Coy Wilson

LEAGUE CITY - Mrs. Coy Wilson passed away from this life Tuesday morning, December 20, 2023, in League City.

Coy was born on January 21, 1941, in Jacksonville, Florida to Arnold Coy and Daisy Margaret (Hatcher) Ward. The family relocated to Texas and Coy graduated from Ball High School. In 1968, she married John Herman Wilson, Jr. and they shared 37 years together before his passing in 2005. Coy worked for the Marine Biomedical Institute at UTMB for over 20 years. It was there that she met her next husband, Kenneth Leroy Johnson. The two were married in 2007 – sharing 16 years of companionship before his passing earlier this year. Coy took life in stride, enjoyed her time with family and loved telling jokes. She loved having a good time and listening to Bob Seger songs. She enjoyed the fresh air of a bike ride and tending to her garden. Some of her most cherished memories were of the yearly trips to North Carolina. She loved visiting with her sister there at the family vacation home.   

She was preceded in death by her parents, Arnold and Daisy (Hatcher) Ward; husbands, John Wilson, Jr. and Kenneth Johnson.

Survivors include her sons, John Wilson and wife, Dina, Weldon Kovacevich and wife, Sonia; grandchildren, Morgan Wilson, Meredith Wilson, Marlin Kovacevich, Coral Kovacevich.
