Arianna Marika Williams STONE RIDGE- Arianna Marika Williams, 21, of Stone Ridge, N.Y., was granted her Angel Wings on March 28, 2017. She was born in Warsaw, N.Y., May 7, 1995; a daughter of Mark A. and Andrea E. Lowe Williams. Arianna was a 2013 graduate of Rondout Valley High School and a licensed cosmetologist achieved from Ulster County BOCES. She attended and graduated from Ulster County Community College. She furthered her education SUNY New Paltz where she was a Dean’s List student with a major in sociology, minor in psychology and with a concentration in criminal justice. She completed her internship with Ulster County Probation Department in the summer of 2016. She would have graduated May 2017 and pursued her Masters at SUNY Albany in the fall of 2017. Arianna was employed by Health Alliance Hospital in Kingston where she worked telecommunications. She also worked the past 4 summers at Bethel Woods where she had the opportunity to enjoy many concerts. Playing games with family and friends was treasured, because we knew she would be champion. It was as important to her as it was to us that she win. We won by her infectious laugh and joyful smiles. Although Arianna’s life was so short to all, those who were touched by her fingerprint understand the quality of her existence, far exceeds the quantity of time in which she lived. She is survived by her parents, Mark and Andrea Williams of Stone Ridge; many aunts, uncles, and cousins; her best friends, Mathew Van Buren of Rosendale, Danyelle Ducker of New Paltz; as well as many instructors, classmates, and co workers. She also leaves behind her pet and “Best Buddy” Poobers.

My heart was deeply saddened to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers and with her family, friends, and co-workers through this difficult time. Arianna touched my life in a special way, with her bright happy smile, her positive outlook in life, and whenever I walked away from our conversations, I felt this sense of blissful peacefulness. I will miss her. Rest in peace Dear Arianna.

I met this beautiful soul four semesters ago as our first classes at New Paltz began. We were forced together by a school project and slowly became incredibly close. Her sarcasm and humor matched perfectly with mine. Ever since, she has been who I looked forward to seeing almost every day. She never knew it, because I was too prideful to tell her, but she played a huge role in my success at school. With my weekly mental breakdowns and her being there to sit in her car and listen and laugh with (and at) me made it easier. Walking in May won't be the same, but I know she'll be there. Arianna has impacted many lives and left lasting memories. She will be greatly missed. I'll be sure to save her seat in class, I know she would hate to miss those riveting lectures! Lol :P My condolences to her family and friends. She knew how loved she was. Trust me, she had nothing but beautiful things to say about her family! Forever in our hearts, baby girl. Fly high

Arianna was a very special and talented young woman whom we loved dearly. It was a joy to watch her grow from a teenager to a beautiful woman.
God must have needed a Angel because nothing else makes any sense.
Andrea we are here for you. Please reach out to us and the rest of Arianna's family and friends, you are not alone. Love, Robin, Ron & Tom Netzley

I'm truly heartbroken. This shining star would bring me chocolate milk on busy days because she knew I didn't get much of a break mixing chemo at Benedictine Hospital.
Her eyes and smile showed her heart. Beautiful person.

RIP my friend.

Dear Andrea and family,
I can't find any words to say how badly I feel for you. Arianna was a shining star with so many wonderful accomplishments and aspirations. She was filled with love for you and was a joy to know. From the first day I met you, it was clear that she was your proudest achievement. You raised a wonderful daughter and can be proud of all she did. I'm hoping your faith and your memories will help heal this terrible sorrow.

As a co-worker with Arianna at the hospital, she was always a cheerful, bubbling, smiling, and caring friend who lived life to its fullest. Arianna helped us all know the meaning of friendship... My heart goes out to all family, friends and co-workers that Arianna's life has touched... God bless all...

Arianna was such a bright light and one of the silliest and most fun of my sister, Allysa's friends. She stayed at our house a lot for fun sleepovers and she became another little sister to me. Her laugh will always be remembered. My heart goes out to her family. Sending much peace to the family during this time.

With love, Briann (Laik) Feliciano
