Marjorie Annette Willis

 

It is with great sadness that the family of Marjorie Annette (Page) Willis, age 90, announce her passing early Thursday morning, December 8, 2022, at the Belmont Village Senior Living Green Hills in Nashville, TN.

 

Annette was born March 6, 1932, in Edison, GA to the late Mr. Benjamin Franklin Page and Mrs. Beatrice Gertrude Duke. She was raised by her mother and the late, Mr. Quenton Williamson, to be a loving and caring woman, always giving her time to others, incorporating that into her Christian life as a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.

 

Annette was married to the late Air Force Chief Master Sergeant (Retired) Winburn Franklin Willis, on February 28, 1948. During her 67 years of marriage to Winburn, she traveled the world from Bitburg, Germany to Jerusalem, Israel, and as far east as Tokyo, Japan. She was a devoted member of the Edison Baptist Church. She had a long career working at the Edison Textile Mill and Amy Industries in Arlington, GA.

She was also predeceased by her sisters, Louise Page Andrews, Geraldine Blankenship Brockman, Emma Jean Williamson and brother, Mizle “Bubba” Williamson.

Left to cherish her memory are sisters, Melba Vinson (Walter Morse), Claire Smith (Jim), and brother Quenton “Bud” Williamson ( Vickie), sisters- in -law, Sylvia Williamson and  Laura Gunn; brother-in-law, Harris Willis (Emily), her children, Fred Willis (Cheryl), of Gulf Breeze, FL, Dianne Eubanks (Jimmy), of Edison, GA, Mike Willis (Robin) of Athens, AL, and Pattie Imperial (Robert) of Nashville, TN, nine grandchildren,  ten great-grandchildren, two great- great- grandchildren, and many loving nieces and nephews.

For taking special care of their mother, the family would like to thank the caregivers of Willowood Personal Care Home, Edison, GA, Belmont Senior Assisted Living, Nashville, TN, and Caris Healthcare, Nashville, TN.

 

We are happy knowing that the angels have finally rejoined Annette and Winburn, together, again. Goodbye to a wonderful, beautiful, and loving mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend.

 

Visitation will be 10:00 am, Friday, December 16, 2022, at the Edison Baptist Church followed by 11:00 am service with Rev. Keith Gaines officiating.  A graveside service will be held directly after at the Salem Cemetery in Edison, Georgia. Active pallbearers will be Annette’s loving grandchildren. 

 

Annette loved her flowers and her church.  Memorial donations may be made to Edison Baptist Church, P.O. Box 296, Edison, Georgia, 39846.
