In loving memory of Judith Marie Williams: 1944-2024


Judith Marie Williams died June 8 at her home in Olympia. She was born June 13, 1944, to Don and Dorothy Renecker.

She worked in the food service Industry her whole life. In 1979, she went to work as a bartender for the Chehalis Ribeye when it first opened. This is where she was best known for her exceptional customer service and her ability to remember every joke she ever heard. Up until the very end of her life, she never lost her sense of humor.

Her interests included working in her yard and home. Every home she lived in was meticulously decorated.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Don Renecker and Dorothy Crowell; and her sister, Patty Stam.

She is survived by her partner, Patrick Gallagher; son, Steve Hansen; daughter, Jill Carlson (Jerry); seven grandchildren, Krystal, Tyler, Austin, Sven, Nicole, Kasse and Coulsen; and two great-grandchildren, Desmond and Harper.

A special thank you to the Providence Hospice Care team.

There will be a family graveside interment at a later time.
