She was dedicated to her family and enjoyed sewing and gardening. She worked for 20 years as a Financial Aid Officer for the UTHSC (University of Texas Health Science Center) where she enjoyed giving each student personalized guidance.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Clarence W. Willock, her parents, her sister Joyce Hyden, her brother Blackshear Hyden and her sister Willie Ruth George.
She is survived by her daughter, Paula A. Willock Stewart and husband Duane, his children Erin Stewart and Tony Gerdom and both of their families. She is also survived by a nephew, Bruce Hyden, his wife Jeanne and their family.
She was a blessing to everyone who knew her so, though she will be missed, they can be comforted in the knowledge that she is now with God and her husband in a better place.
