Greg Warren Wilson

Wilson, Greg

Greg Warren Wilson, 57 passed into his eternal reward on Saturday May 27, 2017. He was born on May 29, 1959 in San Antonio, TX to C. Ivan and Lola Wilson. He was the third of four boys and was “just the one we wanted.”

After graduating from Mary Carroll High School in 1977, Greg obtained a business degree from Texas A&M University class of ’81. As a youngster, Greg’s grandfather nicknamed him ‘Happy Jack’ which was a true reflection of Greg’s personality throughout life. He loved people and quickly developed deep personal relationships with those he encountered. Greg’s ability to connect with people served him well in his banking and real estate career.  From custom home building in the DFW area, to President of First City Bank in Aransas Pass, to an agent with Coldwell Banker, Greg loved helping people find solutions to their needs. Greg was a very loving and compassionate caregiver to his parents during the last seventeen years of their lives.  Perhaps his greatest asset was how comfortable everyone felt around him. You could be yourself with Greg.

Greg is survived by one son, Grant Wilson and daughter-in-law Katie of San Antonio, TX. LaDonna and Steve Mack of Boerne, three brothers, Alan Wilson (Catrina) of Corpus Christi, Dale Wilson (Sandy) of Alice, and Mark Wilson of Clear Lake. He is also survived by numerous nephews, nieces, uncles, aunts and cousins. Greg’s quick wit and Happy Jack personality will always be remembered and cherished.

The visitation will be Friday, June 2, 2017 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Kings Crossing Church of Christ, 5901 Yorktown Blvd., Corpus Christi, Texas.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at Kings Crossing Church of Christ.

Noni Suzanne Hale

Hale, Noni

Noni Suzanne Hale was born on July 23, 1941. She went to be with the Lord on May 23, 2017.  Noni was 75 years old.

Noni is preceded in death by the love of her life, O.R. Hale and her first cherished grandson, Austin Akin.

Noni is survived by her children, Suzette Hale Wagner and her husband Scott, Shannon Hale Gulley and her husband Bryan, Jay Hale, and John Hale and his wife Mari, her sister, Donna Molatore and her husband Dave of Oregon; 10 grandchildren and one great grandchild all of whom she considered one of her life’s biggest blessings; numerous nieces, nephews, and relatives spanning from Louisiana, to Texas to Oregon.  Noni also leaves behind an extended larger circle, that she affectionately referred to as “framily.”

Noni was extremely proud of, and considered her children her greatest accomplishment. She found beauty in all living things.  Noni had a very giving and welcoming personality and a willingness to love and help everyone she encountered.  She also loved animals, caring for even the most neglected.   Noni’s passions included painting, floral arrangement and listening to what she called “happy” music from the  1950’s.

All who knew Noni, knew she believed there was no such thing as being over dressed. Whether a Vegas Casino or a neighborhood dinner, Noni embraced the mantra that glitz and glamour were always in style. Glitter, sequins and bling were second nature to her.  Her outward beauty and style was eclipsed only by her inward beauty.

Noni was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed by her family and all that loved her.

Funeral services will be conducted at 10 A.M. Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at Sawyer-George Funeral Home Chapel. Graveside services will be conducted at 3 P.M. Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at East Memorial Cemetery in Stephenville, Texas.

Judy Kay Adams

Adams, Judy

Judy Kay Adams, 72, went to be with the Lord early on the morning of May 21, 2017 after a long, courageous battle with cancer. She was at home, surrounded by her loving family, which is exactly what she wanted.

Judy was born August 3rd, 1944 in Benton, Arkansas to Clyde and Marie Hendrix. She graduated from high school in Magnet Cove, Arkansas and then earned her teaching degree at what was then Henderson State Teachers College in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. She taught for 24 years, of which 1 ½ were in Arkansas, while the remaining were in Texas – mainly Taft, Calallen, and Orange Grove.  She was also a member of Christ Central Baptist Church.

Judy was an inspiration to her family and to her many friends. People were drawn to her as a woman of integrity and love. She valued hard work and spent much of her time working in her yard, which included having it decorated for the nearest holiday or season.  She also enjoyed playing dominoes with her friends and family and had a lifelong affinity for reading.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents, Clyde and Marie, and one brother, Doyle Kenneth.

Judy is survived by her husband, Bill Adams and one daughter, Vickie Wilson and son-in-law David Wilson of Robstown, Texas. She was “Granna” to her two grandsons, Christopher Wilson (with wife Penny) of Conroe, Texas and Nicholas Wilson (with wife Valerie) of College Station, Texas. She is also survived by two sisters, Pat Gordon and Juanita Sample of Benton, Arkansas and many nephews, nieces, cousins, and countless friends.

A memorial service will be held for Judy on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at 10:00AM at Sawyer-George Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Judy’s name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Shriner’s Hospital.
