Jadah Ann Willmett passed away Monday, August 2, 2021. She was 21 years old.
Jadah was born July 14, 2000, in Denver, Colorado. She grew up in Durango and attended Durango Schools. She was active in the choir and played the guitar.
Jadah was a servant at heart as she always worked in different service related jobs.
She touched so many lives as her kind demeanor always comforted the patrons at her work places. She always put others needs before her own. Her friends grew in number by every encounter. Jadah's impacting ability to make friends caused many of her acquaintances to seek her out in the future; time and distance didn't keep her from her love of others.
In addition to a strong work ethic and love of her work, she loved quirky and goofy television programs, and super-hero movies.
She is survived by her parents: Ed and Sonya Willmett; siblings: Crystal Willmett, and Michael (Krysta) Abeyta-Griego; grandparents: Don and Sheila Willmett and Maryann Abeyta; and nephew, Maverick Abeyta as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family and a multitude of wonderful friends.
She is preceded by her grandmothers: Diane Shaw and Linda Willmett.
