Beverly Margaret Williams

April 18, 1956 - September 4, 2021

Beverly Margaret Williams, age 65, of Newark, DE, passed away on September 4, 2021.

Born in Newark, DE on April 18, 1956, she was a daughter of the late Aaron and Anne (Cribbes) Shalk. Beverly resided in Newark until her graduation from Christiana High School. She most recently worked as an EFT manager for Bancorp in Wilmington until her retirement.

Throughout her life, she enjoyed traveling with her late husband, Donald “Don” Williams, and more recently with her grandchildren. Beverly especially enjoyed visiting with her extended family in Scotland, the beautiful weather of the Caribbean, and a good crab restaurant on the beach. She was an avid animal lover and was never long without a dog or cat to care for! Beverly also “adopted” a share of the neighborhood birds and squirrels, which she loved to watch and feed. She cherished her family and friends and will be sorely missed by those who knew her well.

In addition to her parents, Beverly was preceded in death by her husband, Donald W. Williams. She is survived by her son, Aaron Williams (Heather); step-son, Danny Williams; grandchildren and great-grandchildren; brothers, Colin Shalk and Sandy Shalk (Chris); and many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.

All services will be held privately, due to COVID-19. Details of the private service may be obtained by contacting Beverly’s son, Aaron Williams at [email protected].
