In memory of
Patricia Ann Williams
Patricia Ann Williams Oct. 21, 1953 - Jan. 8, 2017 Resident of Santa Cruz It is with great shock, sorrow and sadness that we announce the passing of a loving mother, grandmother, wife, daughter, sister and friend, Patricia Ann Williams. Patricia was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY but was always a "California Girl" at heart. She followed that heart to San Francisco right after high school and ultimately moved to the Santa Cruz mountains before moving to town and settling on the west side of Santa Cruz where she built her home in which she died peacefully in her sleep on Sunday morning. Her amazing heart lives on in rest and peace, and its memory is inspiration to any and all looking to follow their dreams. Patricia always knew she wanted to be a mom. She had her kids young and once they reached school age she started working at Lipton's where she was employed for 10 years. After the plant closure, she picked herself up and dusted herself off to follow her heart, yet again, and pursue her passion of the aesthetic by launching a successful business as an Esthetician which she practiced with passion up to the day she passed away. Patricia's goal in life was to make her home, and the world, a beautiful place as well as support the ones she loved. She never wavered in her loving support of her family and in the end that is what life is all about. Though she died at a young age, her life was full of amazing experiences that were packed into her time on this earth. The family she created, the friendships she nurtured, will ensure her legacy through the deep impact she had on the lives of those who had the fortune to know her. Patricia leaves behind a loving husband of 44 years, James "Willie" Williams, sons Noel (Carrie) Williams, David (Kristin) Williams and daughter, Lisa Williams; 5 grandchildren, Owen, Maya, Gianna, Anthony and Ethan; Mother, Madeline Boyles; Brothers, Michael and Tom Boyles.
