Obituary

Willa J. Bray

July 20, 1954 – April 1, 2022

 

Willa Jean Bray, age 67 of Temperance, passed away the afternoon of Friday, April 1, 2022, at the ProMedica Regional Hospital of Toledo.

 

Born July 20, 1954, in Selma, California. She was the daughter of the late William and Louise (Donaldson) Hall. As a child, her family moved to the Monroe area, where she was raised. Willa graduated from Monroe High School in 1973.

 

Willa met the love of her life: Seymour Bray Jr. They got married on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 1991, under a waterfall on the Main Island of Hawaii.  They raised their family and spent over 31 wonderful years together.

 

Willa was a member of the River of Life Community Church of Dundee. In her free time, she liked to go shopping at unique places like Shipshewana. Willa also enjoyed working on her home projects or remodeling. She was always proud of any accomplishment that they completed on their home, like their new porches they added on.

 

Most importantly, Willa adored spending quality time with her family, especially her grandkids. They were her world to spoil and treasure. She was big on taking many pictures and home videos of her family to document the happy times spent. Willa also had a soft spot for her beloved dogs. She will be deeply missed and cherished in the hearts of her loved ones.

 

Beloved wife of Seymour Bray Jr. Loving mother of Scott (Kim) LePage, Windy (Jeremy) Cousino, Lonnie (Kathy) Bray, and Ryan (Kristen) Bray. Dearest grandmother of 10 grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Dear sister of Katherine Hardy and Kathy (Bill) Watson. Also survived by many nieces and nephews.

 

In addition to her parents, Willa was preceded in death by sister: Debra Clark, and brother-in-law: Pug Hardy.
