Mary Ann Williams Obituary
Mary Ann Williams 78, of Chandler, Arizona (formerly of Gladwin) passed away on Aug. 29, 2018, after a long illness. She was born in Gladwin on Dec. 29, 1939 to Frank and Elizabeth (Gothard) Auer. Mary Ann was a 1958 graduate of Gladwin High School. She married Robert (Bob) Williams on Oct. 31, 1959 and they had two daughters. She was primarily a stay at home mom while her girls were growing up, but she did occasional work at Meadow Lanes Bowling Alley, which was a family owned business at the time.
Bob and Mary Ann headed West in the early 80s, first to Colorado and then to Arizona, where they set down roots. She loved children, and worked for both Sunrise and Montessori Pre Schools. She eventually started her own cleaning business, in which she worked until her retirement.
She is survived by Bob, her loving husband of 58 years, two daughters: Tammy (Doug) Behnke of La Porte, IN and Jackie (Mike) Johnson of Chandler, AZ; two granddaughters, Marisa Behnke of Detroit, MI and Elise Behnke of LaPorte, IN; brother, Ric (Sheila) Auer of Gladwin, MI, sister-in-law: Beverly Grove of Gladwin, MI; as well as several cousins, nieces, nephews and their children.
A memorial service is being planned. Donations can be made to Suncrest Hospice of Phoenix.
