Obituary of Madeline Theresa Williams

Please share a memory of Madeline to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Madeline Theresa Williams passed this life after a short illness on January 22, 2023. She was born on November 17, 1932, to Antoinette and Frank James, Sr. in Washington, DC. Madeline was the youngest of six children, who are all now deceased. Her siblings were: Elizabeth Glenn, Frances Hill, Jesse James, Lillian Cradle, and Frank James, Jr. Madeline was baptized at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Washington, DC in 1941. Starting at a very young age, Madeline was educated in the Catholic parochial schools and convents until early adulthood. At the age of 18, she began living with her sister, Lillian. During that time, she would occasionally go to visit and stay over some nights and weekends with her sisters, Elizabeth and Frances. Later on, still in her early adult years, Madeline met and married, Albert Williams. They were married for many years until his death. During the years of Albert's illness, Madeline faithfully and patiently nursed and cared for him. Madeline took on difficult tasks and responsibilities without complaints or criticism. In the 1970's, Madeline was the Property Manager for a residential apartment building complex in Harlem, New York until the 2000's when she relocated to Atlantic City, New Jersey. Madeline enjoyed life by staying in contact with her family of sisters and nieces and nephews. She always visited and travelled to various places of interests with them. She loved shopping, going to Casinos, out to lunches, bus tours, and of course going to her daily masses at any of her favorite churches. She did not waste time on things that were of no interest to her. She was an extremely kind woman and always followed the Golden Rule "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Luke 6:31 and Matthew 7:12. Madeline always put God first place in her life. Everyone she met either liked her very much, or eventually grew to love her. She was close to being a perfect human being; although she would certainly deny it and say "God's not finished with me yet." It was a gift to know her and spend quality time with her. During Madeline's later time of illness in her life, she bore it patiently and remained close to God by reading her Bible, saying her daily rosary, listening to inspirational music and shows, and of course praying. In addition to her parents and siblings, Madeline is predeceased by: nieces, Victoria Christian West and Della Cradle; nephew, Jackie Glenn; and great-nephew, Tyrone Kennedy. Madeline leaves to cherish her memories: a dear and devoted friend of 35 years, Timothy Joseph Rivers; nieces, Valerie Barnes, Cecelia Tapp, Vivian Ross, Shirley Bennett; great-nephews, David, Michael and Eric Barnes, Nicholas Ross, David, Wayne Henry, and Gerald Kennedy; great-nieces, Ursula Blunt, Lisa Tapp, Theresa Scriven, Della and Rosetta Kennedy; and a host of many other family – some who reside in Maryland and Pennsylvania; and many cherished friends. A Mass of Christian Burial will be 11AM, Friday, February 3, 2023, Our Lady Star of the Sea Roman Catholic Church, 2601 Atlantic Avenue, Atlantic City, New Jersey, where friends may call from 10AM. Interment will be 1:30PM, Saturday, February 4, 2023, in Fort Lincoln Cemetery, 8401 Bladensburg Road, Brentwood, Maryland.
