Lucille B. Williamson


Lucille B. Williamson, 95, passed away May 2, 2012, at Washington Odd Fellows Home, 534 Boyer Avenue, Walla Walla, Washington.

Lucille was born December 25, 1916, in Tripp County, South Dakota, to DeWitt T. and Alena Hansen Morrow. Raised by her sweet father along with three brothers and two sisters, her mother left the home when Lucille was eight years old, so she learned to bake bread for the family at a very young age. She and her older sister raised the younger children - they were their mother. She graduated from high school in Cody, Nebraska.

She met her future husband, Robert W. Williamson, at church where they fell in "love at first sight" and were married May 11, 1935, in Cody, less than 3 months from the time they met. They moved to Yakima, Washington in 1936. Her family remembers much love between all of them, with writing lots of letters and making many trips.

She enjoyed her role as a homemaker and her children and grandchildren always felt loved by her. She enjoyed her activities with her church. Her door was always open to anyone in need. She talked about forgiveness.

Lucille is survived by her daughter, Judith Williamson; grandchildren: Rob Van Hooser; Jeffery Wallace, Alena Nally, and Chris and Tamara Van Hooser; three great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband in 2005; two sisters and three brothers.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mountain View-Colonial DeWitt, 1551 Dalles Military Road, Walla Walla, Washington 99362.
