OBITUARY: Elaine Williams


Elaine Williams, beloved wife to John Randy Williams and mother to Lou Addison and Robert Williams, of Lebanon, TN passed away peacefully at home surrounded with family on Wednesday night May 22, 2024 at the age of 75.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Fred and Lorraine Allen, her sister, Louwanna Allen and brother, Eddie Allen.

She is survived by her husband, John “Randy” Williams, two children, Lou Addison and Robert Williams and two grandchildren, Lauren and Kalleen who will never forget the love and strength she brought to their lives.

She was born in Nashville, TN in 1949 to Fred and Lorraine Allen.

She was raised to be a hard worker from early on helping her father on home building sites and assisting her mother in maintaining the family motel. She later attended Glencliff High School. She grew up quickly and became a hard working mother and loving wife herself.

She was vastly successful in several different fields throughout her life. Those who knew her would think she was capable of anything. Elaine was of small stature but was a strong and tough woman of enormous personality (a true character). She was known “to have never met a stranger” as she always had kind words and open ears for anyone who encountered her.

A Celebration of Life service will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2024 at 2 p.m. with visitation from 1 p.m. until the service at Partlow Funeral Chapel, 602 South Cumberland St., Lebanon, TN

In lieu of flowers, the family requests making a donation to the charity of your choice.
