Anna Marie Erickson, later just known as Marie, was born Jan. 22, 1923, in Warren Township of Story County, Iowa. She attended the country school near McCallsburg until about 1936 reaching the eighth grade. In 1952 she was united in marriage to Glenn Austin Williams, and to this union two children were born, David and Linda. Glenn and Marie were later divorced. During most of her life she was a homemaker; however, she did work for a short time at Ed’s Super Value. She was an avid reader, and was always giving and loving. Marie exemplified her deep faith in God through her interactions with her family and friends. Her family’s fondest memory of her is that she was overly generous, and was always more than happy to give anything to anyone in need. They also enjoyed her keen wit and great sense of humor.
