She was a member of St. Theresa’s Catholic Church of Albany and St. Joseph Catholic Church of Waycross. She was a faithful volunteer of the church and a member of the three Ann’s along with Ann Johnson and Ann O’Connell. These three ladies were the cleaning angels of the church.
She also volunteered in the Loaves and Fishes program at St. Joseph. She had an infectious smile and pretty blue eyes and was a lover of animals, along with a sparkling wit and Southern graciousness. She will be sorely missed by her family and her church family. She loved her time at the beach. She was a devoted wife and mother.
She was preceded in death by her father, Barney Bass Williams, and her mother, Christine Brosnan Williams, and her husband, Robert.
