Betsy Markham Williams

November 10, 1928 — April 14, 2024

Betsy Markham Williams passed away quietly and peacefully on Sunday, April 14, 2024. Born in the San Marco area of Jacksonville, Florida, on November 10, 1928, Betsy was a graduate of Landon High School.  On February 15, 1947 she married Cecil Williams, also a Landon High graduate and they had a wonderful life together for 67 years until Cecil’s death in 2015.  Betsy and Cecil raised four children in the Arlington area of Jacksonville and were long-standing members of Arlington United Methodist Church.  In 1979 they built their beloved retirement home on the St. Johns River near Green Cove Springs where she remained until moving to Bartram Lakes two years ago. She is survived by her four children: Leslie (Margaret), Janice (Ron), Susan (Randy), and Gary (Jackie); nine grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; sister-in-law, Carolyn Moody and numerous nieces and nephews including Peggy Cavaleri and Nancy Gantz.

Betsy’s numerous hobbies included sewing, quilting, painting, reading and playing games.  Her greatest joy in life, however came from being a mom and taking care of her family.  Known for her affable smile and willingness to strike up a pleasant conversation with anyone she met, (or just happened to be standing next to her), Betsy treated everyone warmly and with the upmost dignity and respect and she will be missed by all who knew her.  A special thank you to the staff of Bartram Lakes for taking care of her with such kindness and compassion.
