Patricia Elaine Black Williams, 86, of Warren, PA., died in her

early morning sleep on Friday, October 6, 2017 at the Rouse

Suites, Youngsville, PA. Born on September 18, 1931 in Warren,

PA, she was the daughter of Archie Daniel and Nellie Toner

Black. She was a graduate of Warren High School and married

Charles A. Williams in 1950. Together, they lived in La Bouie,

France while Charles served in the army during the Korean War.

She loved to travel with her husband and friends and visited

many countries in Europe and toured much of the United States.

Study Club, Lioness Club, the Girl Scouts as a Troop Leader and

proudly volunteered for many local causes: Meals on Wheels,

Warren General Hospital for 20 years, American Cancer Society,

and the First United Methodist Church.

Pat was always ready for a trip or a ride to anywhere, often riding

the TAWC Bus to her appointments and taking the long way

home just to enjoy the sights. She was fond of gardening,

lighthouses, covered bridges, taking trips by ships or trains,

Broadway musicals, old movies, Big Band music, Penn State

football games and anything social. She had many friends and

made new ones during every outing. Special friends in her life

whom she loved dearly and with whom she spent much time are

Joyce Brecht and family, Joy Nordin, neighbors Gary Widell and

Mike Flagstad, and hair stylist Sheila Gema at Shear Madness.

She was well known for her Sunday family dinners, Christmas

hard candy, delivering cookies and handing out chocolates to all

the TAWC bus drivers during the holidays. In recent years, she

enjoyed attending the Cable Hollow Community Church and

having lunch at Double D’s in Garland, PA.
