Obituary

Agnes Elizabeth Wayson, 91, of Lothian, Maryland, was received by the Lord on December 5, 2018 after a brief illness.
She is pre-deceased by her adoring husband, George Vernon Wayson, Sr., her eldest son, George Vernon Wayson, Jr., her sister Carol Hyde, a brother Earl Stallings, her grandaughter Bridget Catherine Wayson and a great-granddaughter Ashley Shae Donaldson. She is survived by her brother Joseph "Bubba" Stallings, her four loving sons, Richard Alan of Venice, Florida, Samuel Leo of Lothian, Morgan Wayne of Lothian and Donald Ray of Huntingtown, Maryland. She was the doting grandmother to eight grandchildren: Chris Wayson and his wife Kathleen of Bonita Springs, Florida, Amy Comolli and her husband David Comolli of Millville, Delaware, Jodi Wayson Gott and her husband Jason Gott of Chesapeake Beach, Heather Wayson of Forestville, Donald Ray Wayson Jr. of North Beach, Timothy Wayson of St. Leonard, Noah Wayson of Huntingtown and Mayki Ray Wayson of Huntingtown. She was also the doting grandmother to her eleven great-grandchildren.
Born in Bristol, Maryland on December 23, 1926, Agnes was the daughter of Sarah Edna Catterton and Samuel Leo Gibson. Married in 1947 to George Vernon Wayson, Sr., Agnes would go on to raise five sons whom she adored. She was a homemaker and worked helping in the family Bingo and restaurant business.
Agnes was a kind and gracious soul and she was admired and adored by all who were fortunate to know her. She harbored no ill-will toward others and had a very warm and charitable heart. When not busy helping in the family business or spending time with her beloved family, Agnes enjoyed playing her favorite card game, Rummy 500, taking trips to the casino, playing bingo and helping most anyone in a time of need. She was very quick-witted and astute. She "didn't miss a thing" and had "ears like a hawk." She was the veritable rock -- the pillar on which her family leaned. She was the epitome of dignity and poise. She moved with an ease of elegance and decorum. Nearly to the end of her life here on earth, before dementia began to set in and steal her zest, Agnes stayed active, self-sufficient and never had time for anything other than giving of her gentle heart and wise words. In her life and, now in her passing, Agnes will remain the adored light and revered spirit whose essence shall never cease.
