Billie is also survived by her grandchildren Clint, Stephen, Brett, Nikki, Chelsey, Jeffrey, Brittany, Chelsie, Jake, Josh, Brandon, Dallas, Becca, Dakota, Lauren, Kayla, Kinsley, Kelsie, Charlie and 20 great grandbabies. They were truly her pride and joy. Three sisters Dianne (Aunt May) Simmons, Irma Jean (Aunt Jeannie) Smith, and Hazel (Aunt P. G.) Baker; along with nephews, nieces, aunts, uncles, all the countless people she was "Nanny" to and everyone that her sweet spirit touched.

She adored her family and loved spending time with them. Her family was the bright lights in her life. She was the ROCK for everyone who had the opportunity to know her.

Billie loved Jesus, family and friends. She was a member of Guiding Star Church in Sunnyvale, and she loved to sing in church with her family and brothers and sisters in Christ. She worked countless years for car dealership's Auto City and Barrett Motors. She loved all of co-workers and countless customers, they meant the world to her. She was a kind soul who would lend a hand when needed, always putting others before herself. She had her trials and her struggles, but always had a smile on her face. She will be missed by all who had the privilege to know and love her. She is truly our loss and Heaven's gain.

Billie received her wings and eternal healing when she went home to be with her Lord on Wednesday, February 9, 2022. She is now with her Heavenly Father and will be waiting and watching for those who will see her again later. As she would say, "Don't cry for me I am where I have always wanted to be". Love forever and always.
