Oscar Ollie Willborg

Oscar Ollie Willborg age 93 passed away Friday, December 11, 2020. Ollie was born October 22, 1927 to Winford and Nell Willborg of Houston, Texas. He was married at age 18 to Cleta Lovan on November 26, 1945.  They had three children, Karen, born 1947, Mark, born 1948, and Carol, born 1949.

He had many difficult times.  Losing the fingers off his left hand in a hunting accident at age 9.  At age 20 losing his first child Karen at birth.  When he was 29, his wife Cleta began a long journey of illness.  Despite the many hardships he kept his Faith and worked hard to provide for his family and help others. He never talked religion or politics-he lived his beliefs by his Faith in Action – Treating others with Respect and Helping others.

He really enjoyed his years in law enforcement. He was always amazed at how many thanked him for treating them with Respect in every type of situation. His Faith in action again.
He enjoyed fishing with his family and would always get up early to prepare everything they would need.

He was preceded in death by Karen Willborg  (infant daughter), his parents, Winford and Nell Willborg,

the Love of his life, Cleta Willborg, his wife of 63 years and his sisters, Irene King and Joy Willborg. 

He is survived by his children Mark and Anita Willborg and Danny and Carol Miller;
grandchildren, John and Mandy Maddox,  Marcus and Heather Willborg,  Bobby and  Rhonda Willborg, Matt and Kay Maddox, Phil and Kacie Peek, Joshua and Jessica Miller, Dax and Rita Miller, Scarlett and Sam Evert, Jr.  and 24 great-grand children.
His message -by example not words- to his family would be to have great Faith in God and treat others with Respect and Kindness as he did his entire life.
In his last months at Peachtree Assisted Living even though he needed help in every way – he always thanked each one for every task they did for him and treated them with Respect and Kindness.
His message to his family is God First, Treat others well and life is not about you.

  His family wants to thank his caregivers Ralph, Melanie Emily and Jackie while at home and all the staff at Peachtree Assisted Living and Elite Hospice for the love and his excellent care.  

A graveside service was held Monday, December 14, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. at the Pine Ridge Cemetery in Pine Ridge, Arkansas under the direction of the Beasley-Wood Funeral Home.  In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the Peachtree Assisted Living and/or Elite Hospice.
