Lois Marian Willams, 93, Caldwell: March 14, 1927 – June 23, 2020

Marian Williams

Lois Marian Williams was born on March 14, 1927, in Anthony, Kansas to Alfred and Louise Sinclair Prophet.  She was the first grandchild in the Sinclair family, and she was nicknamed “Tiny” by her beloved grandparents.  Later a brother, Carl, and sister, Reba joined the family.

Marian was destined to live an adventurous life, as traveling was to feature prominently in her life.  The Prophets moved frequently, due to her father’s job, and although they lived in many places Caldwell, KS  was always the hometown they returned to.

As a young girl, Marian was a tomboy and earned the nickname “Butch” from admiring peers for her softball playing abilities.  In fact, her son Terry recalled that when he asked her to give him some pointers on playing the game, she put him through such rigorous training that he was discouraged that he would never play as well as his mother.
