Drucilla Williams

June 18, 1931 — January 14, 2024

Drucilla Williams left for her eternal home on Sunday, January 14, 2024.

Born to Smith Fleet and Blume Ethel Steadman on June 18, 1931, “Sis” was their eighth child and only daughter. With seven older brothers watching over her, she enjoyed a happy, carefree, rambunctious childhood in the small Delta town of Drew, Mississippi.

Sis married her high school sweetheart, Hugh Williams in 1949. They moved to the RGValley in 1951 and settled into the Rio Hondo area with a bag of silver dollars to sustain them until the cotton season began. Within 38 years of marriage Sis and Hugh were blessed with three healthy children: Deborah, Glynn, and Tracey! Early years hold special memories of water skiing on the Arroyo Colorado, trips to the beach and in later years they enjoyed private plane and motorcycle trips to many destinations including Mexico.

Sis was a talented cook, homemaker, seamstress and a loving mother. She excelled at many hobbies such as bowling, oil painting, and decorating. She was a lifetime member of the Rio Hondo Baptist Church, serving in many capacities including singing in the choir every Sunday. She treasured her church family and missed them dearly when faltering health made necessary a move to the NE to live with her daughter and extended family in 2016. Friends Don Gray, Don McGehee, Norma Harris, Tammy Meier, and Sharon Noake will be remembered as especially kind to Sis for staying in touch with her despite their busy lives.

Mrs. Williams was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, and her husband (1984). Now forever in the presence of her Lord and Savior she leaves to mourn her passing and treasure their memories of her are children: Deborah Williams-McGehee, Glynn Williams (Sherri), Tracey (Michelle)and grandchildren: Savanna Ross (Hugh) Smith McGehee, Cody Goss, Lacey Shepard, Dylan Williams (Hayley) Sarah Golligee (Tanner) plus 11 great grandchildren!

Proverbs 31 :10 “A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds.”

A funeral service will take place on Saturday, January 20, 2024 at 1:30 p.m. at the Rio Hondo Baptist Church. Following the service, Mrs. Williams will be laid to rest at Mont Meta Memorial Park.
