Obituary 

Louise Munn Williams of Trenton, New Jersey, departed this life on Sunday, April 17, 2022 at the age of 75. She was born in Mercer County, New Jersey, on February 25, 1947, the only child to the union of Clinton and Ella Sanders. She attended Our Lady of Divine Shepard Grammar School and St. Mary’s Cathedral High School.  Respectively, graduating as OLDS’ Valedictorian and the Salutatorian of her St. Mary’s graduating class.  She continued her education attending Mercer County Community College.  Louise was a life-long resident of Trenton, her dedication, pride and work ethic advanced her career pursuits.  In May 2003 she retired from The Judiciary of New Jersey after 37 years in State Government.   Her love for people led to her second career as a friendly mixologist where she graciously served patrons in Trenton, Ewing and surrounding areas.   

The Order of Eastern Star was woven into her life as she began her dedication to charity, truth and loving kindness when she joined and served with the Youth Department from ages 6 to 12.  As a devoted member of the Fraternal Order of Eastern Stars her recommitment to service in 1973 continued for many decades, as she moved up in ranks and eventually held the title of Worthy Matron. Louise was dynamic in her leadership and commitment to the organization, her proudest moment was serving as Worthy Matron to two chapters simultaneously.  She was extremely humbled by these honors, and the many recognitions and degrees awarded for her years of active service.   

Louise, affectionately known as, “Queen Weezie” was a loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother and loyal friend to many.  Her spirited demeanor, compassion and empathetic nature complemented her innate ability to avail herself for an ear to listen and a shoulder to lean on. Her love for shopping was paralleled by her fabulous sense of style.  Louise loved traveling, enjoying concerts with her late husband, and hosting family and friends, but never needed a special day or reason to prepare her famous turkey salad or deviled eggs.   

Louise was a person of many facets, whether she was serving her community by feeding those less fortunate or organizing a clothing drive, she was a resource for those in need. As Worthy Matron Louise loved hosting cabarets, where her great fashion sense was always on display as she changed from one fabulous outfit to the next through-out the night.  She was wise, witty and charming, with a spark that unapologetically allowed her to share what was on her mind.  Louise was admired, respected and love by all who knew her and in return, Louise LOVED – she loved her family, friends and many others unconditionally.  

Louise was preceded in death by her parents Ella and Clinton Sanders, her husband and “love of her life” Jimmie Williams, her son, Douglass Stacey Munn, granddaughter Amber K. Branch, son-in-law Leo H. Drayton and many beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins. 

She is survived by her children, Rhonda Deneen Drayton, Derrick (Ricky) F. Sanders, David C. Munn (Shannon), Davina N. Brittingham, step-children Germond Robinson (Mary) and Danielle Munn Bradley, grandchildren, Aishia, Iynana, Leo, Lamar, David, Jelani, Shakeira, Ziya, James, Joshua, Janielle, Jani, and host of great-grandchildren, her nearest and dearest sister friend for 68 years, Willow McDaniel Davis (Frank), co-parent David Calvin Munn, Jr. (Margaret) and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, close friends, fraternal sisters and a community that loved her. 

Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still missed and very dear.
