Rebecca Ann (Blair) Williams of Manteca, CA passed away on February 3rd, 2024.  Rebecca or as she preferred to be called “Becki” was born in Kansas on October 28, 1946.  Becki was the oldest of four children born to Lawrence and Marjorie (Markey) Blair.    She grew up in Kansas. Always an excellent student, she attended Long Beach State University until her daughter, Melanie Elizabeth, was born in July, 1971. Becki then relocated to Dallas, TX where she began classes to fulfill her dream of becoming a Periodontist where she also developed her lifelong devotion to the Dallas Cowboys. Becki was in school and work full-time as the head of the dental clinic at the Scottish Rite Hospital in Dallas all while being a mom to Melanie. While at the hospital, she encountered the love of her life, S. Randall Williams, who was working toward his M.D. They were married in Houston on March 17, 1979 after that their family moved to Manteca, CA to open up the first orthopedic practice in the city. Becki and Randy welcomed Amanda Dawn to their family, born in December, 1979. Becki played multiple roles in the flourishing medical practice, eventually becoming Randy's physician assistant and proving to be a skilled and invaluable asset.

   They were prominent members of the community and settled into their beautiful home in Manteca. Despite losing Randy in a tragic event while on vacation in 1996, Becki's strength and positively helped her push through difficult times ahead, ultimately overcoming various medical problems and impressing her doctors and loved ones with her recovery to good health. Having her grandsons London Oliver and Trevi Maxwell, as well as her daughters and beloved dogs, brought immense joy to Becki's life. She left this world peacefully and still smiling. 

   Becki is survived by Melanie Williams-Allegra (GianLuca), grandsons Oliver and Max of Brooklyn, NY; Amanda Dennis of Manteca, CA; sister Pamela Thompson (Nelson); brother Stephen Blair (Susan Gardner); brother-in-law Karl Myers; many cousins and nieces and nephews.

   Preceded in death by her husband Randy, her parents and her sister, Mary Myers.  In lieu of flowers, please donate to the soon to be renamed  S. Randall Williams and Rebecca Williams Scholarship Fund. Becki's wish was for the fund to thrive and continue to grow. Dennis RVT

   We will be having a celebration of life for friends and family on April 25th, at Del Webb Clubhouse at 10:30 a.m.
