THERESA ELOISE WILLIAMS
October 5, 1946 ~ March 22, 2014
Theresa Williams, 67, of Pullman, WA, passed away on March 22, 2014 at home. Theresa was born Oct. 5, 1946 in San Francisco, CA to Edward and Gloria (French) Foley.
She grew up in the Bay Area of California and following high school graduation attended San Jose State College, where she received her Bachelor's degree.
Theresa taught school in the Bay Area for a time until moving to Vancouver, WA with her family in 1978 to assume ownership of "The Deli Shoppe" in downtown Vancouver.
Theresa later returned to her love for teaching where her students and fellow staff at Lewis and Clark Alternative High School were a great joy to her.
In 2006, Theresa moved to Pullman, WA where she was able to combine her passion for hospitality and young lives in her work as the Franklin Elementary school cook. She was always a smiling face and was adored by all the students who affectionately called her Mrs. Williams.
Theresa was a member of Living Faith Fellowship Church and will be remembered as one who spoke words of life and encouragement in a way that touched many lives.
She leaves a legacy of loving Jesus and loving others and this will live on in her three daughters, Maureen (Dave) Vaillancourt of Santa Rosa, CA, Laura Williams of Austin, TX, Suzanne (Joe) Fitzgerald of Pullman; sister, Trish (Steve) Foley of Santa Cruz, CA; brother, Lou Clinton of Royal Oaks, CA; and her six grandchildren, whom she adored.
