Frances Williams, 48, had worked as a secretary with Housing and Urban Development for eight years. “She was an excellent mom and grandmother,” said her daughter, Dawn Mahan. She said her mother was an active member at her church, Crossroads Cathedral. Mahan said that her mother’s favorite pastimes included playing with her three grandchildren and eating sweets, especially cake. “I love her and will always miss her,” Mahan added. “We will reunite one day.” Williams is survived by a brother, two children and three grandchildren. Her mother is Mozelle Bibb.
