Obituary for Kathryn A. Williams

February 22, 1970 - July 4, 2021
Avon Lake, Ohio | Age 51

Loving Mother, Daughter, Friend


Kathryn A. Williams, 51, of Avon Lake, Ohio, passed away peacefully Sunday, July 4, 2021 surrounded by her loving family in her home. She was born February 22, 1970 in Detroit, Michigan, the daughter of David S. Williams, Jr. and the late Karen N. Williams.

Kathryn was a strong leader and high achiever throughout her entire academic career. She attended high school at Detroit Country Day School in Beverly Hills, Michigan. She then attended University of Pennsylvania where she earned a BS in Political Science and a Masters in Government Administration and became a soror of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Kathryn then moved to Cleveland, Ohio to attend law school at Case Western Reserve University, graduating with honors.

An accomplished attorney, Kathryn worked for several law firms before starting her own practice. She argued cases in prestigious settings including the Ohio Supreme Court, Ohio Appellate Court and more.

Kathryn's legal acumen, however, was based more in her genuine caring for others than her outstanding educational credentials. She was known to travel extensively to help friends and their families. She volunteered regularly to help those less fortunate. Kathryn devoted her life to helping others overcome their toughest challenges.

Kathryn is survived by her two children, Karen Angelina Hernandez and Jose David Hernandez; her brothers, David S. Williams III and his wife Rosemary of Los Angeles, CA and Douglas Williams and his wife Amanda of San Mateo, CA; her father David S. Williams, Jr. and his wife Marsha Broussard of New Orleans, LA; and three beloved nieces and nephews.
