Ada L. Williams, 89, passed away from this life October 1, 2020. Ada lived in Columbus, Indiana since she was a small child. She loved her family and they meant everything to her. Her children, Bryan and Lora were blessed to have her as their loving mother and they knew she always wanted the best for them.

Ada worked at Children Inc. as a preschool teacher assistant from 1966-1978 and also babysat for several families in Columbus where she made lasting friendships. She enjoyed working with children and truly made a difference in their lives.

She retired early to care for her mother, and then to take care of her sweet granddaughters. Later in life, she volunteered at Columbus Regional Hospital for several years.

Ada enjoyed family gatherings and visits with friends. She was the family caregiver and was there for anyone that needed her. She loved to read and listen to music, and had a great time shopping for antique treasures and goodies for the grandchildren.

She was a lady of faith and an angel among us. She will be missed by her family and all who knew her.

Ada is survived by her daughter, Lora (Steve) Ayers of Columbus; granddaughters, Chelsea Fox (Paul Clear); and Amanda Fox (Brady Clement); great-granddaughters, Madison and Makinzy Clement, all of Columbus; and many family members.

She was preceded in death by her son, Bryan W. Fox; her husband, Albert Williams; her parents, Cora and Gillis Davis; her brothers, Kenneth and Frank; and her sisters, Loretta, Bonnie, Virginia, and Verla.

A special thank you to the staff at Hickory Creek at Columbus for their care and friendship.

Seems I've known Ada all my life and I've never meet a sweeter, more kind person. She cared about literally everyone. She always had a smile, a soft touch, a good heart, and a great ear. You could tell her anything good or bad because she loved unconditionally. I loved the "look" when she didn't like what she heard. She always told me what she thought, honestly. I loved her.
She will be missed!

Aunt Ada’s warmth is all-encompassing. Memories of spending childhood summers with her on Lafayette St. will forever make me smile. For me, Ada meant comfort, love, and understanding. Sending all my love.

Aunt Ada was probably one of the most selfless people I have ever known. I always found it interesting that she liked opera and Broadway and little cucumber sandwiches with tea at the tea room downtown. She was someone very special and all of our lives were better because she was who she was.

I was a caregiver for Ada. She helped me get through my clinicals to continue to care for her and she was there when I was hired. Her and her family were the sweetest people I have ever met. I always looked forward to walking in her room and talking to her. She will be greatly missed.

Was a caregiver of Ada for almost 2 years. We shared lots of talks about going to Canada and other silly things. She'll definitely be missed.

I worked with Ada at Children's Inc. back in 1978-1979. She was a wonderful, kind, and caring lady. May her family be comforted and may she rest in peace.
