Barbara Williams

Barbara Williams, 78, died peacefully Thursday, December 23, 2021, at the Hospice House in Hutchinson, Kansas. She was born in Wichita, KS on April 5, 1943, to W. Clarence and Lena (Morris) Layton.

Barb graduated from North High School, in 1961, and in the fall moved into the residence hall at Central College in McPherson, KS. She eventually met a young local man, Rodney Williams, and he aggravated her just enough that she eventually fell in love with him. The two were married August 17, 1963, and decided to make McPherson their home. They were blessed with one child, Bradley, born in May of 1967. She loved being a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother; and adored her close friends that became family as well. Barb was a collector and enjoyed finding new treasures and antiques. She also enjoyed her crafts, spending time with family and friends, and occasional visits to the casino.

Barbara is survived by her son Bradley (Carol) Williams of Pace, FL, her two grandsons Erich (Brandy) Williams of Milton, FL, and Samuel (Abby) Williams of McPherson, KS, two great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

Barb was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years Rodney Williams, her parents Clarence and Lena Layton, her brothers and sisters-in-law Lester L. (Barbara) Layton, Gerald D. (Elaine) Layton and Earl E. (Audry) Layton.

The family will receive friends from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Thursday, December 30, 2021, at Stockham Family Funeral Home.
