Elizabeth "Betty" Ann Wilson

March 21, 1935 — February 9, 2024

Farmville, VA

Elizabeth Ann Wilson, affectionately known as Betty, passed away peacefully on Friday,

February 9, 2024, as a resident of the Grace Unit of The Woodland, located in Farmville,

Virginia. Betty was born in Charleston, West Virginia, on March 21, 1935, as the youngest child

of the late Mary Katherine Trimble Wilson and the late George Nelson Wilson, Jr., joining a

brother, George Nelson Wilson, III. She grew up in the same house on Noyes Avenue in

Charleston, where she lived until her move to Farmville, Virginia around 2011.Elizabeth retired

from the Department of Taxation for the state of West Virginia.

Always a doting Great Aunt, Betty enjoyed searching for and gifting her great nieces and

nephews memorable toys, and often kept the toys from fast food meals to give to others.

As a hobby, Betty loved to tap dance and took lessons even as she approached the young age

of mid-to-late 60’s.

Betty was a happy soul, quick witted and one never quite knew what joke or pun that she might

come out with as you visited her. She had a wonderful and positive outlook on her life, even as

it found her living several years in the nursing home. Betty was a favorite of many of the nurses

and staff at the Woodland as well as a favorite of the friends and family members of the other

residents. She often would tell you either, “See you later, alligator,” or “After a while, crocodile,”

as you left her room. Truly a loving person that blessed the lives of those around her, Betty will

be missed.

Elizabeth is survived by her only brother, George Nelson Wilson, III, also a resident of The

Woodland, in Farmville, Virginia. She is survived by her niece, Elizabeth Wilson Smith

(Marshall) of Farmville, Virginia, and by her nephew, George Nelson Wilson, IV (Terri), also of

Farmville, Virginia, as well as great nieces and nephews, including Victoria Gayle Wilson Najjar

(Dilan), of Waynesboro, Virginia; Zachary Atkins Wilson, of Farmville, Virginia; Nicholas Hart

Wilson (engaged to Elaine Lavergne) of Chesterfield, Virginia; Dr. Mary Katherine Smith of

Ashland, Virginia; Hannah Wilson Smith, of Roanoke, Virginia and Savannah Elizabeth Wilson,

of Farmville, Virginia. She is survived by one great-great niece, Artemis Gayle Najjar. She is

also survived by several cousins.
