ONEONTA – Muriel Joy Willies, formerly of West Orange, N.J., and recently of The Plains in Oneonta, passed peacefully on April 14, 2017. She was 91.

Born Feb. 24, 1926, in Orange, N.J., she was the daughter of the late Lionel (Leo) J. and Emerald Clara (Smith) Broyer. Joy graduated from Orange High School and on Sept. 14, 1944, married the love of her life, John Willies Jr, who survives her after 72 “joyfilled” years of marriage.

She was a much-loved daughter, sister, wife and “sweetheart”, mother, aunt, grandmother, great- grandmother and dear friend to many. Joy blended friends and family with love, grace and respect. She had a heart for those in need and the family home at 26 Randolph Place provided a welcoming place of comfort for many. She was blessed with the gift of hospitality and hosted innumerable family/friend gatherings, dinners and parties.
