So sorry Danny
Phyliss and Brandon and Brian
About the passing of
Your mother
And your grandmother boys
I didn’t get to know her
But knowing what a good family you are
I’m sure she was a great mother and grandmother

Without a doubt, Willine was a special unique lady. No matter what she was going through she always had a laugh and a grin to share. She would light up a room with her presence and lifted the spirits of everyone she came into contact with. You couldn't help but smile when you were in her company. We loved her so much! She will be missed!

I will always remember the vigor of life that she had. She was a special person without a doubt. Aunt Willine could always get you to laugh and put a smile on your face. We should all enjoy life as much as she did. To Danny, I don't believe there ever was a time that I talked to her that she wasn't proud of you. Thanks for all that you did for her.

Willine was always so caring and welcoming to me when I went to her home - and asking about me when I wasn’t able to come.
And, I know she was that way with many other people as she would receive calls from friends and family all throughout the day.

Wilene was so very kind. She always expressed appreciation for the senior activities at church and always seemed to enjoy them.

Heaven gained another angel. My grandma was one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever met, she would do anything for anybody. She was a follower of Christ so I know we will be together again one day. I will cherish every day we got to spend together the last 28 years, before she got sick she always wanted to go fishing with me. The picture below was the last fish she caught when we went fishing four years ago before she got sick. I love you grandma and I know you’re in a better place now and will never have to suffer again.
