Wynell (Birchfield) Wilson was born in Cleburne, Texas to Nathan Wheeler Birchfield and Thelma Louise (Jones) Birchfield on November 7, 1930. She is preceded in death by her husband Forrest Edgar Wilson, Sr. who she married on August 13, 1950, in Cleburne. They were long-time residents of Cedar Hill, Texas where they raised their four children. She later moved to Garland and Angleton with her daughters where she enjoyed the past 19 years of her life.
Nell Wilson loved teaching Bible class and preparing cookies for Vacation Bible School at the Cedar Hill Church of Christ. Although she did not drive, she ensured that she and her children attended all services, activities and events at the Church. She also worked at Republic Bank in Dallas, and as a cook for Cedar Hill Daycare and Cedar Hill ISD Food Service. She loved word-find puzzles, playing chicken-foot and Mexican train dominoes. She loved her family birthday parties – there were never too many people in her room as she loved having everyone together at the same time. She also loved singing gospel songs, streaming church services and drawings and skits performed by the great grands.
She is survived by her children, Forrest Edgar Wilson, Jr. and his wife Karen of Houston; Randall Keith Wilson and his wife Carol of Austin; Nelda Jean Rambo and her husband Dee of Angleton; and Karen Denise Brown and her husband Bill of Houston.
