Ennis Regional Medical Center Receives Donation to Auxiliary in Memory of Jo Wilson

Ennis, TX– Ennis Regional Medical Center recently received a generous donation from a long-standing volunteer and community activist, Harrell Wilson.  Harrell donated an ice machine to the Ennis Regional Medical Center Auxiliary to be used in the Emergency Department in memory of his late wife, Jo Wilson.

“Jo passed away on September 10, 2015,” Wilson stated.  “This ice machine is given in her memory for all the good care she received at Ennis Regional Medical Center as a patient. I recommend this hospital to anyone.  The people of Ennis should be proud and thankful they have this great community hospital.”

Mr.and Mrs. Wilson were married for 47 years.  Mr. Wilson resides in Whitney, Texas, where he lived with Jo their entire married life.  Mr. Wilson works with the ERMC Auxiliary four hours each week.

Jo Wilson was born in Hill County and was a devoted mother, wife, and Christian who loved her God and her family.  She loved to quilt and spent many hours ministering to her church family through an ongoing greeting card ministry.  Jo worked for 45 years at a local drug store in Whitney and raised their three children. 

“We are so thankful for Mr. Wilson’s generous donation to the ERMC Auxiliary in memory of his beloved wife, Jo.  The ice machine will provide great service to those who enter our doors every day through the ED and to the employees and families.  Our number one priority is providing quality care and giving comfort to those who need our services.  This donation will certainly help us in caring for our patients and their families,” said Edwina Miner, Chief Nursing Officer at Ennis Regional Medical Center.  “We are so grateful for his generosity.”
