Margarethe Maria Willis

January 5, 1929 ~ July 29, 2022 (age 93)


Margarethe Maria Willis, 93, passed away on July 29, 2022, in Batesville, Arkansas. She was born January 5, 1929, in Buchenau, Silesia (Poland) to the late Victor and Maria Ultrata. Margarethe was always involved in her church, no matter where she and her husband had moved to. She supported the military and was always lending a helping hand. She enjoyed cooking and making jam. Christmas was her favorite holiday; she always decorated her house inside and out for everyone to see. Above all else, Margarethe will be missed by all those who knew and loved her.

Margarethe is survived by her sisters, Rosel Egle and Monika Reichert. She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Charles R. Willis; and sister, Christel Koletzko.

Special thanks to St. Mary’s Catholic Church for always bringing her joy and to her sitters who became like family: Luz, Joy, Mike, Adriana, Christina, Theresa, Brenda, Teana, and Lily.

There will be a Visitation at Willis Funeral Service Chapel on Tuesday, August 2, 2022, from 6PM-8PM. St. Mary’s Catholic Church will host the Rosary/Funeral Mass on Wednesday, August 3, 2022. There will be a Viewing at 10AM. The Rosary will take place at 10:30 AM, with the Funeral Mass to follow at 11AM, officiated by Father Jon Miskin.
