WILLIAMS, Lorraine Mary

Together Again

WILLIAMS, Lorraine Mary, 78, of St. Clairsville, OH, died Tuesday, October 8, 2013 in Ohio Valley Medical Center, Wheeling WV.

She was born February 11, 1935 in Ronda, WV, a daughter of the late Raymond and Stella Sexton Crowe.

She was the best Mom a kid could have and loved her children with unconditional devotion. She was the consummate “preacher’s wife” as she supported her husband in his ministry.

Never too busy to see to the needs of another and never upset when her husband brought home folks for dinner unannounced. She would always make sure there was enough for all.

Her extended family and her church family were the loves of her life. She loved music and made sure her children made it a part of their lives. Her best friend and loving husband of 57 years was surely standing at the door waiting for her when she walked into heaven.

She was retired from Stone and Thomas, formerly of Wheeling, WV, and was a member of the Tiltonsville Tabernacle Church .

Preceding her in death was her husband, Kenneth R. Williams; two sisters, Lola Winston, Shirley Pelot; and a brother, Raymond Crowe Jr.

Surviving are her children, Ted (Molly) Williams of Bellaire, OH, Deborah “Shag” Williams of Wheeling, WV and Steve Williams of St. Clairsville OH; three brothers, Jim, Dan and Robert Crowe; two sisters, Rita (Paul) Estep of Rittman, OH Diane Crowe- Presutto LeGuillon; and beloved brother-in-law, Leroy Pelot of Wadsworth, OH; three grandchildren, Cassie (Blake) Bendel, Steven Williams and Janette Williams. “Gigi” also leaves a great – grandson, Liam Bendel; and several nieces and nephews Family and friends received Sunday, October 13, 2013 from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. at the Bauknecht-Altmeyer Funeral Homes and Crematory, 441 37th Street, Bellaire, OH, where funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Monday with Pastor Gary King officiating.
