John "Jerry" Ellis Wilson

John "Jerry" Ellis Wilson, 80, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away Friday, September 24, 2021 at his residence.


He was born in Yancey County on March 02, 1941 to the late Bryan Wilson Dora Effler Wilson. He is also preceded in death by eight sisters.

John enjoyed music, and he liked his gun and watch collections. He loved camping and sitting on the deck waving at those that passed by. John truly loved his family and friends. It did his heart good to have them over for a meal and see them enjoy themselves before himself.

He is survived by his longtime companion, Deborah Melton; six children, Tammy Wilson, Kimberly Jamison, Danny Wilson (Sally), Jody Petrakes (Gary), Darren Wilson (Jennifer), and Mark Wilson; eleven grandchildren; three great grandchildren; one brother and three sisters, Jack Wilson (Mildred), Evelyn Alberts, Wilma Szabo, and Elizabeth Nichols; and one brother-in-law, James Lane.

A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. in the Chapel of Beam Funeral Service with Rev. Michael Robinson officiating. Entombment will follow at Oak Grove Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 10:00 until 11:00 a.m.

Flowers are accepted and appreciated; however, those wishing to make memorial donations are asked to consider St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or CarePartners Hospice- McDowell.
