Willa Mae Hill Evans transitioned to her brand new life on July 14, 2020 at 8:38 AM.
Willa Mae was born on May 15, 1935 to the late Rena Shelby Hill and William Hill, Sr. She graduated from the old Douglass High School, and after graduating, she became a caregiver for 50 years. She retired on July 2, 2020.
Willa Me was a Servant Leader to God, her church, and her family.
Her personality was infectious, and anyone who met her loved her from the start. Her words of inspiration, wisdom, and fun personality made her stand above the rest. She always had something funny to say to bring a smile or laughter to the next person. She was organized and excellent at money management. She lived by the principle, "Live within your means." She’s the only person I know who could take five dollars at the start of the month and turn it into fifty by the end of the month.
Family meant everything to her. She was the glue that kept our family together. She believed in unity and family love. She always made sure family celebrated together, from Christmas parties at Uncle Bugs, my birthday parties, and traveling hundreds of miles on a greyhound bus to attend a family reunion. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. She looked forward to family vacations every year to Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
She loved the color green because it reminded her of the beauty of the earth and money.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister, Anna Frances Taylor, and a brother, Raymond Hill.
She leaves to cherish her memory, her only child Felicia (Jonathan) Hulon; one grandson, Evan Anton Lindsay; one granddaughter, Shelby Elise Lindsay; a sister, Emma Washington; a brother, William Hill, Jr; and two bonus grandchildren; as well as a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives and friends.
Mama, I can still hear you singing Brand New Life. On July 14, 2020 you moved from your old home and old friends to your brand new life.
Mama, Nana, Aunt Mae, Auntie, Mae Mae, you will be missed dearly but never forgotten.
Hawkins Taylor Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
