Suzanne Seibert Williams, of Montclair, passed away peacefully at Green Hill in West Orange on May 18. She was 85.

A daughter of the late Dorothy Crock Seibert and James Holderbaum Seibert, Sue was born in Somerset, Pa.,  and raised in New Jersey. She graduated from Somerville High School in 1952 and attended The College of New Jersey.

Sue was the wife of the late Richard L. Williams, whom she supported with love and dedication as his blossoming career took him across much of the United States. She never bristled when being told of yet another move, which meant leaving good friends behind.

Sue and Dick eventually settled in Montclair, where they spent the past 38 years and made many friends. Her summers were spent in Bay Head.

Sue was a member of the Montclair Golf Club and the Bay Head Yacht Club. She was a long-time member of the Garden Club of Montclair and a volunteer at the Montclair Art Museum.

She was the life of any gathering and could stay up chatting to the wee hours. She always asked questions, engaged in lively discussion, and was one to offer an opinion.

Sue adored her grandchildren, and they adored her: Dickie Redmond (Ilana), Scott Redmond (Katie), TJ Redmond, Richard Williams III, Drew Williams, Caroline Williams, Will Redmond, and Scott Williams.

Sue is also survived by her daughter, Jane Redmond (Rick) of Hobe Sound, Fla., and her son, Richard Williams Jr. (Jody) of Atlanta, Ga.; her sister, JoAnn Revie; and her brothers, Tom, John, and Dick Seibert.

In addition to her parents and husband, Sue was predeceased by her brother, James Seibert, and her grandson, Will Redmond.

A private burial in the family cemetery plot was to take place Tuesday, June 2, at the South Branch Reformed Church in Hillsborough Township. A celebration of Sue’s life will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be sent to the Garden Club of Montclair, Inc., 60 South Fullerton Ave., Montclair, NJ 07042, or Central Presbyterian Church Memorial Fund, 46 Park St., Montclair, NJ 07042. For online condolences and updates please visit
