Mariella Willis Obituary

Mariella S. Willis, 83, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday July 9, 2024 at her home in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina. She was born on September 30, 1940 to the late John & Edyth Swanson.

Along with her parents, Mari is reunited in passing with her beloved husband, Dr. Almer Joe Willis & son, Craig Willis.

Mari was a hardworking and dedicated wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She worked as her husband’s business partner and office manger for Willis Chiro-Med, a company of nearly 40 clinics and imaging facilities which stretched over 4 states.

She enjoyed Christmas time and having everyone together. Above all else, Mari loved her family with her whole heart. She will be deeply missed but fondly remembered as her grandchildren and great-grandchildren’s #1 fan.
