Evalina was born in Aurora, Missouri on November 4, 1937 to Herbert and Jewell Glen Williams. After completing high school, she moved to St. Louis to attend nurse’s training at Missouri Baptist Hospital.

She continued her education to earn a BS in nursing, then a Master’s Degree so that she could be a nursing instructor which is the job she most enjoyed and for which she won several awards throughout her career while at Central Methodist University, The University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and Missouri Southern State College. Willie was an active church member throughout her life. She enjoyed traveling, reading, quilting, spending time with her family, friends, and her ladies’ groups (at First Baptist Church, the quilting groups, and the Y water aerobics group). She was an excellent caregiver for several extended family members, as well as for her husband. Willie and Gene were married for 62 years at the time of his passing in July 2021. She was also preceded in death by her parents, and 5 older siblings (Harold, Gene, Roy, Tom, and Elsa). She is survived by daughter Kenda (John) Madany, and son Douglas (Kim) Shippee, her 8 grandchildren: Jonathan (Courtney) Madany, Kaylyn Madany, Taylor Shippee, Joshua Madany, Rafe Diaz, Michael Shippee, Sarah Madany, and Gabrielle Diaz, and her two great-granchildren: Kinsey Shippee and Colby Madany. She is also survived by 5 siblings: Willodean, Charles (Delores), Rebekah (Rex), Martin (Garlene), and Glenna and numerous nieces and nephews. Services are being planned for Willie in mid-January where she will be interred with her family in Aurora, Missouri.
