We have gathered today under the wings of our Heavenly Father to give honor, praise and thanks to God for the life and memory of Sister Louise Hayes Wilson.

“Nanny” was born on August 17, 1937 in Amelia County, Virginia. She was the first sibling born to the late Deacon Arthur, Sr. and Deaconess Bertha Booker Hayes.
At an early age “Nanny” confessed, was baptized, and joined the Mt. Level Baptist Church where she remained a dedicated, loyal,and faithful member until declining health. She served on the Usher’s Ministry, Missionary Ministry and was a singing angel on the Choir at Mt. Level. She had a voice that would touch your heart and soul. Can’t you see her singing in the heavenly choir, “Showers of Blessings”.
Nanny loved flowers and always had a beautiful flower garden. She also loved her grandchildren and great grands, and anyone she knew, they would tell you the same. She loved them so much. She was fond of hats, just like her Mother, “Ma Bert”. Oh how stunning they always looked.
