Laura L Williams

Laura L. Williams-On the morning of May 10, 2020, Laura L. Williams of Youngstown, passed away at Mercy Health St. Elizabeth Health Center at the age of 61.

Laura was born July 9, 1958 in Detroit, Michigan to the union of Ralph and Elaine Williams. She was the youngest of three children. She moved to Youngstown at a very young age graduating from the Rayen High School, class of 1976.

Laura loved to love people. She had an infectious laugh and a kind and compassionate spirit. Laura  had a passion for cooking and baking. They were both the highlights to any day of the week. Her door was always open for friends to drop by and enjoy a delicious meal.  She was known for her cakes and homemade rolls. Her quiet personal time was spent reading and crocheting, always surprising a loved one with a beautiful afghan.


Laura was a caring sister to two surviving siblings; Adrian ( Baxter) Wiffen  of New York , and David Wiffen of Los Angeles, CA; she also, leaves a niece Danielle and a great nephew Michael of California. Laura will also be deeply missed by her many cousins and huge extended family.  She was preceded in death by her parents.

Sadly, due to the current COVID-19 restrictions a private service will be held Tuesday, May 19, 2020.

I first met Laura while attending Covington Street school. We were both kindergarten students in the same class. My family later relocated when I was in the third grade at Jefferson elementary, again Laura and I were in the same classroom. Our friendship continued beyond graduation from The Rayen school class of 1976. The irony of our relationship we learned we were both born In Detroit, Mich in 1958 at Herman Kieffer hospital. Laura taught me to crochet with my right hand as I was a left handed person. The many, many laughs we shared will sorely be missed. Laura was a kindhearted and down to earth person. David and Adrian, lease accept my deepest condolences for your family's loss.
May you be comforted by the outpouring of love surrounding you

To the family of Laura Williams. My condolences to you on the passing of a wonderful, caring woman. I enjoyed our frequent conversations at the JCC, as we exercised with yoga and water aerobics, discussing recipes and concerns of the moment. I always ended our togetherness with a smile and feeling her caring warmth. She will be missed. Toni

Laura always had a smile and a big wonderful heart. Family meant everything to her, she cherish her family. Laura made crocheted a sweater for me - way back in the day! My heart and prayers to Adrian & David, their baby sister, her memory is forever blessed. Laura spoiled them both - you would have thought she was the big sister.
