POTSDAM – Azlynne J. Williams, 26, of 345 Stockholm-Knapps Station Road, courageously lost her battle on Saturday evening, May 2, 2020 at her home with the love and support of her family at her side.

Azzy was born September 22, 1993 in Ogdensburg, the twin daughter of Scott E. and Jeannie M. (Rabideau) Williams. She attended Norwood-Norfolk Central Schools, where she graduated in 2012 and later took courses at Jefferson Community College.

Her love for shopping showed that she had a keen eye for all the newest and trendiest items on the market and would always be searching for something new. Azzy enjoyed art, whether it was coloring or painting. In addition, she enjoyed watching scary movies, cooking, and had a great love for a good cup of coffee. She will be fondly remembered for her extreme will to fight and determination to beat the extreme effects of her illnesses.

Azzy is survived by her loving parents, Scott and Jeannie; her twin brother, Zach and his companion, Camila Ruiz; her older brother, Jesse and his companion, Bethany Ackerman, all of Delaware; her grandparents, Erma Rabideau and Bob and Gloria Williams, all of Potsdam; and her beloved dog, Chloe.

Also surviving are her aunts and uncles, Robyn Peets and companion, Kevin Grant of Potsdam; Lena and Larry Montuori of Maryland; Carl “Mac” and Marie Reed of Maryland; Celeste and Dale Planty of Norwood; Patsy and Pat McNulty of Raymondville; Joanne Rabideau of North Carolina; Tena Allen of Florida; Denise and Sonnie Mellott of Florida; Damon and Barb Reed of Florida; and Jackie Jennings of Florida; and numerous cousins and friends.

Azzy was predeceased by her grandfather, Harold “Pete” Rabideau on November 6, 2013; her uncles, Danny Reed, Bruce Allen, and David Jennings; and her cousin, Layla Shenski.

Due to the current health restrictions, the family will be offering a time for friends to greet them at “drive up” visitation at their home on Saturday from 7-9:00 PM. A formal celebration of her life will be held at a date and time to be announced once the restrictions have been eased.

In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honor Azzy, please consider donations to the Ronald McDonald House, 405 East 73rd Street, New York, NY 10021, as they provided a home and support for her and her family for the past several months.

Arrangements are with the Donaldson-Seymour Funeral Home, Potsdam. Friends and family are encouraged to share memories, condolences, and photos with the family on Azzy’s Tribute Wall at You may also sign a virtual register book at: Registry for Azlynne Williams

I've know Azlynne and the Williams family for a very long time. My story Im sure is similar to yours. They took me in. I was and am welcome any time. I'm sure you all feel the same way. Most of your good childhood memories where there in that beautiful house with Jeannie and Scott taking in every neighborhood kid troubled or not feeding us, housing us, teaching us good from bad. Azlynne pouring her heart into everything she did especially cooking, laughing and jokeing while jesse and Zach tease her.. what could you possibly be making now sis there's so much food! Two hours later there is a five course meal for football Sundays. Can't fit it all in the counter. We would lock ourselves in her room for hours listening to music talking and dreaming about adulthood and of course cute boys.
Playing pool and cards in the basement Jesse always finding a way to win.
Riding four-wheelers in the back, trying to out run Zach in the middle of the night playing ghost in the grave yard under the moon. Telling ghost storys about the spirits that linger on the land.
Everytime you go back Scott has crafted some beautiful new part of the house into an artistic master piece... Even if your the reason why the carpet got ruined forcing him to replace it the first time. You see Jeannie and Scott finally had a night out which they didn't get to often and Azzy and I stayed alone in the house.... Maybe Zach was playing video games in the back room but we were alone enough to dump an entire bottle of shampoo cleaner in the shampooer and " wash" the entire carpet we thought we were doing good! Helping out. It turns out the only help we did was forcing him to replace that rock hard carpet after it never dried soft again.
You see when you loose someone who has changed the fabric of your being. Someone who you know for a fact you would not be who you are today if it wasn't for them. Your heart shatters. Azlynne is that person to so many people she didn't even know the magnitude of it. But I dont think any of us do. I know most of you are feeling the same as me right now. like your broken into a million pieces, and you want to cling. To anything good, and run. you stumble around as if to pick them up, but your numb, for a while you just give up,
Why shouldn't you? It simply isn't possible to ever be whole again and you know this.
With a great loss You become different,
Altered its unavoidable
And you will seek them, want to visit them, and need to know if they are happy. But there is a way to do that from this realm.
The secret.
Is that no one is forever lost if you know how to pick up and mend your shattered soul... you must find the strength to sow the best parts of her to you.with this you create a fate line so you and Az are forever intertwined. Carefully choosing Each shattered piece to pick up and what to let go of carefully taking enough of her into you so you don't loose yourself but you keep her alive through you. I look first to the parts that she would want to be remembered by.

To wake up each day and get out of bed we need Azlynne's warrior strength "so dig deep her strength came from you Scott and Jeanie it came from the never ending amount of love that you both poured into her" But before we knew her for her strength we knew her for her fierce love for "the truth" for doing what's right even in the face of temptation and she would tell you to your face when you stear off that path. For her love to help people of all sorts while setting them straight on there path is and will always be my favorite boart of her. Those are just some of the many peices of azlynne I have picked up so far that gave me the strength to be in front of you all today. And that I will keep with me to guide me to be a better version of myself because of knowing her.

Choose The parts that embraced you the most, the parts you know you will need In order to survive it all. Very carefully choose the bad and the good. The bad is what shapes the good, it's what makes us who we are because it's what we learned from to define what good is and the person we want to be. So we need to take those bad memories that we had and find good through them because if we don't the bad becomes an uncontrollable poison instead of a beautiful flowering Ivy. With each stitch you sow her peices to yours peices, you keep alive a thread for her to tether her soul to yours. A fate line they can visit you through. With each peice you pick up the stronger the bond so Start with the good ones so together you can tackle the bad ones. That is the importance of picking up your pieces. because if you never learn how to do it she can't find you so stay strong. The piece you pick up will never be the same but now it is better, it is altered and stronger because now you left your old broken self on the ground and sowed a piece of her to you. And with it the responsibility to honor it justly so azlynne Jean Williams can live on through you.

So let's name our pieces and share them.

On behalf of the Natural Light Studio family of companies, I, along with my wife, Kelly Ann Connolly, wanted to express our deepest condolences to Azzy's loved ones. Azzy's work with the Clan Aikins Association, as well as her collaborations with Jerry and Edie, show her limitless potential. I would humbly like to dedicate a chapter of my upcoming book, 'Global Entertainment in the 21st Century,' co-authored with James Marx, to the memory of Azlynne. May she rest in the embrace of the Lord along with our beloved PGB. Yours in grief, Phillip Caplan, Cheyanne, WY

I remember when you and Zach were born. I remember you running around while your mom tried to cut my hair when you were a toddler. I remember you growing into a sweet, beautiful, strong and smart young lady. Your smile would light up any room! Fly high Azzy!
