Mary Lou Willrett
Mary Lou Willrett, 86, of DeWitt, died Thursday, July 13, 2017, at Westwing Place in DeWitt.

Mary Lou was born Aug. 29, 1930, to Walter and Gertrude Campbell Olson in Forest City. She graduated from Forest City High School in 1948. She married William Richard Willrett on Aug. 21, 1950, in Forest City. She was the office manager for Federal Land Bank in DeWitt for many years.  Mary Lou was proud of the fact that she never had to apply for a job; she was always asked.

Mary Lou loved playing bridge, going to the casino, and keeping a beautiful flower garden. After she retired, she enjoyed the warm winters in Phoenix, Arizona, and returned to DeWitt in the spring.

She is survived by her husband, Bill; three children, Doug (Cindy) Willrett of Cross Plains, Wisconsin, Debra (Douglas Boyle) Willrett of Palo Alto, California, and Daryl Willrett of Clinton; seven grandchildren, Mason, Brock, and Grant Willrett, Lauren, Chelsea, and Jeff Young, and Connor Willrett; four great-grandchildren; a brother, Richard Olson; and nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents and a sister, Arline (Donald) Peck.

A private family service will be held later.

Arrangements are in the care of Schultz Funeral Homes.
