Betty R. (nee Parris) Williams, 81, of Glen Carbon, IL, born, July 12, 1937, in Howard, AL, passed away peacefully, April 24, 2019, with her family by her side.

Betty was a jewel to all who knew and loved her. She married the love of her life, Edward E. Williams, and together the two shared almost 50 years of marriage, and beautiful memories. She was a woman of faith, having attended various First Assembly of God Churches, and she instilled that faith into her children, and grandchildren. Betty wrote a song called Jesus My King, and it was later performed by her son, and also played during her transition to her heavenly home. Betty was truly an angel on Earth and now in heaven. She was a loving mother, grandma, great grandma, sister, and friend. She will truly be missed.

Williams; her parents, Edgar N. and Dorothy (nee Files) Parris; her brothers, Daniel, Edward, Jasper, Howard, Donald, and Paul Parris; her sisters, Lillie Schmittel, Esther Virginia “Jenny” Rowe, Peggy Maggard, and Doris “June” Parris.

Williams, Jeffrey (Pamela) Williams, and Shelly (Mike) Tallerico; her grandchildren, Jennifer Williams, Lauren (Mike) Castelli, Michael Williams, Timothy (Lindsey) Williams, Linda (Dominic) Giovando, Christina Stark, Glenn D. Williams, Crystal (Bob) Boyd, Elizabeth Williams, Josh (Megan) Williams, Matt Williams, Andrew Williams, Lindsey (Kyle) Schardan, Eric Dawley, Sarah (Spencer) Hoppes, and Julia Tallerico, 27 great-grandchildren; siblings, Judy McIver, and Edgar “Bucky” (Brenda) Parris Jr., and a number of dear relatives and friends.

I met Betty at a yard sale that she my mom and I were at. She was the sweetest person. She and Mom had talked on the phone a few times then mom got Alzheimer's and didn't like taking on the phone anymore. Mom and I even came to her son's funeral. Betty was one of those people you just felt like you had known your whole life after only talking a few minutes. I am so thankful to have known her.
