Peggy Bradfield Williams

Peggy Bradfield Williams, age 89 and of Gainesville, Florida, died January 21, 2016, at Haven Hospice in Gainesville. She plainly stated she wanted a brief obituary. Her children risk an eternal lecture from her by offering herein a few more words than she might have preferred. Mama Peg, as she was known in her family, was an inspiration to her children and a foundation of her family. Soon after marrying Robert J. Williams, Jr., in 1951, she left her teaching career to begin the challenging work of raising and managing a family. As her children and grandchildren married, she accepted those spouses into the family with love and considered them her own. Those who predeceased her include Robert, her husband of almost 54 years, her son (in-law), Jack Funderburk, and her life-long best friend and sister-in-life, Mary Elizabeth Tillman. Those left to be saddened by her death but laughing with their memories include her children, Kathryn Ann Williams Funderburk of Navarre, Florida; Robert Lee & Cheryll Lynn Williams of Gainesville; and John Michael Williams of Gainesville; her grandchildren, Diane & Marc Gagnon of Gainesville; Jason Anthony Funderburk of San Antonio, Texas; Robert Scottley & Hannah Williams of St Augustine; and Kendra & Bill Booth of Navarre, Florida; and her great-grandsons – David Gagnon, John Booth, Nathan Booth and Michael Gagnon. Like most mothers, Mama Peg had many ‘momisms’ she would repeat time and again for us to incorporate into our lives. We are left with many of those but offer now the one where she said “You’ll miss me when I’m gone.” And with that, she proved herself correct once again. The family and Mama Peg requested no service so none will be held. If you wish to make a memorial contribution, the family requests you consider a donation in her memory to Haven Hospice, 4200 NW 90th Boulevard, Gainesville, FL 32606.
