quite unexpected. Her entire life was spent in Adams and surrounding counties.

Illinois, and a host of other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death
by her parents, four brothers Robert, Melvin, Murray and Ralph Williams and

Her life ambition was doing things for her family and her grandchildren, whom
she dearly loved. She loved all children and helped her brother Bill raise his
family after his wife's death, she was truly a good neighbor, always kind and
ready to help anyone in need. Our family circle is now broken and life will
never be the same without her, but she will live on in blessed memory.
