Billie Sue Williamson, 79, departed to her heavenly home on March 16, 2009. She was born on October 9, 1929 in Palestine, Texas to Earl & Vera Johnson. She grew up in the Sulphur Springs area before moving to Houston and then on to Portland, Texas. Her 14-year marriage to Garland W. Williamson began on August 3, 1957. Billie was preceded in death by her loving husband Garland, who departed this earth on December 12, 1971, her precious daughter Sandy and her brother Earl (Buddy) Johnson.
She is survived by her daughter Mickey Ellis and husband Mike, grandchildren Chrissy and John Ellis, sisters Jeannie Bourland and Carrie Martin, brother-in-law Gene Williamson and wife Mary Sue, along with numerous nieces and nephews. Billie will be remembered by her sacrificial love of helping others through her church, her volunteer work at Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi and her compassion for anyone she saw in need. Billie’s love for family and friends, her radiant smile and her spunky personality will be missed by all of us who have laughed and cried with her over the years. Funeral services were held at Murray-Orwosky Funeral Home, Thursday, March 19, 2009.
Arrangements are under the direction of Murray-Orwosky Funeral Home.
