Obituary for DORIS MARIE WILLIAMS

Doris Marie Williams was born June 6, 1943 in Lusby, Maryland to the late David (who raised her from birth) and Helen Watkins of Lusby, Maryland. On Tuesday, September 11, 2012, Doris became critically ill and was rushed to the emergency room at Calvert Memorial Hospital in Prince Frederick Maryland. She succumbed to her illness and entered into eternal rest on September 17, 2012 at 10:40 a.m. Doris received her education in The Calvert County Public School System where she graduated from Brooks' High School, the class of 1962. Doris worked at the Fort Meade Military Base, where she traveled a great distance to serve humbly as a Snack Bar Cashier. As the years went by, she began to work with her mother and Dianne (sister-in-law) for Prince Georges Orthopedics, where she diligently served for over 25 years as a Physical Therapist Aide. Once she left Prince Georges Orthopedics, she began working for the Physical Therapy Sports Assessment Center, to carry on her cheerfully spirit with her new patients. Doris was a hard worker and in her own rite became a Spiritual Counselor to every patient she served. Doris would lend a listening ear to anyone who needed a friend. She worked up until the day she became extremely ill and could no longer labor, on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Doctors at the Washington Hospital Center had given prognosis that Doris wouldn't survive through the night, BUT God said not so; for He still had work for her to do! Through eleven challenging years of disability, Doris never murmured or complained; for she had wholeheartedly dedicated her life to God a long time ago before sickness ever served its unexpected notice. Doris' life took on additional challenges when she had to begin taking dialysis treatments. As she pressed her way through another obstacle, she soon became everyone s favorite at the Renal Care Partners in Prince Frederick, Maryland, where she went for her sessions. They all quickly took notice of her popular 'outer fit ', which was always the huge smile she wore on her face so generously. Before Doris became disabled in 2001, she faithfully attended The Galilee Baptist Church of Suitland, Maryland, under the late Rev. Dr. Eugene Weathers. She loved her new Pastor; the Rev. Dr. Lloyd T. McGriff, and the entire Galilee Church Family who continuously kept check on her and was truly concerned about her well-being. On June 28, 1975, Doris entered into Holy Matrimony to George D. Williams of Cumberland, Maryland. They lived in the Forestville area for many years where she befriended a multitude of people. In 2005, they decided and agreed to move back to Doris' hometown of Lusby, Maryland, where she was earnestly a light to the entire community. Doris will truly be missed for her gentle spirit and her enormous heart that embraced each and everyone who crossed her path. She leaves to cherish her memories, her devoted husband of thirty-seven years, George D. Williams; her biological father, Napolean Gross; one son, Robert (Robin, whom she loved and adored); four daughters, Michelle (DeRon, whom she loved as her own), DaSheia (Raymond Jr., a special friend whom she received with opened arms), Phyllis, Mischell (Charles, whom she admired and respected); eight grandchildren, Breland 'Her Baby', Brendan 'Nah ', Jerald, Steven, Cabria, Tracey, Travis and Marvin; one great grandchild, Da'Shaun; one sister, Betty (whom she loved so dearly because she spoiled her rotten); four brothers, Eric 'Lee' (her personal comedian), Gerald Sr. (her gentle soul), David Jr. 'Buddy' (whom she loved to life; deceased), Robert (her guardian angel; deceased); eight sister-in-laws, Naomi, Sheila, Dianne, Brenda, Carol, Juanita (Clifton), Joyce (Warren), Melva; one brother-in-law, Julius (who affectionately called her 'Blue'); (Doris took great pleasure in helping to raise her nieces and nephews), nieces, Donna, Shann, and LaShawne (Stephen); nephews, Anthony 'AJ', Glenwood 'Lee ', Linwood 'Levi' (Kyna), Juan 'Vonnie' (Monique) and Gerald II; special cousins, Irvin Jr. 'Bunny' (deceased), Sonny (deceased), Debbie, Patricia, Timmy, Ronald and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
