Obituary: Alice Williams, 89, Ludington.

April 11, 1931 to June 7, 2020

Alice Grace Williams was born April 11, 1931 in Montagu.. The daughter of Edwin R. and Alice (Deephouse) Nelson, she was a hard worker as a youth and graduated in the class of 1949 from Montague Township School.

She met Ramon C. Williams, the love of her life, and was married July 28, 1950. They enjoyed over 60 years of marriage and were blessed with six children. Alice was active in 4-H and taught knitting, crocheting, and sewing. Over the years many of her beautiful afghan blankets became treasures for those lucky enough to purchase one.

Alice worked for Giant Way Discount Store in Ludington prior to its opening until its closing date; she then went on to work many years at Nichols Drug Store in Scottville. After working for nearly 60 years, she decided to retire and enjoy home life.

Alice is survived by her children, Randy (Carol), Terry, Robert (Jean), Michael (Vickie), Kathy (Ernie) Collins, Wesley( Tonya) Williams; sister, Caroline DuBois, 11 grandchildren, Adam (April) Williams, Geoff Williams, Andrea, Jeremy (Jee), Rebecca (Bill) Hogenson, Joshua, Abigail, Christopher (Erin) Hernandez, Kerri (Jason) Szot, Jenny Anthony, and Victoria Williams; 17 great-grandchildren (the last of which, Landon Christopher Hernandez, was born on her 87th birthday).

Alice was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years; her beloved grandson, Aaron Lee Williams; great-granddaughter, Jaenelle Collins; sister, Harriet Kassner; and brother, Raymond Nelson.

Time is an unfriendly element. It seems as though there is never enough time to go around. Too many things left unfinished and too much left unsaid. We cherish each selfless moment you brought into our lives, and you will forever be missed.
