I want to extend my sympathies for your loss to all the members of the Williams family. Your mother was a special person to the community as well as to the students she served in Liberty County. As an educator I honor your mother for her commitment and professional ethics in performing her job as a steward and teacher for young people. Her wry sense of humour was a wonderful thing to have experienced as she helped students navigate math. She had grace as she taught lessons of life in the school setting. I look back on our youth with your mother in church, school and the community with warm reflections of her hospitality and generous nature. Liz Pipkin

Not only was MS Williams my Algebra teacher at Bradwell Institute, she was the mother of one of my best friends! I loved staying over at the Williamses, and she always made me feel welcome. My sincere condolences to the entire family.

I was lucky to have Mrs. Williams as my algebra teacher, more importantly, I am lucky to have known "Eunice" and all of her family. She gave us a wonderful example of a life well lived, and I much appreciate all of the time I spent with her and her family - at the beach, preparing dinner parties while hoping our mistakes were not observed and doing all those things after midnight that one could not do before midnight. She is missed.
