Felicia Ann Williams, a Buffalo native who left the area to work with people who are HIV-positive, died Nov. 19, 2002, in her home in Washington, D.C., after a brief illness.
Williams, 52, was a graduate of Buffalo elementary schools, Kensington High School, Bryant & Stratton and the University at Buffalo.
She moved from Buffalo about six years ago, going to Tampa, Fla., and later to Washington to be closer to her brother, Stanford.
While in the capital, she worked as Transportation Director for the Walt Whitman Clinic. She was in charge of the van used for HIV testing and counseling and coordinated the van's visit to various colleges, businesses and correctional facilities.
Williams also was active in her church and enjoyed singing in the church choir.
Besides her brother, survivors include a son, Jerel of Buffalo; her mother, Jeanette of Buffalo; two other brothers, Stephen Jr. and Cyril, both of Buffalo; and one grandchild.
A funeral service will be held at 10:30 a.m. today in J.W. Loguen Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church, 210 Southampton St.
