Obituary

Loren K. Wilson, 81, of St. Joseph, passed away on Friday, January 15, 2021 at Spectrum Health Lakeland. A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Friday, January 22, 2021 at 1 PM at Trinity Lutheran Church, 613 Court St., St. Joseph, with Pastor Michael Roth officiating. Burial will follow at Riverview Cemetery. Friends may visit with the family one hour prior to the service at the church. Out of respect for the family and guests in attendance masks and proper social distancing will be required and we ask to eliminate congregating in the narthex area. Memorial contributions may be made to Trinity Lutheran Church & School, http://www.trinitystjoe.org/church/donations, or Berrien County Cancer Service, https://bccancerservice.org/ways-to-give. Those wishing to leave an online condolence may do so at www.starks-menchinger.com.

Loren was born on May 6, 1939, in St. Joseph to Harry & Iva (Smith) Wilson. He graduated from St. Joseph High School in 1958. Following high school, Loren enlisted in the United Stated Army where he proudly served our country. After 45 years, Loren retired from Bosch of Lincoln Township. On August 13, 1966, Loren married the love of his life, Helen Ziegert, at Trinity Lutheran Church. Loren enjoyed spending time outdoors fishing and hunting for pheasant’s and turkeys. He also spent the mornings with his friends having coffee at the old Dale’s Doughnuts and, more recently, McDonald’s. Being the proud father he was, Loren loved cheering on his son, Mark, while he played basketball and soccer. He was known for being a perfectionist when it came to the look of his pristine yard and spotless car, never having a blade of grass or speck of dust out of place. He was a proud member of the Stevensville American Legion Post 568, Trinity Lutheran Church, and very active in attending his 1958 class reunion activities. Loren was an incredible man with a personality and smile that would light up a room; he will truly be missed by all who knew him.

Loren is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Helen; son, Mark Wilson; siblings, Gordon Wilson & Patricia Hanner; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, Harry & Iva; and his brother, Richard.

I will always remember Mr Wilson's sweet smile and our wonderful conversations when he would come into Martins for groceries or maybe just lottery tickets, He was always a bright light!

So very sorry to hear of Woody's passing. We always loved seeing him when we were in St. Joe and he would stop at my Mom's on Washington, just to say hello!!

Loren, known to me as a child, as Mr. Wilson, was always so nice to me and my siblings. He was a great neighbor to our family!
May God bring you and your loved ones comfort during this heartbreaking time.
