Willie Florence Milburn

Willie Florence Milburn

Willie Florence Shiflet Milburn, 97, from Brownwood (formally from Nocona, Texas), passed from this life Monday, November 16, 2020, in Granbury, Texas, due to complications from COVID-19. Willie was born to Emmit and Cliffie Ann (Sloan) Shiflet in Quanah, Texas, December 21, 1922. She and her siblings were raised on a farm in the North Texas community of Marysville. At some point in her youth, Willie became known as “Billie.” Her family never knew the why or how of that, but some have suggested it was because she had a sister named Jimmie, while others think it was due to her being able to out hit and out throw every boy on the baseball field. However it was, she grew up and became a young adult through two of the most impactful events of the 20th Century - The Great Depression and WWII. No doubt these events helped shape her into the woman she became, a woman of tremendous fortitude and determination, full of compassion and love, especially for her family, and a member of the Greatest Generation.
