Julia Stella Tims, 95, passed away October 23, 2007. She was born December 24, 1911 to James Brown and Viney Davis Tims.

She was married to Isaac Wilson Sr. in 1933. They had 10 children together before being divorced.

Julia was of the Methodist faith for the biggest part of her life but converted to the Baptist faith in her later years. She was truly devoted to her church and continued attending until she wasnt physically able. Another devotion of hers was all her children, grandchildren, and all the other people who came into her life. She loved to make a garden for her vegetables which she did until just two or three years ago. The gardens became smaller every year until she gave it up.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Edgar and James Tims; sisters, Dora and infant Dela Tims; a half-brother, Rufus Tims; a half-sister, Martha Jacob; stepdaughters, Mary Jane Samis and Anna Mae Wilson; a stepson, known as Big Junior; sons, R.B. and Lester Ray Wilson; and an infant, Charlie Wilson.

Survivors include her sons and daughter-in-law, Leroy and Richard Wilson of Smithville, Isaac Wilson Jr. of New Caney, Texas, and Robert and Paulette Wilson of Tahlequah; daughters and sons-in-law, Dora Wilson of Haskell, Ruby and Dale Smith of Boynton and Opal and Eugene Ludlow of Smithville; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, some great-great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends from all over the United States.

Life without her will be difficult but she has finally gotten the peace and rest that she so greatly deserved. She made a big difference in a lot of lives and will be dearly missed by all.
