Obituary

Diane (Clay) Willis, affectionately known as “Piggy” by her Clay family, was born on April 2, 1951 to the late Edward and Elvesta (Hutch) Clay. Diane peacefully transitioned into eternal life on August 24, 2019 surrounded by her family in the comfort of her home. Diane was raised in church, Phillips Temple CME, alongside her mother, grandmother, and siblings.

Diane attended Whitney High School with dreams of becoming a nurse. Although her dreams of becoming a nurse was not fulfilled, she was a true authentic caregiver. Diane never met a stranger. She loved and welcomed everyone she came in contact with and her doors were always open. Once you met Diane, you became part of her family. Diane’s “job” was raising her children, grandchildren, and everyone else's children. She loved cooking, shopping and cleaning.

Diane was preceded in death by both parents, Edward and Elvesta Clay; paternal and maternal grandparents; husband and best friend, Carl L. Willis; grandson, Keven Johnson; brother, David Clay and sister, Debra Clay.

To: The Family of Diane Clay Willis,
With Our Prayers and Deepest Sympathy,
Thinking of you and wishing you peace and comfort as you remember;
The joy of Diane forget all the pain.
Let all your tears, fall like rain
Remember the fun, the happy times past
The sadness you're feeling won't always last.
May God be your strength and your guide.


The Family of Margaret L. Harper,
RIP
