She was preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Rosa Willett, sisters, Allene Willett Perkins and Estelle Willett Swaim, and brothers Thomas Howard Willett and Coy Willett.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrow like a sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul
