Marcia Lee Willison

March 24, 1936 ~ June 27, 2019 (age 83)

Marcia Lee Willison, age 83, of Lakeview, passed away Thursday evening, June 27, 2019 at her home after a brief illness.  The daughter of Laurel & Marjorie (Cusick) Keyt, she was born on March 24, 1936 in Lakeview.         

On October 16, 1954, in Lakeview, she married Junior H. "Jay" Willison and together they raised two sons, had attended the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Howard City, enjoyed square dancing, and were married for 62 years until Jay passed away on June 3, 2016.  She was also preceded in death by a sister, Constance Fathera.  

Marcia had worked for many years as a medical transcriptionist at the former Kelsey Hospital in Lakeview and at Leesburg Family Medicine in Florida after she and Jay moved there in semi-retirement.  In the early 2000's they returned home to Lakeview and she kept busy by working part-time at J.C. Penney in Greenville, caring for her animals  --  which included countless cats and dogs as well as outdoor wildlife, staying in touch with family and friends on Facebook and Instagram, in addition to  knitting and crocheting.

Surviving are her sons, David Willison of Goodland, Kansas, and Stephen & Joanna Willison of Lakeview;  a daughter-in-law, Carol Willison of Greenville;  grandson, Ryan & Myra Willison of Louisville, Kentucky;  granddaughter, Heather & Al LaLonde of Flagler Beach, Florida;  three great grandchildren, Cheyenne Willison, Carson Willison, and Greyson Peugh;  a sister, Patti & Blaine Blackburn of Alaska, Michigan;  and several nieces and nephews.

The family wishes to thank everyone for your words of comfort. We look forward to the time when "those asleep in the dust of the earth will wake up." Daniel 12:2
