July 7, 1947 ~ March 5, 2022

Born in: San Antonio, Texas
Resided in: San Antonio, Texas

Marie Juliet Williams was born July 7, 1947 and has always believed that God gave her many blessings, giving her so many people that loved her as much as she loved them.

God graced us with the presence of Julie “Nana” Williams for almost ¾ of a decade and she gained her wings to heaven on Mar 5th, 2022.

During her time on this earth, she showed many outrageous acts of love, kindness and honesty that had no boundaries. She loved God, her loving husband and two boys (when they weren’t being little “poops”), happy hour and wine with friends, her granddaughters and throwing a good party.

Her zest for life always attracted new friends no matter where she went. She attended Edgewood High School and kept in touch with many of her friends for a lifetime. She worked in banking and gathered a few more friends to join along her life’s journey.

She is preceded in death by her husband, David J Williams, Jr., her father Lee Mena, mother, Bennie Perez Mena, and her younger brother George Mena.

She is survived by her loving son Christopher Andrew Williams who was with her until the end.

She is also survived by her son Greg “the doctor” Williams, his wife Roxanne and their children Ashley Nicole and Shelby Lynn who themselves added great grandchildren to the legacy.
She loved spending time with family and that included her cousins. She is survived by cousins Gracie Baldwin, Johnny Hernandez, Valde Perez, and Jaime Perez.

Lastly, she is survived by the extended family that picked her and called her Nana, her “adopted” daughter Ronda and “granddaughter” Reagan Caballero along with their extended family.

We all thought she could never pass & she never believed she would be here this long. She stayed for as long as she could and now her laugh and strong spirit will live on to continue to touch the people that knew and loved her the most.

A Committal Ceremony will be held at Ft Sam Cemetery on Wednesday, April 13th, 2022 at 10:15 am.  A Celebration of Life gathering will be held at Hearthstone Bakery immediately after the Committal Ceremony. A light brunch will be served as we gather to share the joys that Julie brought to our lives and the friendships she built to connect us all. Many loved ones will be following the brunch with Julie’s favorite Happy Hour, Saltgrass. All are welcome to join and enjoy provided appetizers. Cocktails and entrees available for purchase. We hope to see all of Julie’s many loved ones, friends, her teacher family, banking buddies and friends that became family to celebrate a wonderful life.
