Sewing 18

Marcella "Marcie" (Waite) Willis

February 26, 1941 ~ February 12, 2021 (age 79)


Marcella “Marcie” Willis, 79, of Williston, passed away on Friday, February 12, 2021 at the Crystal Coast Hospice House in Newport.

Marcie was a lifelong member of the Latter-Day Saints – Harkers Island Ward. She was a gifted seamstress, and in front of the sewing machine with a smile on her face is where you find her most days. Though she loved sewing, her greatest passion in life was her family, especially her grand and great grandchildren.

The family will celebrate her life in private.

Marcie is survived by her daughters, Susan Ramsey, and Velvet Gillikin; grandchildren, Jessica, Amanda, Tabitha, Nicky and his wife Nicole, Alicia, and Kayla; and twelve great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Rayneal Willis; parents, James “Jimmy” and Lotte Waite; sons, Stephen and Jay Bird Willis; brothers, Jim Boy and Tooter Waite; and sister, Geneva Van Buran.
