Elizabeth loved spending time with her family. She especially loved Christmas mornings where everyone gathered together at her home for Christmas Breakfast. She made sure no one left the house hungry or without a gift from her. She loved to knit, (we all can testify to getting a knitted hat, scarf, blanket, sweater), she enjoyed cooking and being creative with arts and crafts, which by the way was her talent. Mom also had a way of making everyone feel special. Each one of us thought we were her favorite but truth be told she had no favorite. She loved each one of us the same. Her talents were passed down to her grandchildren who carry the mantel of drawing, painting and cooking. If you knew Mrs. Liz, Mrs. Lizzy, Aunt Lizzy, Mama Liz or Sis Williams as some affectionately called her, you probably feel like a great staple in your life has gone. But she is not gone. Mom will forever be in our hearts. You could always depend on her to lend a helping hand. Mom touched so many people in different ways starting back to her days at the Boys & Girls Club where she worked as Arts & Crafts Director for nearly 30 yrs. The club kids are all grown up now and still reverence her with affection when they speak of her. From there she was employed at Senior Care Adult Day Care Center until her retirement in 2005.
Sis Elizabeth Williams was a lifelong member of St Paul A.M.E. Zion church located on Lower Ferry Rd. She loved the Lord and instilled that love in her children. She was appointed and served on the Stewardess Board under the leadership of Dr. Rev. Keith D. Tillett.
She also spent her days at the Reading Senior Center playing bingo, pokeno, cards and going on trips to AC with friends.
Mom will be missed by all who knew her but she is now happier than she ever was.
