    Wayne Allen “Winnie” Wilson, age 57, of Lamar, Missouri, passed away Monday evening, February 13, 2017, at Freeman West Hospital in Joplin.

     Wayne was born November 29, 1959 in Broken Bow, Nebraska, one of the four children of George and Josephine (Wright) Wilson.  He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Barry Wilson; and a sister, Betty Wilson.

I went to school with Mike and Wayne. We moved away when I was 12. But can remember the boys. Sending prayers to the family
