Bess Wilson, 87, of Corbin, Kentucky, passed away Friday, March 22, 2024, at her home.  Born January 21, 1937, in Bledsoe (Harlan County), Kentucky, she was the daughter of the late James S. Tolliver and Elizabeth Vanover Tolliver.

In addition to her father and mother, Bess was preceded in death by three brothers and one sister: Delmar Tolliver and his wife Sue, Ruth Rose and her husband James, Glen Tolliver and his wife Vera Lavonne, and Eugene Tolliver.

Bess was a member of Bledsoe Baptist Church for 75 years.

Bess was a loving, caring lady.  She had a special fondness for children and the elderly.  She enjoyed giving to others, especially making candy for her family and friends.  Two of her most enjoyable pastimes were sitting outside and watching the birds, often with neighbors, and attending to her flowers.  She also enjoyed fishing with her husband as far away as Canada.

Bess was dearly loved and will be deeply missed.
