who made her acquaintance. Her survivors include her brother, Bill Woody and his wife, Elizabeth, of Drexel, NC; daughter, Terese Christian, son-in-law, Jay Christian and grandsons, Noah and Joshua, of Asheville, NC; son, Roger Wilson, daughter-in-law, Deanna, and grandson, Chandler, and granddaughter, Shelby, of Algonquin, IL. A private graveside service will be held at the Knollwood Baptist Memorial Garden in Winston, Salem, NC due to current health restrictions. In lieu of flowers, the family requests gifts be made in her memory to the Knollwood Baptist Youth fund. Thank you to Morris Funeral and Cremation Care of Asheville, NC for their kind and excellent care and services.
