Doris Marie (Forrester) Williams Obituary
Doris Marie Williams

Doris Marie (Forrester) Williams, age 76, passed away peacefully on December 23, 2012 at her home surrounded by family. She was born to Fronia (Prater) Forrester and George Forrester on January 14, 1936 in Damascus, VA. The family moved to Longview, WA when Doris was a young child. She graduated from R.A. Long High School in 1954. It was in Longview that Doris met the love of her life, Don Williams. After they married, Doris and Don relocated to the Seattle area where they raised three sons and 7 grandchildren.

Doris fiercely loved life and people, especially her family and friends. Doris and Don enjoyed traveling all over the country to visit them. Doris will forever be remembered as a kind and loving friend, sister, wife, mother and grandmother. Her sense of humor and immense courage, especially in the face of ALS, were inspirational and she will be deeply missed.

She is survived by her beloved husband Don, her sons, Steve (Val), Scott (Angie) and Kevin (Kelley), her brother John Forrester (Linda), and her grandchildren, Jimi, Kevin, Jr., Kelsey, Kyle, Amanda (Tyler), Erika and Megan.

A celebration of Doris's life will be held at the Mill Creek Community Church in Mill Creek, WA on January 2, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. In addition, a service will be held in Longview at the First Christian Church on January 4, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking that donations in Doris's honor be given to the Evergreen Chapter of the ALS Association (webwa.alsa.org), or to Evergreen Hospice (evergreenhealth.com/hospice).
