Obituary

Emogene “Genie” Wilson, 91, died Sunday, November 12, 2017, in Des Moines.

Genie hailed from the Eastern Shore of Maryland. She was a graduate of the University of Maryland.

Genie met, fell in love with, and married George A. Wilson, Jr. They made their home in Iowa and celebrated 65 years of marriage before George’s death in 2013.
Genie is survived by their two children, Allison (Jim) Fleming and George (Jean) Wilson, III. She is also survived by five grandchildren, Jennifer (Marty) Smith, Christine (John) Halbrook, Ellen (Colin) Powers, George “Skip” Wilson, IV, and Hunter Wilson, and 6 great-grandchildren. She loved them all.

Genie had broad interests beyond her family: the outdoors, including becoming a Master Gardener; education; community betterment; and her church. In addition, organizations like the Junior League, PEO, YWCA, Proteus, Questers, Colonial Dames, Terrace Hill, and the Republican Party benefited from her tireless spirit.

Genie loved people. She was always eager to welcome people into her life. Friendships were easily made and forever cherished.
A memorial service will be held St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on December 1, at 2 PM.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines Better Together Fund or to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.

ARRANGEMENTS BY ILES ~ DUNN'S CHAPEL.
