Henrietta P. "Pat" Williams

PERU — Henrietta P. "Pat" Williams, 95, formerly of Apple Valley Drive, Peru, died Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2013 at the Clinton County Nursing Home in Plattsburgh.

She was born in Albany, August 18, 1918, the daughter of John G. and Henrietta (Herter) Peters.

Pat was a graduate of Albany High School, class of 1935. After graduation, she attended Mildred Elley, a private business school, and was a member of Theta Rho, which was the girls junior order of the I.O.O.F. She was later a member of one of the adult orders.

During World War II, Pat worked for the Federal Government and was first assigned to O.P.S. in Albany. After the company moved to Syracuse and before Major A.W. Merriam was transferred to Washington, D.C., he gave Pat a recommendation to Colonel William H. Boughton, who was Executive officer in charge of NYS Selective Service. Colonel Boughton hired Pat as his secretary. As work slowed, and the war was ending, Pat also worked for Colonel Francis Roddy, Operations Officer. After the war ended, and Major Merriam retired, Pat began working for him at A. Wayne Merriam, Inc., which was a wholesale dealer in General Electric appliances, located in Albany, NY. Pat worked with him until he passed away. She was then able to get an appointment in the office of Lt. Gov. of N.Y. where she worked until she retired. Pat married her husband, Nelson J. Williams, Sunday, Sept. 5, 1948 in St. Pauls English Lutheran Church, Rensselaer, NY. Pat retired from secretarial work in 1953, after the birth of their daughter, Joanne.

After Joanne started school, Pat volunteered for Visiting Nurses, American Red Cross, and Child's Hospital in Albany. She was a Girl Scout leader, a member of the Eastern Star, past president of St. Paul's Episcopal Women, past president of Ladies Guild, Peru Community Church, as well as an active member for several years in the Ladies Guild. Pat enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles and the activities of her grandsons. Pat was an avid bowler.
