Vicki Leigh Williams, 60, passed away peacefully at her home on Wednesday, November 14, 2018. A sweet and gentle spirit, she was born on February 8, 1958 in Amory to Richard “Dick” Franklin and Yvonne Crosby Williams. A 1976 graduate of Amory High School, she was also a 1980 graduate of Blue Mountain College. Early in her career, she taught history in Clarksdale then in 1983 she began working for North Mississippi Medical Center Billing Services retiring in 2017 as Chief Supervisor and she was also involved in the operation of Tupelo Service Finance. Though Vicki never married and not having children of her own, she was instrumental in helping raise Kelsie and Haley although she loved all of her nieces and nephews as her own. Her vibrant personality displayed her contagious smile, and with a love that was unconditional, she was a great encourager brightening the lives of many making them feel like family. Vicki was totally devoted to God and was blessed by God with many talents. She was a gifted keyboard player and played with the worship team for many years at Meadowood Baptist Church. With her happy spirit, she loved to sing and many would describe her as having the voice of an angel as her anthem was found in one of her favorite songs, “Can Others See Jesus in Me?” Vicki was a founding member of the singing group Persuaded.
