Williamson was a devoted wife and mother and she brought joy to those who knew her playful spirit. She gave her time freely through years of volunteering and service to others. She was a good person.

Her presence made the room a better place, and much more fun. She made laughter and mischief and brought us all along to the party that life can be.

God gave her to Owen, and Owen to her. We are all blessed to have been witness to his divine plan for June and Owen and their lives’ testimony to commitment, devotion and faith.

A funeral mass will be held at St. Paul Catholic Church in Vicksburg, on Monday, Jan. 17 at 10:30 a.m. under the direction of Fisher-Riles Funeral Home.
