Jacqueline Evelyn Williams, a retired Garrett County mathematics teacher and librarian, died of a heart attack July 28 at St. Joseph Medical Center. She was 66.

A Glen Arm resident, she had lived in Grantsville in Garrett County.

Born in Baltimore and raised in Northwood, she was a 1960 Eastern High School graduate. She earned a bachelor's degree at what was then Frostburg State Teachers College.

Miss Williams was a math teacher and high school librarian for 25 years in Garrett County before retiring in 1989.

"She was devoted to housekeeping and especially appreciated the beauty of her Garrett County mountaintop surroundings," said her brother, Nolan S. Williams of Greensboro, N.C. "At home, a well-prepared meal, soothing music and good reading were her favorite companions."

She also enjoyed attending the New York City Ballet and the Metropolitan Opera, and visiting Chesapeake Bay and Eastern Shore locales.

She wrote numerous letters to family and friends.

Services will be held at 1 p.m. today at Parkwood Cemetery, 3310 Taylor Ave.

Also surviving is a nephew, Patrick Williams of Winston-Salem, N.C.
