Gloria "Jean" Johnson Wilkes

October 31, 1940 — January 23, 2018

Mrs. Gloria “Jean” Johnson Wilkes, age 77, of Acworth, Georgia and formerly of Rome, Georgia passed away Tuesday, January 23, 2018.

The epitome of selflessness and generosity, Jean devoted herself to the job of being a loving wife, a devoted mother, and a doting grandmother. She loved her family fiercely, and nothing brought her more pride or gave her more joy. She will always be remembered for her strength, her independence, her humor, her beauty, her grace, and her faith. While her family is heartbroken by their tremendous loss, they rejoice that she is now with her Heavenly Father and her beloved husband, Lawrence, who preceded her in death.

She is also preceded in death by her parents, Edna and Clarence Johnson, and her brother, Doug Johnson.

Mrs. Wilkes is survived by her children: Lawren and Larry Dentmon, of Cedartown, Lyn and Jody Collier of Acworth, GA, Greg and Dodie Wilkes of Lake Wylie, SC, Anna and Mark Smith of Charlotte NC; nine grandchildren; six great grandchildren; sister, Peggy and husband Wayne Beck of Cedartown. Several nieces and nephews also survive.

Funeral service for Mrs. Gloria “Jean” Wilkes will be held Thursday, January 25, 2018 at 2:30 PM in the chapel of Smith & Miller Funeral with the Rev. Wayne Benefield officiating.

The family will be receiving friends at the Smith & Miller Funeral Home prior to the service from 1:00 PM until 2:30 PM. Interment will follow in Northview Cemetery.

The following gentlemen will serve as pallbearers: Phil Wilkes, Jake Collier, Mark Smith, Garrett Cyr, Zack Dentmon and Josh Dentmon.

The family has requested that contributions be made in her memory to the Memorial Fund at First Baptist Church, P.O. Box 720, Cedartown, Georgia 30125.

The Smith & Miller Funeral Home of Cedartown is honored to serve the family of Mrs. Gloria “Jean” Wilkes.
