Renette Williams
Waterford- For many, March 9th was just another day with the sun shining, except for the Williams family who will forever remember it as the closing chapter of Renette Telage Williams book of life.
Renette was born October 13, 1943, and was predeceased by her parents David Telage and Rose King Telage. She was predeceased by the love of her life, Dicky Do Wop Williams as she liked to call him. Rene was also predeceased by one brother David Telage, and one grandson Vincent Lawrence Jones. Renette is survived by her brother Donald Telage, children Suzette Jones, Janine Williams, Richard Williams and Jeremy Williams.; grandchildren Anastasia, Alexandra, Taylor, Chassity, Terrence and Isabella; 12 grandchildren.
Thinking upon Renette one word comes to mind, “strength”, but that would be an understatement when speaking about out “Nana Bear”. For when it came to her clan all were weary cuz her claws were sharpened and ever ready to protect. Cultured and refined are only a few words to describe our Nana Bear.
The Foundation of Renette was built with none other than her husband of 59 years, “Dicky DoWop” whom upon first laying eyes on him at the tender age of 12, said and I quote, “I’m going to marry him”. Together they carved out a life and family together. For us, their love at first sight story set the bar for love and marriage.
Renette was an amazing cook and avid reader. She graduated from St. Bernard High School and received a liberal arts degree from Three Rivers College. Rene retired from the DDS after 25 years of service. A career that she found complete satisfaction. After retirement Renette dedicated her life to her grandchildren and great grandchildren, but most important to Bella, the youngest of her grandchildren whom she cared for after the passing of her mother. Bella was the light in Renette’s eyes.
