Elsie Williams

PRICE - Elsie Faye Hughes Williams, age 88, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 21, in Price.

She was born Nov. 6, 1919 in Virginia City, Va., to John Thomas and Lillie Virginia Earles Hughes. Married Ronald A. Williams June 7, 1941; he preceded her in death on Nov. 27, 1950.

Elsie lived a full life. 

She worked at Cook's Velvet Freeze for more than 35 years and was like a second mother to many of the boys and girls who walked through those doors.

She was  always willing to drop everything for her children.

Many fun times were spent on hayrides, tubing in the canal, sleigh riding on the hoods of old cars and, yes, even hauling everyone she could fit in her car to a baseball game or dance.

She is survived by her son, Larry Williams, Carbonville; daughter, Laura Pool, Phoenix, Ariz.; seven grandchildren, Ron Williams, Trishia Shaw, Denise Rentschler, Amy Hansen, Paula Draper, Beckie Gamber, and Asa Draper; and 11 great-grandchildren. Elsie was preceded in death by her husband, Ronald; son, Lynn Williams; and, just recently, by her great-grandson, Caleb Williams.

Graveside services will be Monday, Oct. 27, 11 a.m., at the Price City Cemetery.  Arrangements entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home
