Mrs. Sybil Long Willett, simple but elegant lady, born April 2, 1925 went to her heavenly home and Saviour Jesus Christ on May 30, 2020.
She was preceded in death by her mother Lena Long and father, John Russell Long, husband, Hal Harley Willett; sister, Gray Tate; and son, Phyleckster William Willett.
She is survived by her oldest son, Hal Hurley Willett II (Mike) and wife Sandy of Chino Valley, AZ; daughter, Bryn Starnes and husband Wesley of Granite Falls; daughter-in-law, Donna Willett of Boone, NC; son, Dr. Ensor Transfeldt and wife Grace of Portland, Oregon. Also surviving is grandson, Gabriel Long Smith and wife Jen of Huntersville; two great-grandsons, Gabriel Long Smith II and Jayland Starnes; and granddaughter, Ashley Starnes of Morganton.
Sybil was raised in Hickory, NC and attended college at Lenoir Rhyne, where she met the love of her life. They were soon married with the onset of World War II. They had been married sixty-eight years. She had a big heart for the Lord and seeking much Bible knowledge. She smiled a lot and loved a lot. Extended family and friends will greatly miss her, but one day will see her again. A special thanks to all the caregivers, Denise Manus, Dianne Cooke, Becky Starnes, Tammy Phillips, Brenda Perry, Misty Kanupp, Debbie Lafone, Sierra Anderson, and Darlene Poovey for providing such loving care to our mother. The family holds a great appreciation for the compassion and comforting care from Caldwell Hospice and Palliative Care.
A graveside service will be held on Monday, June 1, 2020 at 3:00 PM at Catawba Memorial Park.
Mackie Funeral Service is serving the Willett family.
