On the morning of the 18th of October our mother, June Eaton Williams, passed peacefully to Heaven to sing with the choir of angels. We remember her as the anchor of our lives. She was always present in the many times of need and joy.
She created our enduring hub of family activity on Alturas Street where all were unconditionally welcome. She will exist in us for the rest of our lives, and we are inspired to show the kindness that she gave to those around her. We miss her dearly.
In her life, she was dedicated to her husband of seventy-one years, Albert and their four children, Don, Mike, Teresa and Daphne, as well as her rescue cats. One of her great joys was to softly glow in the light of her children's accomplishments all the way from grade school watercolors on the refrigerator, to middle school bands, to adult careers, and especially grandchildren.
She was born in Hamphire County, West Virginia and lived in that area until she married and started a family. The family moved to Arizona in 1960. From an early age she enjoyed music. She played the piano and the french horn in high school, later the auto harp, and more recently she was a longtime bell ringer in Our Saviour's Church bell choir. She really loved playing the bells.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Albert Williams. She is survived by her four children, Don Williams and his wife Eileen, Mike Williams and his wife Debra-Ann Strahl, Teresa Hansen, and Daphne Myers, as well as four grandchildren and two great grandchildren. Her services will be at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church at 11:00 on Saturday, Octoober 29, 2022.
