Oct. 16, 1938–Nov. 20, 2022

Nancy Mae (Roswadovski) Williams was born in Sheridan, Wyo., on Oct. 16, 1938. She entered Heaven’s gates on Nov. 20, 2022. 

Nancy was the daughter to Mildred (Mates) and Stanley Roswadovski. She was the youngest of five children. In June 1955, she married the love of her life, Cecil Richard Williams, and to this union they had four children, Rick, Ken, Cindy, and Marcie. In 1977, the couple moved from Ranchester, Wyo., to Newcastle, Wyo., where they called home.

A loving mother and homemaker, Nancy was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family, most especially over the holidays. For many years leading up to her passing there was never a day that went by when one of her children or grandchildren would stop by and she would insist on making them something to eat. In her younger years, Nancy loved to fish and hunt with her family. You could find Nancy sitting in her chair listening to her polka tunes when you would show up to visit. Nancy knew no stranger and always loved a good visit either on the phone or stopping in the isle of the grocery store. 

Nancy is survived by her children, Rick (Susan), Ken (Marcia), Marcie (Travis) of Newcastle, and Cindy (Larry) of Buffalo, Wyo.; and her eight grandchildren, Amanda, Jared, Barbra, Trisha, Mckenley, Marti, Payton, and Madison. She is also survived by her special great-grandbabies, Kylie, Braden, Jaxton, Wyatt, Lacey, Emberley, Kenzyngtyn and one on the way; and numerous nieces and nephews.  

Preceding her in death is her loving husband of 51 years, Cecil; her parents, Mildred and Stanley; siblings, Josephine (Paul) Pawlus, Mary (George) Legerski, Albena (Chris) Schwabauer, and William (Darlene) Roswadovski; and her in-laws, Lillie, and Noah Williams.

Services will be held at First United Methodist Church in Newcastle with Pastor Ron Sample officiating, Friday, Nov. 25. Visitation will be at 10 a.m. with services to follow at 11.
