Very little is known about Willa's life prior to the outbreak, or as the outbreak began expect that she had two brothers, a father, a mother, and an uncle named Kyle.
Willa plays on the beach with her brother Harry as a lone zombie approaches the pair, but the zombie is prevented from reaching them due to the chain link fence standing in its way. After the arrival of Travis' group, Willa and her family invite the survivors into their house. Later, she plays with her brother alongside Nick and Alicia. Meanwhile, Madison and Melissa discuss Travis' group taking the young children with, as Melissa does not want her husband to kill their entire family with pills. However, George catches wind of Melissa's plans and intervenes. Unfortunately, Harry informs the adults that something is wrong with his sister. The survivors find a deceased Willa near the bag of pills, in which they realize she accidentally overdosed and died after ingesting the pills. A distraught Melissa cradles her daughter's body when the young girl wakes up and bites her mother, killing her. Ultimately it is unknown what happens to the rest of her family after she, Melissa, and presumably George are killed, as Harry and Seth are left alone on the island after Travis and his group leave, before offering to take in the two boys, to which Seth refuses.
