Brandice Leigh Williams was born in Floresville, Texas on November 15th, 1981.
As a child, she enjoyed many a summer with family – swimming, riding go karts with her
brother, and living the country life. She was an incredibly talented and badass softball
player from the time she was very young. Highschool weekends were often spent at the
ball fields, competing in various tournaments and being around her closest friends.
Following in her brother, Bobby Williams, footsteps, Brandice was also a fantastic
artist. She especially loved to draw and paint flowers and portraits. However, one of her
most recent passions was fishing for hours and hours on end. Luck or no luck, she
never gave up!
The one thing she loved more than anything, and never gave up on, were her
kids, her babies, Clayton, Cathleen, Colby, and Gracie, whom she loved relentlessly,
and would defend fiercely. During their younger years her kids could be found attached
at the hip, doing everything under the sun as a loving family. A momma bear has
nothing on her! Mornings with her kids not only involved sweet snuggles and always a
“good morning love,” But they usually also involved a hectic race to get to the last piece
of bacon. A race in which she was winning most of the time. Her victory would be
followed up with her sticking her tongue out to whoever she beat and proclaiming “and it
was good too!“
Although road trips to Moms and Pops were a favorite of hers, just being together
on the back porch listening to music and telling stories created the most fond memories.
Brandice Williams was unlike any other and as unique as they come. She was strong,
independent, caring, compassionate, creative, loving, hysterically funny, and among
other things, didn’t take shit from anyone. She protected the ones she loved, and loved
to keep tabs on her little “sista.” She always made sure to remind her that throughout
life’s most difficult struggles, she was always proud of her and that Riley will always be
her “one and only sista, and nothing will ever come between that.”
Her cackle of a laugh is one that can not be mistaken and will DEFINITELY be
missed. As will the many pool days, the late nights, the singing along to Kid Rock or
Godsmack, her infectious smile, her ability to make anyone in the room laugh, and
watching the way Brandice fearlessly and unapologetically moved through life. Brandice
fulfilled her purpose here on earth by living a life full of love. She came here to do what
she was supposed to do – to make a huge loving imprint in everyone’s life. And for this
reason we are here to celebrate her life. While she will be missed dearly by many, she
has left behind a treasure trove of memories that we are lucky and honored to have and
to hold close to our hearts forever. Keeping the spirit of Brandice alive forever.
She is survived by her children Clayton, Cathleen, Colby and Gracie; mother Ann Bartlett; siblings Bobby Williams and Riley Bartlett; grandparents Butch and Dale Freasier; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family.
