Willodean Payne

May 12, 1933 — March 31, 2023

Willodean Wilson Payne of Hoover and formerly Forestdale passed away on March 31 at the age of 89. She recently shared that she had a good life, was tired and ready to go.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Clayton (C.L.) Payne, and sister, Shirley Patton. She is survived by her daughter, Donna Lynn Hamrick (David). She was a loving care giver to my Grandmother and later my Dad.

She retired from Durr Surgical Supply in 1990 after 30 years of service and made many lifelong friends.

She had many friends and was a well- loved in the community. There are so many wonderful neighbors: Pat, Joy, Nina, Sri, Jsri and our second family, the Plummers. Mother and Dad had the opportunity to travel upon retirement, many times with our dear friend, Elise. Dana, Dr. Ernst and Merry Gordon were special friends from the Sr. Center. She always felt her best when leaving Steve from The Look and loved him so.

Mother was kind, sentimental and very thoughtful, loving to surprise you with a "happy". Her Grand dogs, Rusty and Abby, would happily howl when asked to go to Grandmother's and she was always delighted to see them.

I have great memories of us shopping on Saturday's and don't know anyone who loved Christmas more. My parents had an incredibly happy marriage of 61 years, and she has missed my Dad so much. I am sure that Daddy is winking at her now in heaven.

A special thank you to Penny and Dr. Patterson who took such great care of her.

Hug your Mom, or someone else, really tight for me today.
