Annette Lyons Wilson, passed away peacefully in her home on Thursday, April 12th, 2018, just shy of her 86th birthday.
Annette lived a life full of service, love and humility. She loved her family and was an example of Christ-like love to everyone she met. She loved watching sports, playing scrabble, doing crossword puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, but most of all being with her family. She had a great love for children and enjoyed tending her grandchildren through the years. She found great joy as she served weekly in the Arizona Mesa Temple as an ordinance worker for 13 years. She blessed so many people’s lives and truly was an angel on earth.
She was born July 10, 1932 in Burley, Cassia, Idaho to Ivan Edward Lyons and Ruth Smith. She is survived by her children Kerma Solorzano, Robert Wilson, Lorna Evans, Susan Wright, Wayne Wilson and Brad Wilson, 30 grandchildren and 48 great-grandchildren with 7 more on the way.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 32 years, Arnold Ray Wilson and her sons David Wilson and Steven Wilson.
Annette will be greatly missed and the memories she made with everyone who knew her will never be forgotten. She had a strong testimony of forever families and we know that we will see her again someday.
Services will be held Friday, April 20th at 11:00 AM, with visitation from 9:30 – 10:45 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints located at 3344 E. McDowell Rd, Mesa, AZ 85213.
