Stella A. (Toots) Williams
Stella A. (Toots) Williams, age 79, of Livermore Rd., Meadville has joined her family in Heaven after an extended illness on Tuesday September 10, 2019. She was born March 21, 1940 in Meadville to the late Alexander and Cecelia (Lominski) Williams. She married Ronald L. Williams on July 11, 1959 and they spent 60 wonderful years together.
Toots graduated from Meadville High School. She was proud to start babysitting when she was 12 years old. While in high school, she worked at Shyrock's after school and at Spaulding's, where she was working when she married Ron. She was also a cashier at Super Duper Grocery store and an assistant for orthodontist Dr. Tesone. But the job she loved the most was as a cook for Crawford Central School District for 35 years. She loved to see the kids every day.
She enjoyed reading, going out on the boat with family and friends and car cruise- ins. She was best known for her cooking and baking. She always had a homemade dessert in the house. Toots started a tradition with her children of making Christmas sugar cookies that continued down to her great- grandchildren.
