Willie was born Oct. 1, 1920, in Pinto, Montana, to Ray Stanley Harper and Josie Mae (Griffin) Harper.
She married Verlan G. (Ben) Holbert in Hardin, Montana, in 1939, and they spent their honeymoon at the first annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. She spent her life caring for her husband, children, home and garden — all things she enjoyed.
Ben and Willie Mae had three children: Michãel (Hugh) Baker, Noel Holbert, and Cheri (David) Engdahl.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, siblings, son and great-grandson.
Willie is survived by her daughters; four granddaughters: Tauna Eberhard, Trina Chick, Kim Stark and Kellie Burns; two grandsons: Kerry Holbert and Bret Engdahl; 14 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.
Memorial services will be held at a later date.
