Sally Ann Willett of Lorena, Texas was born on June 22, 1946 and entered her eternal home on October 15, 2019. Sally loved and served her Lord Jesus her entire life. He gave her a heart for people and she always put others before herself. He especially gave her a heart for children. In addition to raising her own four children, she helped raise countless others in her home daycare and church service. She loved these children who called her Mama Sally and she would often fill up the church van and take them to Sunday School.
On June 8, 1974, Sally went on a blind date with Jerry Willett. By June 15, 1974, she and Jerry knew that they had found the one true love they had both been looking for. After only knowing each other for one week, Jerry asked her to marry him, and on September 13, 1974 they were married and never separated for the next 45 years. Their four children gave them ten beautiful grandchildren, Sally gave her grandchildren her whole heart. She did whatever it took to make her grandchildren feel loved and if you knew Sally longer than five minutes, you knew all of their names and had seen pictures of each one of them. Sally was a longtime member of Family of Faith Church of the Nazarene and Community Fellowship Church of the Nazarene.
She was preceded in death by her father, Emmitt F. Waskom; mother, Bonnie J. Waskom; brothers, E. Frank Waskom Jr., Carl J. Waskom; sister, Brenda G. Rhodes; nephew, Chris Waskom; niece, Charlotte Moore.
Sally is survived by her husband, Jerry; daughters, Karrie Horn and husband Paul, Katrina Reeves and husband Jeremy, Bonnie-Marie Eyre and husband Matthew; son, Terry Willett and wife Crystal; brothers, Curtis Waskom and wife Sandy, Johnny Waskom and wife Amy; sisters-in-law, Paula Swinburn and husband Dale; Melba Hicks, Joyce Waskom; six nephews; three nieces; nine grandsons; and one granddaughter.
Funeral services will be 10:00 AM, Tuesday, October 22, 2019 at Community Fellowship Church of the Nazarene, 2001 N. Valley Mills Dr., Waco, with Pastor Judy Castro officiating. Burial will follow at 2:00 PM at Central Texas State Veteran’s Cemetery in Killeen. The family will receive visitors 5-7:00 PM Monday, October 21, 2019 at Pecan Grove Funeral Home, 3124 Robinson Dr., Waco.

Sally was a great Christian Lady, not only that I was blessed to have her as my cousin.No better if it was a question on the Lord or our Family history she was able to tell me if not she would look it up. I Love all of the Family she has bought in to the Family. I Love each one of you. I thought it was neat that Sally and I married with the Same name Jerry you are so great and strong man,I’m glad that you are my cousin through marriage.But without marriage I would still would love having you in my Family.And Terry I can never have the words to tell you how much you mean to me not only bringing Sally back to us and helping Patrick to find his wife Audrey.Sally was a great Lady and I’ll always will have her in my
heartland we will see her again.

I am sorry to hear about Sally’s passing but I rejoice knowing she is at home with The Lord. I know that Jerry and the family will miss her as well as her church family. Sally would always brighten your day anytime you would be around her. Sally and I knew each other as teenagers up in Indiana when my Dad would be preaching in revival meetings at churches in the area where Sally’s family lived. Then we both ended up in Texas and years later we ran across each other, “small world”. I know I will miss her smile and laughter at our Tuesday lunches with her, Jerry and mutual friends. Her friend, Paul E Dulin
