Johnnie Bill ‘J.B.’ Wilson

Formerly of La Grande


Johnnie Bill “JB” Wilson, 97, of Pasco, Wash., died Aug. 5 at a local care center in Pasco. Her funeral service will begin at 2 p.m. Saturday at Loveland Funeral Chapel. Burial will be at Hillcrest Cemetery.

She was born Oct. 1, 1913, in Durante, Okla., to C.D. Fults and Mary E. Savage Fults.

She married Miles J. Wilson. Johnnie and Miles built their home in La Grande where she lived until October 2006 when she move to Richland, Wash., and then to Pasco. She said their home in La Grande was the first house to be fitted with a solar water heater in 1978 in the area.

Those who knew Johnnie say she leaves behind nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends, grandkids and great-grandkids who played very important roles in her life and she in their lives.

Her interests included gardening, sewing and crafts including wood-working. She loved spending time with her family.

She devoted much of her time and energy as a caregiver to Miles before he died in December of 1978. She volunteered at the senior center, wearing many hats and helping out where needed. She helped in the kitchen, with setting tables, in the general store, making parade ribbons and more. She was proud of being a part of “Sorghum Sqeezin’,” making sweet golden sorghum.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Miles “Slim”; son, Anthony D. Swinney “Dan”; and her six siblings.
