Obituary: Barbara D. Williams
Mrs. Williams
Mrs. Williams

"Her children rise up and call her blessed; and her husband boasts of and praises her, saying, many daughters have done virtuously, nobly, and well with strength of character that is steadfast in goodness, but you excel them all. Whose kind grace and gentle heart always placed the needs of others ahead of her own."

Barbara was born in Kingman, Ariz. on March 7, 1934. She "went upstairs" March 21, 2013. She was a refuge and was God's saving grace to not only those she called family, but to countless others whose lives she saved, shaped and blessed. She was one of God's true instruments on earth; a woman who selflessly fought to demonstrate God's love and kindness within her own family, community and country. She was and will always be remembered as a beloved wife, mother, sister and daughter, a patriot, mentor and friend - the most pure extension of God's love here on earth. She was beautiful; a woman of grace and peace, truly a lady of Proverbs, chapter 31.

She is survived by her husband, Jerry Williams; her children, JR (Debbie), Leah (Virgil), Shawn, Kim and Alan Depalmer; her grandchildren, Eric, Michael, Heather, Isaac, Bethany, Kassidy, Chelsea, Diana, Lisa, Jonathan; and her great grandchildren, Ethan, Brynlee, Jeremiah, Andrew, Barrett, Nolan, Simeon, Layla, Layne and Luke; her brothers-in-law and their wives,

Roy (Carol) and Kenny (Catherine).

She will be eternally loved, and never forgotten.

A memorial service will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at Miller Valley Baptist Church.

If you would like to send a gift, please donate to Prescott Charities in lieu of sending flowers, etc. Please send donations to Dan Rusing, 2130 East Valley View Road, Prescott, AZ 86303 or bring them to the service. Thank you for your kind support.
