Mary Rose Willis, 93, of Evansville, Indiana went to be with the Lord on November 21, 2021.  Mary was born on July 14, 1928 in Haubstadt, Indiana to George Becker and Gladys Becker-Bailey.

Mary loved the Lord.  She was very active at Grace Baptist church for many years, especially in the food bank and clothing bank.  She did everything that the church asked her to do.  Mary loved her lunch dates every Friday with her friends.  She would do everything she could to help anyone in need.  She had the biggest heart.  She enjoyed traveling and her favorite place was Florida, especially Treasure Island and Panama City Beach. Mary was so kind, caring, and passionate.  She was such a loving mother and grandmother.
