Mable Kathryn Williamson

Kathy went to be with the lord on April 29, 2012.

Kathy was born to Alpha and Luther Hudson on September 30, 1936 in Marvell, Arkansas. She moved to Richland when she was 8 years old. She attended school at Lewis & Clark, Sacajawea, Carmichael, and graduated from Columbia High School in 1954.

She was married to Paul Davis in 1957. They had two children, Gary & Larry Davis. In 1965, she married James "Willie" Williamson. Kathy was a loving, caring, and sensitive mother, wife, and grandmother whose greatest joys were spending time with her husband, sons, and family. Kathy was a generous person that did everything she could for any family member needing her help.

Kathy and Jim loved spending time together boating, relaxing at their summer cabin in Twin Lakes, ID, traveling, and being with family. Kathy was an avid animal lover who couldn't pass an animal without wanting to offer it a morsel of food from her purse. Caring for all her dogs during her lifetime was one of her greatest joys. She believed that "Whatever you are today, your children will become tomorrow."

Kathy began her long and fulfilling career in 1954 at age seventeen. She worked with General Electric at the Hanford Nuclear Works Project as a secretary, then went on to work for Battelle Northwest 1965-1970; Westinghouse 1970-1994. She retired in 1994 after 41 years at Hanford.

Kathy was preceded in death by her sister Mary Hudson, parents Luther Hudson, Alpha W. Webb Hudson and step-father Ervin Webb.

She is survived by her husband Jim, sons Gary Karen Davis and Larry Davis, brothers Luther Esther Hudson, Kenneth Chris Webb and sister Gladys "Jackie" Perkins and grandchildren Marie and Amanda Davis, Jason and Alison Altman-Neiderhiser, Justin Maltos and Amosean Maltos, eight great-grandchildren, numerous nieces & nephews and her dogs Riley and Ozzie.

Kathy attended the Richland Assembly of God church as well as other places of faith during her lifetime.

A graveside service will be held at Sunset Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Richland on Friday, May 4th, at 2:00 pm, immediately followed by a reception at her home.

  • I worked with Kathy in the 300 area for several years. She was a pleasant person to be around as well as a lot of fun. She will be missed. My condolences to her husband and her family.

  • To the entire family, “Willie”, and Gary, and Larry. I am so sad to see that Kathy went to see Jesus. I know she loved the Lord, but I will miss seeing her smiling face each time I bumped into her at the grocery store, or around town. Larry, I feel like I know you best; as you played ball with Bobby; and oh, how Kathy and I loved those ballgames. I have known Kathy since she was 18 and I was 17, and we worked for General Electric. Kathy was a wonderful, loving human being, and we shall all miss her, but I guess the Lord, wanted a beautiful new rose for his beautiful boquet in Heaven, so He had to have Kathy. With all sincerity, I am with you in your terrible loss.

    Kathy will be missed, not only by her entire family, but missed by folk’s like me. Cling to the wonderful memories, you have of Kathy, your wife, your Mom, and your Grandma. Love, Evelyn Kennedy

  • Dear Willie, Gary and Larry and family,

    I am so sorry for this sudden loss of such a beautiful and caring person. Kathy will be missed alot by so many people. She could always make me laugh with some of her silly antics and sayings. Remember all the fun and loving times you had with her as she would like to be remembered that way:.
