Willa Margret Andrews

Willa Margret Davis Andrews, 87, passed away Sept. 22, 2017 at her daughter’s home in Ogden, Utah.  She was born January 24, 1930 in Downey, Idaho, the daughter of Raymond & Margret Elizabeth Price Davis.  She married Odell Alder Andrews on May 2, 1953 in Preston, Idaho.  Their marriage was later solemnized in the Logan Utah Temple.


She loved to read books and newspapers.  She worked for over twenty years as a cook with Weston Elementary and West Side High School.  She then served as the sexton of the Dayton Cemetery for twenty years. 


She was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served in all of the auxiliaries.  She served for many years in the Cub Scouts organization.  She loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren dearly.  Spending time with family was the most important thing in her life.  There were no strangers in her life- just friends she hadn’t met yet…
