Putnam County Honors Long Time Sheriff’s Dispatcher

3/20/14 – 8:35 A.M.

Putnam County law enforcement and emergency crews paid tribute to a colleague earlier this week. The Putnam County Sentinel reports funeral services were held Monday for Sue Williams. She was a well-liked dispatch supervisor for the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office for 28 years.

The services included a procession of fire trucks, ambulances, and sheriff’s cruisers. Two ladder trucks from the Ottawa and Perry Fire Departments set up in Columbus Grove as part of the salute.

Williams also served as a paramedic in the county for 33 years. Sheriff Mike Chandler told the newspaper, “Even when I was a deputy, Sue was more than a coworker, she was everybody’s friend.”

Williams was 52-years-old.
