Doris “Jeanne” Williams passed suddenly on Jan. 12, 2014, at the age of 72. She was with friends planning yet another travel adventure.
Treasured husband, Jim, and her parents, Norman Malick and Muriel Drew, preceded her in death.
Jeanne’s work life began as a clerk for Joseph E. Seagram & Sons, Inc., in South San Francisco. She retired from Seagram’s as a production manager. After “retirement,” she did accounting for several local entities.
Her love for adventures included flying antique aircraft; giving air-shows in her Marguart Charger bi-plane, camping, extensive traveling, horses, motorcycles and singing in the Sonoma Valley Chorale.
Jeanne lived her life to its fullest; she was passionate about all the things she did, was sincere, charismatic, had a great sense of humor, a quick and inquisitive mind, was generous and giving in life.
She knew that true wealth in life were friends and she treasured each one. Her ability to keep in contact with them all – worldwide was amazing. Jeanne always gave a warm hug and smile. Her laugh was contagious. She never hung up the phone without saying, “love you!”
A memorial will take place in the near future.
