Ailene graduated as salutatorian of the class of 1952 from Friendship Central School. She went on to receive an associate degree from Alfred State College and worked for several years as a lab technician at Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester before moving to Colorado.
She enjoyed reading, sewing, listening to classical music, playing with her cat April, skiing, attending church services and singing along with the hymns, and returning home to share in family gatherings and important events.
Surviving are her siblings: L. Herbert (Karen) Williams of Fillmore; Martha Williams of Centerville, Ohio; Walter (Dottie) Williams of Clearwater, Florida, and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews.
