Mrs Williams died on Monday, February 8.

Mr Williams still remembers how his wife’s inspirational journey began.

“It started on the first day that the kids went to primary school,” he said. “She brought home three women who were upset and from there she formed a club.”

Mrs Williams was a tireless worker, raising money for many local charities and community groups in Rockingham.

In 2002, she started the Rockingham Sound Day View Club.

View stands for Voice Interests and Education of Women and was started by the Smith Family as a service to women.

The national organisation has more than 18,000 members.

The Rockingham chapter focused their fundraising efforts on the Smith Family’s child sponsorship program. Two students are sponsored by 22 members through The Smith Family’s Learning for Life Program.

Thirteen years later, the club has grown with more than 60 members sponsoring 11 students. Mrs Williams was also a member of the Red Hatters Society.
