Evangeist Frances Williams
Along her later life's journey, Frances' light shined bright and caught the attention of a young man by the name of Curtis Williams. Curtis traveled five years to Hallandale, Florida; until February 27, 1971, when he moved Frances to Valdosta- as the love of his life and wife. The Lord blessed this union with a marriage of forty-eight wonderful years and their only child, Jeffrey.
Upon moving to Georgia, Evangelist Williams joined Tridestone Mount Zion Holy Union Church of God and served faithfully until her declining health. Frances was a member of this organization for over fifty-six years- serving as a member, evangelist, and youth department worker. Frances was a warm and caring person. She was known as an excellent cook with a willingness to feed the people of God. Also, she was employed with Valdosta State University and retired after twenty-eight and a half years of service.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her brothers, Dan and Edward Peterson and grandparents; mother-in-law, father-in-law, brothers- in-law, William Doston, Arthur Williams Jr, Arthur Tyson, and Leverette Frederick.
