Williams, Lucille "Lucy"

Middleton: Lucille "Lucy", Williams, age 83, died peacefully surrounded by her family at Heritage Senior Living in Middleton on Sunday, March 3, 2019. Lucy was born in Flint, Michigan on April 6, 1935.

She received a Masters in Education and taught special education for many years. She later received her Master's in Counseling and was a therapist for over 30 years at Prairie Counseling Services in Sun Prairie. She was a member of Temple Beth El and was active in the temple Sisterhood. She also served on the board of the Friends of the Waisman Center. Lucy thoroughly enjoyed her family and her many friends. All will miss long walks, long talks, and lots of laughter.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 36 years, Meyer (Mike) Williams and her parents. She was previously married to the late Allen S. Fox, and the late Morton S. Perlmutter.

Lucy is survived by her children Roberta (Glen) Hogoboom of Fitchburg, Beth V. Ripp of Madison, step children Louis D. Williams of Chicago, Wendy Williams of Spring Green, grandchildren Jan (Andrew) Hyatt of Cottage Grove, Charles Hogoboom of Madison,
Rachel (Kelby) Thomas of Spring Green, Noah (Mallory) Bocek of Spring Green, great grandchildren
Samantha Hyatt, Finley and Brooks Bocek, sister Florence Levin of Detroit, and many nieces and nephews.

We would like to thank everyone who took part in Lucy's care, especially Lisa Hanna, the staff at Heritage Senior Living, the doctors and nurses at UW Carbone Cancer Center, and Agrace Hospice Care.

A memorial is being planned for a later date. Please share a memory.

I had the pleasure and honor of working with Lucy at Prairie Counseling for 23 years. She was both a colleague and mentor. She was well loved by the staff and her clients. Prairie Counseling is not the same without her; she will be sorely missed. Lucy never lost her sense of humor, and there was always a twinkle in her eyes.

When her beloved friend Helen became too weak to get to our Japanese Crane tai-chi group under her own power, Lucy began escorting her. Lucy was that kind of friend! When Helen died, Lucy continued to join our gatherings—much to our delight. Her compassion and grace were boundless; the twinkle in her eye infectious. I am ever grateful for the time she shared with us.

I met Lucy through our Wednesday Japanese Crane group. Lucy was kind, very funny (had wonderful stories), and was an attentive listener. I saw her in action at her Temple during Food-O-Rama. and admired her spirit and ability to lead. We will all miss her very much.

I met Lucy through a Japanese Crane exercise group. Generous, witty, and warm, she was much loved by our group. We will miss her twinkling smile and wise presence.
