Catrice LaChelle Williams affectionately called “Scooby” “ was born on Saturday, January 17, 1987 in Boston, Massachusetts to Wendy and Anton Branch. Scooby was a courageous fighter, having fought the good fight, she finished the race, and she kept the faith, but after two years of fighting, she lost the ultimate battle and on Wednesday, June 17, 2020 Scooby peacefully entered eternal rest after suffering another stroke – the battle fought and the victory won.
Catrice attended Boston Public Schools, graduated from West Roxbury High School in 2005 and attended Byman’s for Medical Assistant graduating in 2007. Her last place of employment was Harvard College as a PCA.
Catrice loved doing her friends’ hair but didn’t comb her own unless it was a special occasion. She was full of live, had a beautiful smile, a great sense of humor and was the “life of the party”. She loved being on Facebook and “Tik Tok” with her cousin Jaz. Once you meet her, you never forgot her.
Scooby was an outstanding person with a heart of pure gold. She loved to “TurnUp” as she would say. She loved and enjoyed all types of music and good food. She loved her friends, spending time with them and doing everything she could for them. She loved her morning coffee, daily calls to her Mom to see what she
wanted her to cook for her.
Scooby cherished her Aunty Darlene because when her Mom said “NO” she knew her Aunty Darlene was gonna say ”Yes” and she had a special bond with her Dad, “Tone” and never heard him say the word “NO” to her. She was an only child and often would tell people, “I’m the baby” and “I’m number 1”.
