Hyde, Willa D.

September 29, 1930 — September 26, 2019

Willa D. Hyde, 88, passed away September 26, 2019.

Willa Deane Stott was born September 29, 1930 on a farm in Memphis, MO to Lena and Simeon Stott. She married Jay Hyde on April 21, 1956. They lived a military life on bases in France, Ohio and Richards-Gebaur Air Force Base near Belton, MO.

Willa enjoyed an active life working for the Internal Revenue Service. Bowling, playing cards, the Kansas City Chiefs, and membership in Chapter 804 of the Air Force Sergeants Association consumed a lot of her free time. Willa served as International President of the AFSA Auxiliary and several offices of AFSA 804.

Volunteering was a big part of her life. Willa registered voters, taught flag etiquette to school kids, and manned the clothes closet at the VA hospital. As the director and producer of the annual AFSA floor shows, she volunteered hours raising money for the Air Force widows' home and the local VA hospital. Willa kept busy in retirement as an Avon lady for 15 years.

Willa is survived by her daughters Janie Hodges (Larry), Melissa Semke, Grandchildren Phil Hodges (Jessica), Pam Shelton (Joshua), Jill Finch (Jesse), David McCalman (Chrystal), Great Grandchildren Parker and Isaac Shelton, and Stella and Connor Finch.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Kansas City Veterans' Hospital, or Chapter 804 of the Air Force Sergeants Association.

Please wear something pink or green of the day of Willa's memorial. And on days you might wear pink, think of Willa Hyde.

Visitation will be 9-11AM, Saturday, October 12 at Park Lawn, 8251 Hillcrest Rd.

Hyde, Willa D.'s Guestbook

Such a great lady, a tremendous Auxiliary International President for the Air Force Sergeants Association in the early 1980s, a true patriot, and along with her late husband, Jay, a valued and trusted friend. God rest them both. They will be sorely missed.

John Hodson

Our sincere condolences to the families of Willa. She was a wonderful lady and a huge asset to the Air Force Sergeants Association, Chapter 804 and the former Auxiliary. Jay now has his bride with him again. May they both Rest In Peace.
