HAMILTON - Dorothy Elizabeth Williams (Kinkade) 79, of Hamilton passed away on April 16, 2011, at the Marcus Daly Hospice.
Dorothy was born July 17, 1931, to Grace and Dewey Kinkade in Hemet, Calif. She was raised in Hemet, graduating from San Jacinto High School in 1949. She married Glenn Williams in 1949. Together they raised three children, Don, Glenda and Cindy. Later in life they moved to Chico, Calif., where Dorothy worked with the Retail Clerks Grocery Union. Dorothy loved her family, and that was evidenced by her continued devotion to her own parents, her brothers and sisters, her children and grandchildren.

On Sunday mornings, Sunday evenings and Wednesday evenings you always knew that Dorothy was studying God's word, always in obedience to him.
She was preceded in death by her father Dewey; mother Grace; brother Tony; sister Marie; brother Kenny and grandson Scott. Survivors include her sister Doris Harvey in San Jacinto; her husband Glenn; son Don Williams, daughter Glenda Wiles, son-in-law Mike Wiles, all of Hamilton; daughter Cindy Williams of Chico and her grandchildren, Troy Wiles of Bend, Ore., Kelly Wiles of Great Falls and Whitney Wiles of Bend as well as great-grandchildren.
