Williams, Alyson  
Williams, Alyson Alyson Williams, 1960-2015, Alyson joined her father Norm, sailing the Long Island Sound at sunrise, July 19th, after a yearlong battle with cancer. Alyson was a true New England girl, proud of her Boston sailing merchant heritage. Born in Worcester, Mass. & raised in Weston, Conn, she chose to live near her family & friends in Blackrock, where she could garden & smell the salt air. She was the daughter of Cynthia Williams, of Weston, and sister to Heather Williams and Carrie Gilbertie, both formerly of Weston, and Brother in Laws Colin Walklet and Tom Gilbertie. She was the doting Aunt to Taylor Walklet, and Sarah & Grace Gilbertie. Alyson also leaves her longtime companion David Clogg of Blackrock, and his children Allison & Bryan Clogg, and she was a loving caregiver to Pita & Koda, her beloved animals. She was a best friend & soul sister to dozens. After attending art school in Boston, Alyson used her eye for style & color in a career as a graphic artist. Countless thousands see & wear her designs today. Alyson's love of music & friends defined her life. As a member of the greater Grateful Dead family, Alyson traveled, met & bonded with hundreds, many of which went on to become her lifelong friends & co-workers. It was only natural that Alyson would turn that love of music into a 25+-year career in the music industry. From art director at Dupree's Diamond News, to Merch Manager at the Capitol Theatre, Aly always inspired others with her 'get the job done' attitude, self integrity & beautiful smile. As a founding member of the Gathering of the Vibes, She was a tireless champion of other artists & craft vendors. She mentored, corroborated with, and occasionally chastised others to produce one of the most beautiful & successful Arts & Craft lines in the business. Alyson would speak of those moments, when standing in a crowd at a concert, when the musicians & the audience would come together to form a unique blending of the human sprit. She will live on…every time we close our eyes & lose ourselves in the pure pleasure listening to the musical notes of a guitar solo. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 15, at 1:00 pm at Norfield Congregational Church in Weston. Memorial donations in her name can be made to The Aspetuck Land Trust, P.O. Box 444, Westport, Ct. 06880, or www.aspetucklandtrust.org
