Angela was born in Detroit to Elena and Christoforos Vlisides. Soon the family moved to Ann Arbor where she and her brothers, Eleas and George, enjoyed their childhood. As a baby someone commented that she was a cute as a doll and from that time on was known as Dolly.
She earned a Master's degree from the University of Cincinnati to become a Nurse Anesthetist. Then Dolly met and married a young US Air Force Lieutenant, William Williamson. They began a family and a whirlwind tour of the US and the world.
Dolly loved being a Nurse Anesthetist and never complained about her early morning starts. She used her compassion and pragmatic nature to take care of patients. She always worked and always took care of everyone – husband, kids, cats, dogs and even a snake. Dolly loved to travel with Bill and together they visited every continent except Antarctica. She loved music and dance and was always tapping her toes and singing. Dolly was independent, strong and had a joy for life which brought her many friends.
She is preceded in death by her Parents, her brother George and her husband of 54 years William. She will be buried at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery with William.
She is survived by her brother Eleas, her children; Rebecca Williamson, Catherine and Gary Thomas, Karen and Rick Armontrout, Connie and Bryan Montgomery; and grandchildren; Lisa and Korey Gaines, Rebecca Thomas, Austin Thomas, Marshall Montgomery and Meryl Montgomery. We will miss her each and every day but know we are blessed that such a wonderful woman loved us.
Interment of ashes will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, July 25, 2013 at Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio, Texas.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Patriot Paws or Aggie Guide Dogs.
