Renate Allsman-Williams ( MARTINEZ, Ga.)

MARTINEZ, Ga. - Renate "Sue" Luise Allsman-Williams, 68, entered into rest May 27, 2010 after a courageous battle with Alzheimer's and Cancer. A native of Frankfurt, Germany born to Heinz and Anni Allsman on March 14, 1942, she attended Lutheran school with her twin sister, Christa Stark and brother, Deiter Allsman until graduating in 1958. Sue immediately went to work for luthansa Airlines, a job she truly loved. A brave move to The United states in 1961 eventually led her to Augusta, a place she was proud to call home. Always excited during Master's week and a deep appreciation for James Brown. Sue had a 25 year career in textiles but managed to make many long lasting friends and was always willing to extend her hand in kindness. She raised three daughters that adore her, Susi Whisnant, Nina Williams, Dionne "Ruggy" Maddocks and Bobby Whisnant, the son she always wanted. Sue loved music, gardening, needlepoint and her cat Spanky .but her real passions were for her grandchildren Zachary Williams, Cory Whisnant and Ryan Williams. We know she is finally at peace and so we say "Goodnight Irene". Family will receive friends at McNeill Funeral home Monday May 31,2010, 5pm-7pm. Memorial Services will be conducted Tuesday June at 2:00 pm at McNeil Funeral Home Rev. Dewain French officiating. Mcneill Funeral Home 109 Shaw St. Martinez, Ga. 706-364-9122
