Agnes "Mickey" Williams Obituary
Agnes "Mickey" Williams, 86, of Alamogordo, passed into eternal rest Tuesday, April 19, 2011.
Mickey was born March 6, 1925, in Lilly, Pa. She moved with her parents and family from Pennsylvania to El Paso, and then to Wink, Texas. She graduated from Wink High School in 1943. She was working as a telephone operator at the Rattlesnake Air Base in Pyote, Texas, where she met James Williams, who was in the Army Air Force during World War II. They married July 29, 1945, and lived in Pratt, Kan., before relocating to Inglewood, Calif., in 1947. While in California, they had two children, Patricia and James.
On a vacation in 1954, Mickey and Jim visited New Mexico and discovered a nice apple farm for sale in Bent. They purchased the farm and moved their family from California. They had two additional children: Linda and Danny. Mickey managed the farm and sold apples while raising four children. Mickey and Jim retired to Alamogordo in 1996.
Mickey is survived by two brothers, Thomas Hodgett, of Wink, and George Hodgett (Betty), of Houston; and four children: Patricia Pendergraft (Carl), of Las Cruces; James Williams (Lori), of Amarillo, Texas; Linda Hardisty (Don), of Albuquerque; and Dan Williams, of Alamogordo. She is also survived by seven grandchildren: Leah Carbajal (Gabriel), Elana Rambow (Dean), Megan Fokken (Micky), Gayle Williams (Ryan), Philip Scroggins, Michael Hardisty (Lisa) and Robert Hardisty (Joelle). There are six great-grandchildren: Reyes Carbajal, Maia Carbajal, Landon Williams, Cormac Mitchell, Joshua Fokken and Eli Rambow.
