It is with heavy hearts and a profound sense of loss that we announce the passing of Jacqueline Mae (Boyles) Williams, a loving wife and mother, devoted friend, cherished grandmother, and a remarkable woman who touched the lives of many.

She leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, and a life well-lived. Her great passion was supporting her children in all of their sports.

Jackie, born December 9,1935 to William and Arlene (Santee) Boyles, left this world on April 25, 2024, with her husband by her side, to join her son Kirk, who preceded her in death in 2014.

On August 7th, 1954, she was married to the love of her life, Stanley Williams, who survives her. Being together almost 70 years, they built their life around raising their children. Still surviving are their children Melissa Bartlow, Dr. Mark Williams and his wife Nicole, and Ty Williams and his wife Brenda, all of Bloomsburg.
