Margaret Marie Williams
Born February 10, 1925
Margaret Marie Williams, age 90, of New Castle, DE, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, February 6, 2016.
Margaret was born in Greensboro, NC on February 10, 1925, and was one of five children of the late James R. and Lula (Steinback) Mead.
She was adored by both family and friends alike. The grief left behind in the wake of her absence is only abated by the knowledge that Margaret is looking down from Heaven, reunited with her parents, angels by her side.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by 3 siblings. Margaret is survived by her husband, Frank L. Williams; daughter, Sandra Williams of Oak Orchard, DE; brother, Carl Mead of Rehoboth, DE; granddaughters, Shanan Linton and Samantha Newman, both of Ellendale, DE and Amanda Flick of Suffolk, VA; and 7 great grandchildren.
The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Heather Banning for the loving and supportive care she provided to Margaret.
At the request of the family, service and interment will be held privately.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in Margaret’s memory may be made to Delaware Hospice, 100 Patriots Way, Milford, DE 19963.
8 Condolences for Margaret Marie Williams
My grandma was amazing. She was kind and compassionate, humble and wise, honest and just down right beautiful. I can’t recall a single time when i needed her that she wasn’t there, to listen to me, comfort me, to guide me through it. She was my rock for many many years. Life won’t be the same without her. I will miss her everyday.
Thought’s and prayers are with Margaret’s family during this sad time! I will always remember “Gram” fondly and have wonderful memories of many times spent with you all throughout the years!! She leaves behind an amazing family and I am so grateful that you all have made me feel like such a huge part of it!! I know you all will be a great source of comfort and support to one another but am here if you need me!!!
Loving, generous and selfless are just some of the many qualities this wonderful woman offered to all that entered her “life” path. I will miss her laughter and the many conversations that we had together. She offered me much wisdom and was always concerned about my health and well being. There are very few individuals that could ever measure up to her loving qualities. I am very honored that God allowed her to come into my life.

My deepest sympathies to my Uncle Frank (Bankie) Williams, and my cousin, Sandra Williams and her family. My Aunt Margaret was a pillar in her family. A very kind, intelligent and loving woman who stood as a testament as to what a wife, mother, grandmother, sister in law, aunt and family member should be. I have many fond memories of her and those times I will hold dear to my heart. She was there for me when I lost my mom and dad and I’m forever grateful for her love. May God keep her and her family in his comforting arms and I pray for our family’s peace in her loss. (Aunt Margaret, hug my momma and Buzz for me, and know you’re loved and will be missed – love you, Cindie)

So sorry for your loss Samantha. Please express my condolences to your mother, sisters and grandfather. I hope that Sandra and I can talk soon. We love you and pray for your peace in knowing how special a woman she was to so many and that she is in God’s arms now. I know she’s looking down over us all.
Aunt Margaret was a beautiful example of a kind and compassionate person. I will remember her smile fondly as she was one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She truly was a joy to be around and she will be deeply missed.
It has been a long time since I saw Aunt Margaret. I just found out she passed. She was a very special lady. I will never forget the Christmas’ and birthdays. She would always make me a birthday cake. I will always remember her in her chair, legs wrapped in a blanket, the heat turned up, a coke nearby, and watching something on the television. I don’t know what else to say. I am in such a state of shock. Goodbye Aunt Margaret. I love you.
I am so sorry to read that you have left us, but at lease you will be with family on the other side.
Over the years you have given me advice and I thank you for that.
And I enjoyed you telling me stories about my mom. You will be missed very much.
