Obituary for Helen Anne Willis

Helen Anne Willis, age 74, passed from this world to take her place in God's Kingdom on June 13, 2018 at home surrounded by her family. Born in Baltimore, MD, Helen grew up in Wilmington, DE. She was employed by the E.I. Dupont Company where she met her husband Dennis.

Following a decision to move south, Helen landed "temporarily" in Knoxville in 1971 where she resided the rest of her life. In Knoxville, she took up and became an avid golfer. She won numerous ladies club championships at Cedar Hills CC, Deane Hill CC and Oak Ridge CC. During this period Helen also worked and retired from Sears Automotive Center, West Town. When her interest in golf began to wane, she turned her interest to family, in particular her Grandchildren and later Great Grandchildren. She became the "Grandmom" and "Grammy" that all children wish for. Helen was the true matriach of our family and will be greatly missed as such.

Helen is preceded in death by her parents, Donald Sr. and Jane Eyre of Knoxville.

She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Dennis Willis, Sr.; daughters, Nancy Elfvin and husband Rick of Knoxville, Christine Witt and husband Bill of Knoxville, Susan Fenn and husband Steve of Raleigh, NC; son, Dennis Willis, Jr. of Nashville, TN; numeous grandchildren and great grandchildren; brother, Donald Eyre Jr. of Medford, NJ and best friend of over 60 years Bonnie Smith of Williamsburg, VA.

The family will receive friends at the Click Funeral Home Middlebrook Chapel at 2:00pm on Saturday June 16th with a short memorial service to follow at 3:30pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation to the charity of your choice in her honor.

Click Funeral Home, 9020 Middlebrook Pike, Knoxville is serving the Willis family.
