Villa Rea died at the Wyoming Medical Center in Casper on May 20, 1994, of cancer.

She was born in Lusk, Wyo., on April 26, 1938, to Howard and Clara Zimmerman Haworth.

At the age of 14, she started working as a waitress and spent her entire life as a cafe worker and manager. She enjoyed pleasing her customers with her excellent cooking. Villa worked until her death. She also loved to bowl and was one of those who was instrumental in starting the Alumni Association of Lusk.

She was preceded in death by her father, an infant brother and grandparents.

She is survived by a daughter, Clara Jo Stull of Jeffery City; two sons, Jack and wife Teresa Rea of Hanceville, Ala.; Bill and wife Darlene Rea of Lusk; Clara Haworth, her mother, also of Lusk; seven grandchildren, uncles, aunts and numerous cousins.

Memorials to the family would be appreciated.
