BEEVILLE – Olga L. Willis, 83, of Beeville, passed away on February 14, 2022. Mrs. Willis was born on September 9, 1938, to Lee and Elida P. Ramirez. She married Sam J. Willis, Jr. on April 9, 1961.

     She is preceded in death by her parents; her beloved son, Michael “Mike” Willis and one nephew, Ryan Hansson.

     She was the first of her family as a young Mexican American to graduate high school and attend college.
