July 31, 1935 — December 17, 2021


Barbara " Sue" Willsey was a devoted wife, loving mother, grandmother, sister and loyal friend. She left this world suddenly on December 17, 2021 at the age of 86. Her courage and strength during the past two years of health challenges is praiseworthy. Sue loved tennis , sports, cherished her family and friends, and was a gift to the fashion industry. Her gracious smile will be remembered as a Kansas City Model on the runway, as well as featured in magazines and newspapers, representing the Jones Store, Wolfe Brothers, and Swanson's to name a few. Sue was the Fashion Coordinator at Saks Fifth Avenue and made contributions to the community. Sue was preceded in death by her parents, sister Jan and Nancy and her beloved husband and life partner Don. She is survived by her children Kelly (Charlie), Phillip, Joel (Connie), her grandchildren Adam, Sarah, Connor, Laura, and Jackson. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Sue's name to the Crittenton Home for Children. Sue's leg
gacy will be honored by living our lives to the fullest with joy, strength and faith.
