Life Reflections

“For now I am ready to be offered and the time of my departure is at hand.  I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith, henceforth, there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day; and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing.”    ~II Timothy 4:6-8

Mrs. Ola Mae Green Wilson was born on October 28, 1940 in Darlington County, SC a daughter of the late Jerry Green and Ola Rhodes Green. She departed this life on Sunday, June 11, 2023 at McLeod Regional Medical Center, Florence, SC after a brief illness.

She received her formal education from the public schools of Darlington County and graduated from Mayo High School Class of 1964.

On March 20, 1966, she was united in holy matrimony to the love of her life, Johnny L. Wilson, Sr. This union together raised two children – two boys.

Ola Mae was raised in a God-fearing home, and she loved to worship and serve the Lord. She began her Christian journey at Centerville AME Church, Hartsville, SC. In 1966, she became a member of Flat Creek Baptist Church, Darlington, SC, where she served as a Deaconess, member of the Senior Choir, and Sunday School secretary until her health declined.

She was a longtime member of the Order of the Eastern Star, Morning Star Chapter #220, where she served as Star Point “ESTER.”

Ola Mae had a giant personality and a generous heart. She enjoyed cooking for her husband, who she called “Lubo,” and her specialty to cook for him was sweet potato pie. She was an avid TV court show fan, but she was most passionate about the Judge Judy show.

She was preceded in death by:  her son, Kenneth J. Wilson; father, Jerry Green; mother, Ola Rhodes Green; sisters:  Meta G. McWhite, Annie Mae Green, Geraldine Green and Rebecca G. Wallace; and brothers: Chester Rhodes, Jerry Green, Sr., Freddie Green, Sr., Henry Green, and Frank Green.

Those left to cherish her precious memories are: her husband, Johnny L. Wilson, Sr. of the home; her son, Johnny (Karen) Wilson, Jr. of Upper Darby, PA; a grandson, Justin L. Wilson of Columbus, GA; sisters-in-law: Emma J. Rhodes, Daisy Green, Gloria Jacobs all of Darlington, SC, Emma D. Green of Florence, SC and Loris Wilson of Hartsville, SC; a brother-in law, Freddie Wilson of Hartsville, SC; a god-daughter, Romell Rouse of Darlington, SC; a host of nieces, nephews, other loving relatives and friends.

She will be greatly missed by the many people who knew and loved her.

Visitation for relatives and friends will be held at the residence, 2904 North Governor Williams Hwy, Darlington.
