Obituary

Cordel Octavious Reid-Wilson, age 89, of Cincinnati, OH, passed away on June 6, 2022, at her residence. 

Cordel was born on July 21, 1932, in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica W. I. to Lester and Elsie (Forrester) Simpson. In 1968, Cordel moved to the United States, where she continued to raise her family in Cincinnati, Ohio.  

Known as Mother Wilson, she joined the NewLife Outreach Ministries under the leadership of Dr. Osborne Richards in the mid 80's. She served nearly 30 years in many capacities. She was a powerful intercessor, sung in the choir, was part of the nursing home and outreach ministries. She cooked many wonderful meals for her pastor and his family. She also loved to surprise her church family with good food, too! She loved doing whatever she could to build up the kingdom of God. She was serious about souls, spending long hours praying with individuals. She had a special gift in working the altar to help many pray through to receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Mother Wilson was a mother in Zion, filled with the words of wisdom to lift your spirit. She attended and graduated from the NewLife Bible School of the Ministry in 1988. Mother Wilson exemplified the agape love for all her spiritual children, always having encouraging words and a smile to help them on their Christian journey. 

Cordel will be deeply missed by her loving children, Keith, Maureen, Dorette "Jean", Marthica "Verna", Elaine "Carmen", Avis, and Worrell, and their spouses, many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.
