Estella J. Bosley Williams was born on Sept. 25, 1917, in Edler, Baca County, Colo., and has gone to be with the Lord on Aug. 14, 2010.
Estella embraced life with a view of knowing each day was an opportunity to share her love and tenderness with all she encountered. Along her journey she enjoyed the greatest gift in life-her family.
Estella married Elmer J. Williams Jan. 21, 1944, in Wichita, Kan. Their residences included Wichita, Uniontown, Kan., and Mount Vernon, Wash.
She was preceded in death by her husband, two sister and two brothers.
She is survived by her daughter Kathy Combs of Mount Vernon, Wash.; and grandchildren Jeni Huffstetler, Jaci Garcia and Ernesto Roque, Jessica and Rey Roque, Kati and Gregg Collins; great grandchildren Amanda and Alyssa Huffstetler, Ryan and Tyler Roque, Kain Copps-Collins and Kaydn Collins.
She shaped and touched many lives through her love of life and caring for others. The joy of creating her ceramics and porcelain dolls as well as baking her infamous and delicious pastries, cinnamon toast, caramel corn and cakes shared with all. Her smile and happy disposition was a joy to everyone who knew her.
