Barbara Ann Willis

September 9, 1934 - July 2, 2020

Barbara Ann Willis, age 85, passed away peacefully on July 2, 2020. She was born September 9, 1934, in Houston, Texas, to William Robert Morin, Jr. and Mable Beatrice Morin. She was married to Clyde C. Willis for 35 years, who preceded her in death in 2001.

Barbara was a spirited, loving mother and grandmother who loved her time with her grandchildren, antique shopping and her poodle, Pepe. She loved growing up in Houston with her sisters, cousins, and friends but always had a special place in her heart for the Bolivar Peninsula, where she raised two sons and made great memories with her family. She will be dearly missed and will always have a special place in the hearts of all who crossed her path.

Barbara was preceded in death by her husband, Clyde C. Willis; her parents, Mr. & Mrs. William Robert Morin, Jr.; and two sisters, Elinor Horn and BeBe Grantz.

She is survived by her two sons and their wives, Chris and Crystal Willis of China, Texas and Mark and Tracy Willis of Knoxville, Tennessee; five grandchildren, Macy, Sophia, Mason, Mark Stephen, and Reagan; and many nieces and nephews of whom she loved dearly.

Mrs. Willis will have a graveside service at 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 8, 2020, at Forest Park Lawndale Cemetery, 6900 Lawndale Drive, Houston, under the direction of Broussard’s, 1605 North Major Drive, Beaumont.

Barbara, we hardly had a chance to get to know you. But to have raised two son's the way you did, and must admit, we are particularly found of Mark and how wonderful a mate he has been for our Tracy, no doubt we have shared a common bond. RIP and blessings to your Family.
