FORD - Marilee (Snook) Williams, 79, died Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at Wesley Medical Center, Wichita Marilee was a main stay at our Ford, Kansas facility.
Marilee joined the Ford/Kingsdown Cooperative (known now as Pride Ag Resources) on May 12, 1970 as the bookkeeper, where she remained working until her death on Tuesday, January 10, 2017.
Throughout the years Marilee saw many changes, the ups and downs of the cooperative system and agriculture. While many employees came and went, Marilee was the main stay of the facility. Producers and employees alike could depend on Marilee to help out. Many mornings you could find Marilee having a good conversation and coffee with the customers. She will be sorely missed by all of us that worked with her and had the opportunity to spend time with her either over a cup of coffee or over the sales counter.
Marilee is survived by her three sons Darrel Allen (Stacie), Michael (Cheri) and Jeff (Martha Schwein). A sister, Shirley Riegel, a brother Ken Snook (Barbara), 10 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this time.
