Lovella Louise Williams

November 25, 1928 — July 8, 2020

Lovella Louise (Peggy) Williams passed away on July 8, 2020 in Sulphur, Oklahoma. Peggy was born on November 25, 1928 to William Clay Johnson and Ruby Ellen (Wilder) Johnson at their home in Roff, Oklahoma.

Peggy attended elementary and high school at Roff Public Schools. After graduation from high school, she moved to Spokane, Washington to live with her brother, Lloyd and sister-in-law Bessie while she waited for her beloved high school sweetheart who served in the U.S. Army occupation forces in Japan to be discharged and return home. Once this happened, she married Billy Ray (Bill) Williams in Seattle, Washington on February 7, 1948. Peggy and Bill eventually settled in Roff, Oklahoma.

Peggy worked for 35 years in various administrative civil service capacities for the United States Department of Agriculture until her retirement in 1989.

Peggy was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church of Roff, Oklahoma. Through the years she served as Treasurer, published the weekly church bulletin, sang in the choir and spent endless hours volunteering in the church kitchen providing meals for various events.

Peggy was an excellent cook and enjoyed sharing her talents with family and friends. She loved collecting antiques, reading, music and all sorts of handwork such as knitting, crochet and sewing and also became a very good artist of oil paintings, winning several awards at area art shows. She made a beautiful home for her family during her lifetime.

Peggy is preceded in death by one son, Forrest Albert Williams, seven brothers, Albert Johnson, Lloyd Johnson, Charles Johnson, Wayne Johnson, Corbin Johnson, Maurice Johnson and Melvin Johnson, and two sisters, Rudean (Johnson) Clifton and Mildred (Sue) (Johnson) Condren.

Peggy is survived by her sister Jo Johnson Harris, Peggy’s husband of 72 years, Bill Williams, one daughter Cindy Williams Walkowski and her husband Joe, one son, Mark Williams and his wife Lisa. She is also survived by granddaughter, Whitney Gdanski and her husband David, granddaughter Taylor Jennings and her husband Nick, granddaughter Blaire Boggs Henderson and her husband Wacey, granddaughter Lauren Williams, grandson Jacob Williams and grandson Gunnar Williams. Surviving great grandchildren include Joel David Gdanski, Knox and Liam Jennings, Conner Williams and Saige Henderson.

A memorial service celebrating Peggy’s life will be held at a future date.
