Elizabeth “Betty” Ann Willis

Elizabeth “Betty” Ann Willis, age 84 of Gainesville, FL, formerly of Beckley, West Virginia, went to be with the Lord on November 25, 2021. Mrs. Willis was born October 16, 1937, to Cecil Guy Pittman and Clarice Vipperman Pittman.

Betty was a devout Christian who loved her family, friends, and church immensely. She lived by faith showing great strength as she fought a 16-year battle with cancer. As long time Publix employee, retiring after 24 years with the company, she made many friends and always tried to bless anyone she could along the way. She was truly an extraordinary woman and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Harold Willis, brother Michael Pittman (Vassie), daughter Carol Ann Willis, and son David Willis. She is survived by her son Allen Willis Sr. and daughter Anna James (Paul), daughter-in-law Kirsten (David), grandchildren Allen Willis Jr. (Amanda), Daniel Willis, Austin Willis, Taylor Willis, and great grandchildren Allen Willis III and Adley Willis.

Celebration of life services will be held at 4:00 p.m. Saturday December 4th, with a viewing from 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., at Countryside Baptist Church, Gainesville, FL. Betty absolutely loved flowers, but loved the Lord most. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to one of the ministries at Countryside Baptist Church.
