Condolences to the William's family. We were lucky to live near you in Hamden growing up. Your mom was a really great teacher, and I'm sure you will hear from many of her students how wonderful their memories are of her. Sorry for your loss.

Many fond memories of my time spent at the Williams house in my late teens. Mrs Williams left no doubt she was in charge, watched and listened to her council and coach her children (and often me). Got to help with the firewood detail a season or two and always left with the feeling she appreciated the hard work. I remember her being in the kitchen often on cold days hunkered down next to her tiny Jotul parlor stove and it actually made me feel good knowing I contributed to the effort to make her comfortable. Saw the guidance, witnessed the respect and love and her interest in what we were up to each and every day I popped in to visit. I remember vividly when I became a father myself, one of ...my first solo trips around town included a stop to show off my new baby to Mrs Williams. She coddled and held my little girl talking to her and looking her over from head to toe with great interest and this made me very happy and so proud. I could see the genuine joy in her holding that baby and remember just like it was yesterday that she still found some time to offer me a little coaching, even with the baby distraction I threw at her. She was a special lady for sure, so very pleased I was able to be so closely involved in a small snippet of her life.Read more

My sympathy to Mrs. Williams' family. My son, Jeff, could not have asked for a better first grade teacher than Mrs. Williams. She was so happy to see him even after he was years older and out of her classroom. One of those special persons who touch our lives in so many ways.
