B.E. Willis, DO "Genie" to her friends, passed away on December 9th, 2019 at age 94. Dr. Willis began her practice in 1969 in the Woodstock region in Portland after completing her internship at Portland Osteopathic Hospital. She had been inspired to become a physician at a young age from her family physician, Dr. Ireland who made housecalls (traveling via a spring wagon) in her small village where she grew up in Canada. Dr. Willis took pride in never refusing service to her patients. She delivered babies, assisted in surgery and was available to her patients at all times during her 30+ year career. Dr. Willis gave not only her time back to her community, but contributed to scholarships for women in osteopathic medicine so she could help others who aspire to become osteopathic physicians. You can read her full bio here conducted by John Stiger, DO in March, 2012.
