Mary Ann Williams, age 66, passed away Thursday, September 17, 2020, at the Jean Waddle Hospice in Somerset Kentucky, surrounded by her loved ones. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and aunt. She was greeted into her Heavenly home by her Heavenly Father as well as those who preceded her in death; her father and mother, Orville and Nellie Heather and her brothers, David, Joe and Rick Heather.
She is survived by her loving husband, Dave Williams; her son Dan and wife Karen Ramos, her daughter, Shannon and husband Ron Sweatt; grandchildren Cortney, Aaron, Brandon, Heather, Alicia and Dylan; great grandchildren, Cayden, Rowan, Torin and Poseidon; sister-in-love Cheri Heather, as well as a host of nieces and nephews, to many of which she was much more than an aunt; and many four legged creatures which she loved over the years.
She imparted much love and wisdom to her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and nieces and nephews, which will never be forgotten. Mary was born June 21, 1954 in Boonville Missouri. She lived in Indiana, Kansas, Colorado and Kentucky throughout her life. She had many satisfying jobs over the years, from Teamster bus driver, bus driver for handicapped children to cooking for the elderly in an assisted living. She also loved to sew and embroider. She made many baby blankets and gifts for us over the years. She also enjoyed bowling, darts and watching car racing. Most importantly she loved spending time with her family. She taught us all to love each other and put family first as well as to be strong and hardworking, always leading by example. She may be gone from Earth but she will live on in hearts.
