Barbara Dawn (Kelly) Williams, born on February 11, 1933 in Mesa, Arizona, to Aurelia (Willis) Kelly and Clyde Theodore Kelly, passed away at age 85 on April 5, 2018 in Chandler, Arizona.

She graduated from Mesa High School in 1950 where she became one of the elite lasso twirling Mesa High School Rabbettes.” She was a Committee secretary and secretary for the Speaker of the House at the Arizona Legislature until retiring in 1995. Barbara was married to Richard B. Williams. Barbara is survived by her sons, Richard Ted Williams, Clifford Allen Williams, Phillip Carey Williams, and Jeffrey Loren Williams; daughter, Jennifer (Williams) Park; brother, Robert Willis Kelly; sister, Kathleen Kelly Steverson. Barbara had a passion for reading and church service. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Our dear mother, grandmother, and great grandma Williams fiercely loved us. Her remarkable devotion was legendary. Family was her life blood; her husband Dick was her true love. She has waited not so patiently to return to him. We are sure angels blushed at their heavenly reunion.

  • My deep condolences to the Williams family,
    I was really touched by the loss of your loved one. When a precious loved one falls asleep in death, it brings to mind God’s precious son Jesus. It is comforting to note how he viewed death. I would like to share it with you from the gift that the Most High God has given to each & everyone of us. Yes, His written word the Bible. In the Book of John chapter 11 verses 11-14 please, notice that Jesus viewed death as one Sleeping. He viewed death in such a comforting way. And, the Most High God promises that we can have the opportunity to see our loved ones again in perfect health (Psalms 83:18, Acts 24:15, & Isaiah 33:24). He even says where: Psalms 37:11 and for how long Psalms 37:29). I really hope that these promises were as comforting to you as they were to us when our daughter died and also when my precious husband of 50 years fell asleep in death due to cancer. I truly understand the pain that comes from losing someone so precious to us.
    Written to you in deep sympathy,
