Margaret L. “Mickey” Billets, 94, of Valparaiso passed away peacefully at home on Friday, September 17, 2021. She was born December 9, 1926 in Kouts, IN to Louis H. & Mary Alice Hough, and graduated from Kouts High School.  Mickey was a child of the Great Depression and daughter of a country veterinarian who married 3 years after WW II. She could tell fascinating stories and survived many challenges in life, including the death of her father at age 9, and the early death of her husband while she was still in her 50’s. Mickey was an accomplished seamstress, made amazing homemade rolls and strawberry Jell-O salad, read voraciously, and never stopped learning.  She was a longtime member of the Valparaiso Nazarene Church and a tireless fan of the Chicago Bulls.
On April 4, 1948 she married Alfonce “Al” Billets who preceded her in death in 1985. Survivors include their children, Alan Billets of Florida, Susan (Daniel) Kelly of Michigan City & Steven Billets of Colorado, grandchildren, Ryan, Keith, Shyla, Rachael, Mark, Rebecca, Sahara, Sylvia & Avery, and 12 great-grandchildren.  She was also preceded in death by her siblings, Hugh, Ralph, Robert, Eva, May & Ida.
A visitation will be held on
Saturday, October 2nd from 12 noon – 1 pm at Moeller Funeral Home, Valparaiso with memorial service beginning at 1:00 pm.  In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the American Cancer Society.
