Woodrow Odell Wilson

1943 - 2021



Woodrow Odell Wilson was born September 1, 1943 in Rotan, Texas and went home Tuesday April 13, 2021 at the age 77. Odell resided in Pritchett where he built a home for him and his wife to spend the rest of their lives in together. He has one brother and two sisters. Odell served in the Navy from 1960-1964. When Odell completed his service, he met Glendine Free and was engaged for two years before getting married and starting a family. He worked multiple jobs and put himself through medical school when he became an RN and worked at Medical City in Dallas and then later worked at Longview Regional where he retired after 30+ years in the field of medicine. He is preceded in death by his wife, Glendine Free Wilson, parents Woodrow Wilson Sr. and Nida Wilson, and brother Doug Wilson. Odell is survived by his three sons Mike and Myrtle Wilson, Eric and Katherine Wilson, David Wilson, and numerous grand-children and great-grand-children. Odell will be missed by his soft smile and love for nature. On his last years, he enjoyed watching his family go through daily activities in the yard and being a part of the family gatherings. We will celebrate Odell’s life on Saturday, April 24th at the Tyler State Park among close friends and family.
