Dawn Williams

 Dawn Ann Williams of Antigo passed away on Sept. 13, 2020, at The Bay at Eastview, at the age of 92.

Dawn was born on Oct. 9, 1927 to the late Frank and Marie (Schroepfer) Delaney in Antigo.

Dawn attended St. John Grade School and Antigo High School. On Dec. 31, 1943, she was united in marriage to Dale Williams. He preceded her in death in 1997. Dawn was a homemaker, as well as working at Glowens Department Store and City Gas Company.

Dawn was a member of St. John Catholic Church. There, she was a volunteer with the funeral luncheon committee and First Friday. Dawn loved working in the woods and building their home in Pearson. She was famous for her lemon poppy seed bread and potato salad. She enjoyed walking, playing double solitaire, being outside, gardening, listening to country music, and having her early morning coffee with family. Dawn also had an appreciation for her husband’s love of the Packers. If you were to ask Dawn what her secret was to being so healthy at her age, she would say, “Stay busy and love each other.” Dawn’s greatest treasure was her family.
