Polly Stone Willett

November 29, 2018

Polly Stone Willett, born October 2, 1930, died on Thursday, November 29, 2018. The third of four children of Frank Milton Stone and Blanche Moon Stone, she was born and raised in Siler City, North Carolina. Polly was a lifelong member of Love's Creek Baptist Church in Siler City and her faith was evident in her daily life as a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, grand-mother, great-grandmother and friend. She always had a twinkle in her eye and loved to laugh with her treasured family and many special friends.

Throughout her life, Mrs. Willett was devoted to her family. She was married to the love of her life, Ernest Franklin "Dick" Willett for over fifty years. Together they owned and operated Willett's American Auto Repair in Siler City and were beloved by so many they met and helped in their business. Their surviving daughter, Katherine Willett O'Briant, was their pride and joy. Mrs. Willett is also survived by her grandchildren, William Spencer Hackney II and his wife Tara and Mary Katherine Hackney Stukes and her husband Taylor; her great-grandchildren Nathan Spencer Hackney, Christian Willett Hackney, Samuel Justice Hackney, Anika Star Hackney, Edward Taylor Stukes, Jr., Willett Spencer Stukes, and Anderson Hudnall Stukes; and her brother, Dennis Stone and his wife Betty. She is preceded in death by her husband, her parents, her sisters Jean Stone Gaines and Mamie Stone Collins, and her special niece Pat Buckner.

The family wants to thank the dedicated and tireless staff at Heartfields of Cary for their faithful care. During these final years, the staff and caregivers at Heartfields have become a part of the extended family. The family also is deeply grateful for the loving presence of Leslie Rhodes of Transitions Life Care.

A celebration of Mrs. Willet's life was held on Saturday, December 1 at Love's Creek Baptist Church, 1745 East 11th Street in Siler City and interment followed at the Love's Creek Cemetery.
