    Willie will be missed by all her friends and family in Waterloo Iowa. She was the kindest lady I knew.

    Fred, you have been & are still in our thoughts. Ms. Willie was a sweet lady. We are still at my Mom’s home with her today and will not be able to attend Ms. Willie’s memorial service. Praying for you in these days and the ones to come. ❤️

    I'm so very sorry to hear of Willie's passing. She was one of my mother's (Darlene Moore) favorite people and I have many fond memories of hearing the two of them laughing together while working on Kittrell PTA projects. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
