Russell Springs, KY - Della Rexroat, age 70, a life-long resident of the Gosser Ridge Community of Russell County, passed away on Sunday, April 9, 2017 in Louisville, Kentucky after a long-term illness.
Della was born on March 20, 1947 to the late George Theodore Wilson and Mary M. McGowan Wilson. Soon after graduating from Russell County High School in 1965, Della married Lyle Green Rexroat of Casey County. A few years later, Della welcomed her son, Mark Lee Rexroat currently residing in Dallas, Texas.
Della was a loving wife, mother, sister and aunt to many nieces and nephews. She was a loyal member of Cedar Spring Baptist Church in Windsor and spent many years traveling throughout Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio, along with her husband, as the alto of The Joy Bells gospel quartet. Della loved being in the outdoors, tending to her garden and cooking. But more than those she loved sharing the fruits of her labor with her family and friends. She will be remembered by all those who knew her as having a kind, gentle and loving heart for all those around her.
In addition to her husband and son, Della is survived by her twin sister, Ella Hainey of Russell Springs, a brother, Garlin (and Jane) Wilson of Russell Springs; a sister, Ruth (and Ted) Netherton of Batesville, Indiana; a sister-in-law, Wilma Wilson of Faubush; and a brother-in-law, Doyle Rexroat of Russell Springs.
