Linda Kay Willis, loving wife, mother, and grandmother, daughter and sister went to be with her Lord and Savior Monday, Oct. 28, 2019 at the age of 68 after a nearly two-year battle with brain cancer.
Linda was born March 10, 1951 to Aubrey Moses Sutton and Rose Medeiros Sutton, in Edinburg. She later moved to East Bernard with her family in 1964. Linda graduated from East Bernard High School in 1969 and later attended Wharton County Junior College, where she met her future husband, Walter M. Willis, Jr. They were married in 1973 and later had their daughter, Amanda.
Linda enjoyed music; she played the piano and sang in the church choir at Katy Bible Church for over 20 years. She played French horn in the East Bernard High School Marching and Concert Band winning several competitions as well. Linda loved to attend Texas A&M football games with Walter throughout the years and was nicknamed the “12th Woman” always yelling for the team in true Aggie spirit.
Linda was always known for her contagious laugh and smile and always brought happiness to those around her. She was probably most known for her servant’s heart. She set the example by being a devoted wife and mother, homeschooling her daughter and being involved in many church activities throughout the years. She later worked with her husband, Walter, as senior accountant, even continuing through her recent illness until a few months ago.
Linda was preceded in death by her father Aubrey Moses Sutton and brother Gary Wayne Sutton. She is survived by her loving husband of 45 years, Walter M. Willis, Jr., mother Rose Sutton, daughter Amanda Everitt, son-in-law Michael Everitt, granddaughter Victoria Everitt, and sister Elizabeth Sutton.
Visitation was held Saturday, Nov. 2 between 12-2 p.m., followed by a Celebration of Life Service that began at 2 p.m. at Katy Bible Church, 2500 Avenue D, in Katy.
Flowers may be sent to Katy Bible Church, 2500 Avenue D., Katy, 77493. Donations may be made to the Music Ministry at Katy Bible Church, 2500 Avenue D., Katy, 77493 or to Houston Methodist Hospital, Neurological Institute, Center of Excellence, www.houstonmethodist.org/giving/.
