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.
