Rosemary grew up in Crossville, Illinois where she graduated from Crossville High School in 1944. While she was working at the Crossville Baptist Church, she met an ex-military man named Roscoe Williams who had come to work at the Warren Petroleum Plant.

Granny, as she was affectionately known, was an avid reader who enjoyed book clubs, drama, gardening, collecting salt and pepper shakers, garage sales, and shopping. She will be dearly missed by her family and friends.

A sister, Ramona Timmons of Merritt Island, Florida and sister-in-law, Patti Taylor.
Grandchildren: John W. and Theresa Williams of Maysville; Brad and Jerri Williams of Edmond; and Libby Thomas of Lebanon, Tennessee & fiancé Ken Gandy of Ada.
