Amesbury, MA – Melinda L. Williams, 73, of Amesbury, formerly of Westfield, MA and Iuka, MS, passed away on Friday, March 29, 2019 in the company of her devoted granddaughter. She was born in Maude, AL on November 11, 1945, a daughter of the late Cecil E. and Delila Mae (Cornelius) Hutcheson. Raised in Tishimingo, MS, she graduated from Tishimingo High School where she made many life-long friends. Following graduation she worked as a general practice nurse, then became an investigator - working with state and local law enforcement before an injury halted her career. Her primary focus was, and would remain, supporting & loving her family to the best of her ability. Despite dealing with chronic pain, she put others ahead of herself, and wanted to see her children lead happy and successful lives. Melinda had a “green thumb” and could grow anything, but her favorites were large roses and African violets. She also enjoyed watching the local birds, snowy owls, and eagles. Her grand-dog, Juniper, visited often and always made her smile. She loved spending time with family and always put others first. Her kindness, humor, love, and enthusiasm will be missed by all who knew her. She shared 40 years of marriage with her late husband David K. Williams, who predeceased her in November, 2017. Surviving family members include her 3 children, Susie Williams (Salt Lake City, UT), Lee Williams (North Pole, AK) Michael Spencer and his wife Melissa, (Hernando, MS); her step-daughter, Kim May (Williams) and her children: Kira, Erica, Elena, Christian, and Emmie; 4 grandchildren, Tiffani, Allie, Austin and Blake; Her sister, Martha Jean Daily (husband, Coy Daily), and several nieces and nephews. Melinda & David helped raise their granddaughter, Tiffani. She remained their loving caretaker in life. In addition to her parents and husband, she was predeceased by her brother, James Etheridge (J.E.) Hutcheson. At Melinda’s request all services will be private. Contributions to her memorial may be made to Tiffani Williams at 185 Main Street, Amesbury, MA 01913. Contributions will benefit a memorial garden and assembly later in 2019.
