Connie Lynn Wilson, born of Mona and Taft Turner on July 4th, 1951, in Lubbock, Texas, entered eternal life on Monday, March 28, 2022.  Connie could do anything she put her mind to as she enjoyed a plethora of work opportunities with her favorite being anything that involved children. She spent the lion’s share of her career as a 3rd-grade school teacher in Slaton for 16 years. It was one of the greater joys of Mrs. Wilson’s life when a former student would recognize her years down the road and stop and reminisce with her about “the good ol’ days!” After leaving her successful career in education she pursued many other endeavors but found a second home in the real estate industry. She left the world of employment so she could take up the full-time endeavor of being “Granny.” A treasure that warmed her heart more than words could express but she gave it her best shot when she told them every day that she “loved them to the moon and back!”

Her prodigious organization always baffled her best friend and favorite dance partner John Wilson, who loved her for well over 50 years.  He was her everything, and she, his. She met her knight in shining armor, whom she married on July 8th, 1972, at Texas Tech where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Education (Elementary Math).  Together they enjoyed traveling all over God’s great creation, being especially fond of the beach where a yearly visit with their grandkids. They enjoyed being season ticket holders of multiple Texas Tech sporting teams for multiple years, but Saturdays in the fall were their absolute favorite! However, there was one part of their life together that they cherished above all else: their beautiful daughter Brenna. Connie loved being her mother – it was her life’s greatest and most rewarding work.

Connie only temporarily leaves behind her heart’s greatest loves; her husband John Wilson (of Lubbock), daughter Brenna (and son-in-law Brian Townsend of Lubbock), her grandchildren Christian, Jonathon, Paxton, and Brenley Shorten (of Lubbock), her mother Mona “Joy” Turner (of Lubbock); and sisters Sharon (and husband Jr. Doyle of Shallowater); and Brenda (and husband Jerry Stanfield of Lubbock); along with many nieces, nephews, friends and family too numerous to list but not forgotten.

She begins eternity by joining her father Taft Turner, and finally coming face to face with her confidant and sounding board, her dear friend Jesus!
