Martha D’Abate Willis

Nov 29, 1948 – Sep 03, 2019

Martha D’Abate Willis, 70, left us, her husband; Alfred Willis; son Vance Willis; daughter-in-law Emilie; and grandchildren James, Priscilla, Peter and Blade on Tuesday, September 3, 2019.

A lifelong native of Goochland County, Martha graduated from Goochland High School with honors in 1967. She was a devoted wife and wonderful mother with a generous disposition. Martha loved the outdoors, pets, feeding and watching her birds. Her humor and sharp wit was always appreciated. She thought of others before herself and those close to her knew it. Martha will be greatly missed.

She wanted a small intimate graveside service with only immediate family and closest friends.

    So sorry to learn of Martha’s passing. We were school classmates from day 1 of first grade through graduation from Goochland High School. Martha was such a talented artist even from an early age. In recent years I enjoyed running into her at Food Lion where we would catch each other up on news of our families and our classmates. I am grateful to have known Martha for so many years. To her family I send my deepest sympathy. You are right that she will be greatly missed.
