She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of fifty-two years, Paul T. Thrift. Willa Mae was secretary for the State Board of Health, Baker County Sheriff's Office and the Clerk of Courts. She and Paul built and operated Thrifty Stop Grocery before retiring in 1979. She had a deep love for flowers, plants, and enjoyed working in her yard and garden. She also enjoyed cooking, canning, and always wanted visitors to leave with a gift in their hand. Willa Mae was a devoted Christian mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
