Harriet Simmons Wilson, 67, of Winnabow, passed away Monday, June 6, 2016, at her home.

Mrs. Wilson was born April 7, 1949, daughter of Salema Ivey Simmons and the late Harry Herbert Simmons. She enjoyed working on Bald Head Island for many years and won Employee of the Month for her exemplary service.

Mrs. Wilson also loved fishing and going to the lake and beach to spend her days in the sun. She liked to be on Facebook to keep in touch with her friends and family. One of her favorite pastimes was picking up her grandson, Colton, from Wednesday night service at Harvest Fellowship and taking him to buy a milkshake. All who knew her, knew she was so easy to please and love. She liked company, had a good heart, and loved everyone. She was a loving mother and grandmother who will be sorely missed.

Leaving to cherish her memory are her children, Jackie Ronald Cook Jr., and wife, Mary, of Pikeville, and April Edwards, and husband, Jack, of Supply; brother, Buddy Simmons of Boiling Spring Lakes; five grandchildren, Cassidy, Chris, Kayleigh, Dylan and Colton; numerous nieces, nephews and cousins; and her longtime friends, Lloyd McCausley and Cheryl Kemp.

The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, June 10, at Peacock-Newnam & White Funeral and Cremation Service, Southport. Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, June 11, at Peacock-Newnam & White Funeral Service Chapel.
