Alma Jean Williams, cherished wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend, died peacefully in her home with family at her side on May 30, 2014.

She also worked with her husband building their homes, and building/remodeling homes for many others in Morgan County and around the country.

Jean loved gardening and enjoyed playing bridge. She was a was a long-time member of the United Methodist Church where she also taught Sunday school and was a 60-year member of Beta Sigma Phi. She was affectionately called "GG" by her grandchildren and great grandchildren and leaves a legacy of positive spirit, thoughtful intelligence, social consciousness and a caring heart. We are saddened by the loss of her daily presence in our lives but know that we were truly blessed for the time we had with her. Her love will remain in our hearts forever.
