OBITUARY

Nancy Ann Kincade Williams

August 16, 1941April 26, 2020

In these unprecedented times of our nation, the Kenneth Williams family is unable to have a traditional funeral for Nancy Ann. A private graveside service with “less than 10” members of her immediate family will take place on Wednesday April 29. Later, when permissible, the family will host a joyful celebration of her wonderful life for all friends and family.

Nancy Ann Kincade Williams, 78, of Corinth, passed away at her home on April 26, 2020, after an 11-year battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis. Born in 1941, she was the only daughter of Sally and Robert Kincade and grew up in the Mississippi Delta with her brother, Pat Kincade. She graduated in 1959 from Clarksdale High School where she was elected both Homecoming Queen and Miss CHS. She spent her freshman year at Mississippi University for Women, then transferred to the University of Mississippi, the alma mater of both of her parents and where her father was awarded the coveted Norris Trophy as the best male athlete.

On the first day of orientation at Ole Miss, she met the love of her life, Kenneth Weaver Williams from Corinth. She was a member of Delta Delta Delta Sorority and was crowned Sweetheart of Sigma Chi in 1962.

She and Kenneth married in February of 1963. With a teaching degree in hand, she taught school until her ultimate teaching job began with her children. Mrs. Williams was a loving and dedicated mother to her four children, and later was a loving influence on her 15 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.

Mrs. Williams was a member of Fin de Siecle Club, Garden Club, and Junior Auxiliary. She served as home room mother for many years, scout leader, and swim team coach. As a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ, she taught Bible Study at her church, First United Methodist Church, as well as in the community. She volunteered as a youth leader at FUMC and her influence spread far and wide, one individual at a time. Her last years of life were spent battling a difficult illness, yet she found her purpose in praying for others.

Survivors include her husband of 57 years, Kenneth Weaver Williams; four children, Nan Williams Green (Stuart) of Corinth and Vicksburg, Sara Williams Berry (Mont) of Tupelo; Ken Williams (Edi) of Corinth; and Martin Williams (Adriene) of Jackson, Tenn.; and her brother, Pat Kincade (Cheryl) of Ventura, Calif.; 15 grandchildren, who she adored, Wesley Green Josey (Jonathan) of Jackson, Meg Green Craft (Ryan) of Vicksburg, Sean Scruggs (Richie) of Vicksburg, Katie Berry Thompson (Owen) of Crestview, Fla., Ellie Berry Carter (Drew) of Jackson, Joseph Berry of Jackson, Troy Berry (Rorie) of Oxford, Joshua Berry, Sally Berry and Charlie Berry, all of Tupelo, Elizabeth Williams of Nashville, Tenn., Rebekah Williams, Emma Williams, Rachel Williams, all of Corinth, and Avon Williams, of Jackson, Tenn.; and her great grandchildren, Seth Josey, Haddon Josey, Dagny Scruggs, Byron Scruggs and Riley Ann Craft; and beloved nieces, nephews and a multitude of friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Sara Stevens Kincade (Sally) and Robert Patton Kincade.

ADD A MEMORY
Debbie and John Aikin

The world has lost a beautiful (in all ways) and mighty servant of Jesus but, heaven has gained an eternal and radiant saint! I rejoice knowing that Nancy Ann will hear the most precious words of Jesus, "well done my faithful daughter!" The world and those of us she touched are greatly more blessed because of her. She leaves such a full and beautiful legacy of Jesus' love and that smile....
Her laughter always warmed my heart and tickled my spirit with such infectious joy. Sometimes, we would start giggling about something until we would just keel over, like two little girls sharing a funny secret! We have the memories of our wonderful times together to assuage our grief for now. Looking forward to seeing her and worshiping with her in the choir around Jesus' heavenly throne. Till then, sweet friend, well done.

I did not know Miss Nancy Ann, but she knew my daughter Alyssa. She was incredibly sweet to my daughter. remembering her with cards or little gifts. Alyssa loved her very much and spoke very highly of her. My condolences for the loss of this very special lady.

She was the ultimate host. I had the pleasure of spending a couple of pre-Christmas’s with her to get her beautiful home ready for the holidays. She was such a delightful and loving lady. We laughed, she told me stories and I was honored to be in her presence. Heaven has gained special Angel.

I knew NaN years ago as we both were members at “The Lighthouse” I met Mrs. Williams later as I was one of her caregivers. She was a really nice and beautiful lady. She will truly be missed. My prayers goes out to Mr. Kenneth and the rest of the families knowing God is with you all.

Nancy Ann was the mother of dear friends of mine growing up (Nan and Sarah). Then as I grew to adulthood she became a great encouragement as a sister in Christ. She modeled for me what it looked like to be godly woman, wife, mom at a stage of life out ahead of the stage I was currently in. I have the warmest place of gratitude in my heart for God giving her to the world and to my life. God bless all you Williams types. The Pierces miss all of you. So grateful for your whole family and every generation of it. Love in Him, Ben Pierce

My prayers are with all of Nancy’s family and loved ones. She was a shining example of a Christian to all who knew her. She will be missed by all, but no one will miss her more than the love of her life, Kenneth. I pray that God gives her family the strength and courage they will need to face their world with only their memories of Nancy and the faith to know that God is with them every minute. Nancy is in a much better place now and suffering no more. God Bless you all. Mary Galyean Williamson Olds
