Willa Mae LeNoir

May 3, 1930 — June 10, 2024

Willa Mae LeNoir, was born on May 3, 1930 in Hickory, Mississippi to her parents, Aaron Pruitt and Fannie (Johnson) Pruitt. She was raised with her siblings, Alonzo Pruitt, Rev. James T. Pruitt, Leonard Pruitt and Grace (Pruitt) Suggs. As a child, Willa was a country girl, she helped her family wherever they needed and assisted in taking care of her siblings. She was educated through Mississippi Public Schools where she graduated from Good Hope Public School.

Willa moved to Freeport, and there she met Clinton LeNoir. To this union Janice (Easterling) LeNoir was born. Willa and Clinton moved to Denver, Colorado in 1982. Willa and Clinton were formally married in 2007.

By profession, she was an educator, she worked at Marrama Elementary School. After retiring she took on a job working security. She always performed her duties with a spirit of excellence. 

Willa was a woman of faith that knew her help came from the Lord. She proudly served as a member of Greater Faith Baptist Church for 20 years. 

Throughout her life, Willa was known for her exceptional culinary skills and her nurturing spirit. She was an amazing cook and a loving soul; she touched the hearts of many with her delicious dishes and welcoming demeanor. In her free time, Willa enjoyed various hobbies including cooking, gardening, sewing, singing, attending church services, and savoring a cup of coffee. Most notably, she enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Her grandchildren fondly recall that she would take them on road trips to Illinois, cook them breakfast, going to the Air Force Base to grocery shop, taking them to church and sing worship songs. And to the surprise of many, anytime DMX songs came on she would sing it to them.

Willa is survived by her brother James T. Pruitt; sister in-law Rev. Dr. Ola Pruitt; grandchildren Dean LeNoir, Damon Easterling, Jeannine Easterling, and Ramone Easterling; great-grandchildren Brittany Flores, Xavier LeNoir, Regine LeNoir, Dominique "Dee Dee" LeNoir, Seth Garcia, Najanay Sanders, Alvilina, Lavino, MarkAnthony; as well as great-great-grandchildren Rhiannon, Julian, Zhavia, Xavier, Xaveon, Kayleigh, Kyleigh, Emma, Ella, Jaxson, Amun, Jha'Mari and nieces and nephews.
