Alosia always had an open door policy for everyone, especially for those who wanted to taste her cooking – she was a fabulous cook and took great joy in feeding her family and friends. She was a free spirit who was known for her genuine kindness, love for her Lord, and she would have given the shirt off her back to help anyone who was in need. Alosia was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, mother-in-law, and truly loved Howard, who was her soul mate and companion for 45 years.
Survivors include her lifelong companion, Howard Morris; three sons, Ronald Williams, Taylor Williams (Devin), and Johnny Williams, all of Breaux Bridge; five daughters, Allison Davis (Keith)and Melissa Soloman of Breaux Bridge, Rita Williams, of Augusta, Ga., and Dedra Williams and Lailor Williams, both of Breaux Bridge; four brothers, Jessie Williams of Beaumont, Texas, and Johnny Williams, Alton Williams and Gerald Williams, all of Breaux Bridge; four sisters, Shirley Williams, Agnes Pete, Pauline Lambert and Paula Williams, all of Breaux Bridge; 23 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Alton and Mardes Joseph Williams.
The family requests that visiting hours be observed at the funeral home from 7 a.m. until 10 a.m. on Thursday.
A rosary will be recited at 8 a.m.
Pallbearers will be Taylor Williams, Johnny Williams, Ronald Williams, Keith Davis, John Williams and Kordell Williams.
