Doris Jean Albert Williams


Doris Jean (Albert) Williams has left the building. She departed on her last boat ride on November 11, 2020.

Ever a free spirit, she loved dancing to Rock and Roll in the living room or sock hops, the wind in her hair while riding with the top down in her convertible, and skiing slalom on her beloved Claytor Lake. A graduate of Pearisburg High School, she attended Concord and Radford College and was the dietician of Radford Hospital for many years. She loved hosting and attending gatherings especially when they included delicious culinary delights. She loved a cup of coffee, sun on her face and an afternoon swim.

She was preceded in death by parents, G. Ralph and Winnie Albert; and brother, Barry Albert. 

Doris is survived by her husband of 52 years Eddie Williams; daughters, Scarlett Williams (Cavan Fleming and granddaughter Emory Fleming), Misti Williams (Fiona O’Neill); sisters Elsie Fern and Sonya Falls.

The family would like to thank Good Samaritan Hospice for their love and care.

Due to COVID, there will be no service or gathering at this time. We prefer friends and family to stay healthy and alive.

Doris loved music. Her celebration of life playlist includes: He Stopped Loving Her Today; For the Good Times; Bop; Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox; Farewell Party. We offer her famous Italian Cream Cake recipe to those interested and welcome stories of the late, great Doris Williams so we can giggle in celebration of her overwhelming love and kindness.

Hey, While I was getting my mail one afternoon, Doris walked by me and spoke, "Hey Eddie!" I replied, "Hey Red!" Doris responded, "If you think my hair is red today, just wait until you see it tomorrow!" A fine lady, full of wit, and one who will be missed by all. My thoughts and best wishes for the Williams family. Eddie Rader

I am sorry for your loss. Doris was my boss when I worked at Radford High School my senior year in 1968-1969. She was a super person. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Keep her memories alive in your hearts. May the Almighty watch over you and give you peace. Linda Hinkley Lawson

Eddie and Mistie and Scarlett, Was so sorry to read of Doriss passing. I have known her since 1964 and loved Doris and her wonderful spirit. She was such a compassionate and caring person and over the years we have saw each other occasionally and it only took a few minutes and it was always like it was just yesterday that we were together. She gave me my first real job when I was a junior in high school and then introduced me to my husband years later. Think she may have introduced me to my first alcoholic drink at her trailer on the lake. We had some good times. Doris was always so much fun to be around and she loved her two daughters and was so proud of you and all your accomplishments. She was quiet the cook and I have some of her recipes. Would love to have Italian Creme Cake recipe. Eddie Vince sends his condolences and we have always said so many times that we were going to come up on the lake and see you and wish we had. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you. Her obituary was wonderful and I smiled and cried when I read it because it said exactly who she was and her wonderful SPIRIT.
