DEATH
Alice Hunt Williams
May 06, 2021

Alice Hunt Williams of Point Connett, Mattapoisett, died peacefully on Thursday, May 6, just three weeks shy of her 96th birthday. She was surrounded by friends and family.
Born in 1925, Al lived her first years in West Roxbury, MA, and moved with her family to Pawtucket, RI, as a child. There she met her best friend and soul mate Eleanor Tyler and they remained kindred spirits for life.
As a young woman Alice attended Bryant College, and then began a secretarial career at Brown University where her administrative skills were invaluable. She worked there as the manager of the Admissions Office in the 1940's and later, when her children were older, worked as an executive temp secretary.
When married and raising her three sons, she settled into many communities, from Cincinnati to Natick, Sudbury and Mattapoisett. Wherever she was, she always chose to volunteer--at the Women's Clubs, the Whaling Museum, the libraries--developing many lifelong friendships through her service.
Alice loved to read. She was a true champion of the local libraries in each town that she lived. She was equally passionate about sharing her love by teaching and coaching others to read and by always giving a book as a gift for a special occasion.
Alice loved to garden, preferring informal settings with daffodils and primroses. She always brought her favorite plants with her when she moved.
She loved all of her sons' cooking, a bourbon on the rocks, rabbits, and the sights and sounds of her family laughing together. At the beach when her grandchildren were young, she would float on her back, toes to the sky, while they swam and splashed around her. She looked gangbusters in blue.
Alice was the loving mother of Roger and wife Becky, Colin and wife Eve, and Douglas and beloved wife Betsy. She was grandmother to seven and great grandmother to three!
In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to The Buzzards Bay Coalition or the Mattapoisett Public Library.
Her private arrangements are with the Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home For Funerals, 50 County Rd., Mattapoisett. For online guestbook, please visit www.saundersdwyer.com.
