MALOY WALLS WILLIAMS

Maloy Walls Williams...beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and great great grandmother...died peacefully at her home at BridgePoint Los Altos June 11th, 2011. She was 94 years old. Feisty and full of fun, she showed those around her how to age with dignity and humor.

Born in Kokomo, Mississippi, October 3, 1916, grew up in nearby Natchez surrounded by six sisters, two brothers. The night she graduated from Natchez High, she announced she and Winston Dewith Williams “Speedy” had been secretly married since September 10, 1933, her entire senior year. Loved writing poetry, was also a top student in shorthand and typing. That served her well as she worked as an executive secretary in Shreveport, Louisiana, quitting for the birth of Winston Williams, Jr. and Rita Carol Williams. Her husband, a civilian foreman of communications, transferred to Reese Air Force Base, Lubbock, Texas, 1949. They retired in 1973 to Lake Travis, Texas. Maloy served as an officer for the Lago Vista Women's Club, AARP and Hill Country Ministries. She and her husband were charter members of Rolling Hills Community Church, Lago Vista, Texas. Her beloved husband preceded her in death in 1994. Maloy moved to Los Altos in 2003 to be near daughter Rita Williams, son-in-law Lindsay Bowen, grandson Brad Bowen, Portola Valley. Other survivors include sister Juanita Hooks, Columbus, Mississippi; son Winston, Montgomery, Alabama; grandchildren Angela Charnes, Austin; Clifton Williams, Grand Chain, Illinois. Other siblings preceded her in death.

The family is eternally grateful to the kind caregivers at BridgePoint and Pathways Hospice. Memorials can be made to Pathways or Rolling Hills Community Church, 6201 Lohman Ford Road, Lago Vista, Texas 78645.

Burial, Pflugerville, Texas. Celebration at Rolling Hills Church followed by a barbeque.
