Kathy Williams

July 9, 1946 — June 14, 2024

Kathy Williams, a devoted servant of her faith and community, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 14, 2024, at 77 years old in Columbia, Maryland. She leaves behind a legacy of unwavering faith, compassion, and dedication to those around her.

Kathy was born in Stoughton, MA, where she spent her formative years. She attended Cardinal Spellman High School before furthering her education at North Eastern University, earning an associate's degree in science, and later at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree.

In 1983, Kathy embarked on a career as a dental office manager in Randolph, MA, a role she held steadfastly for over three decades until her retirement. She found great fulfillment in her work, particularly in caring for patients and fostering a welcoming environment in the office.

Outside of her professional life, Kathy was deeply committed to her faith and church community. She was an active member of Crossroads Church of the Nazarene in Maryland, having previously attended the South Weymouth Church of the Nazarene in Massachusetts. Her faith was central to her life, bringing her immense peace and joy.

Kathy's interests were diverse and reflected her curious mind and generous spirit. She had a passion for memorizing Bible verses, and her proficiency in sign language allowed her to connect with others in meaningful ways. She was also fascinated by geography and British history, often exploring these subjects with enthusiasm.

Above all, Kathy will be remembered for her unwavering faith and her dedication to serving others. Her kindness and gentle spirit touched the lives of many, leaving an indelible mark on all who knew her.
