Miss Kim­berly Leigh “Kim” Wil­liams, age 52 of Rock­mart passed away Tues­day morn­ing, Dec. 4, 2018.

She was born March 6, 1966 in Way­cross, daugh­ter of Linda Pinkard Wil­liams and the late Hugh Don Wil­liams.

Sur­vivors in­cluded her mother, Linda Pinkard Wil­liams; sis­ter and brother-in­law, Kristy and Greg Gober; brother and sis­ter-in-law, David and DeAnna Wil­liams; three nieces, Olivia Gober, Sarah Wil­liams and Emma Wil­liams; and two neph­ews, Ethan Gober and Isaac Gober all of Rock­mart.

Ms. Kim Wil­liams was a very spe­cial per­son and was loved by ev­ery­one who knew her.

She was a mem­ber of the Victory Bap­tist Church of Rock­mart where she had nu­mer­ous friends. The ladies of the church held an ex­tra spe­cial place in her heart and fre­quently show­ered her with gifts and hugs which Kim wel­comed each and ev­ery time she saw them.

Ms. Wil­liams served as a vol­un­teer at First Bap­tist Church of Rock­mart nurs­ery school for many years where Mrs. Bob­bie Lump­kin served as di­rec­tor. Ms. Wil­liams loved the chil­dren (and Miss Bob­bie) and looked for­ward to be­ing with them ev­ery day.

Fam­ily meant ev­ery­thing to Ms. Wil­liams. Her mother, brother and sis­ter were con­tin­ual sources of sup­port and care for her. She loved her sis­ter-in-law, brother-in-law, three nieces and two neph­ews dearly and en­joyed at­tend­ing birth­day par­ties and fam­ily gath­er­ings with aunts, un­cles and nu­mer­ous cousins.

En­joy­ing the sim­ple things in life is what Ms. Wil­liams did best. Eat­ing at El Nopal and Bar L, get­ting man­i­cures, putting to­gether puz­zles, writ­ing and mak­ing lists and watch­ing TV were some of her fa­vorite ac­tiv­i­ties – es­pe­cially if Chip and Joanna Gaines or Steve Har­vey were on TV.

In her own way, Kim Wil­liams cap­tured the hearts of all who knew her with her in­fec­tious smile, deep hugs and joy­ful laugh­ter. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
