Dorothy was the daughter of the late Charles Harris and Dolores Hazelton. She was born at University Hospital Baltimore, MD. She lived between Baltimore and on the Eastern Shore for most of her life. In her later years she lived on the Eastern Shore in a water front home that she loved for over forty years.
In June of 1982 she married her beloved Delmar Williams. Their loving marriage of 29 years meant the world to them. If you were ever in the room with them you could see and feel the love,. True, genuine love. She was devastated when she lost him. Until her last days she still spoke of him and missed him. There is great comfort in knowing they are together again on a cruise through heaven.
During her lifetime Dorothy had a couple of rewarding jobs. She retired from Maryland Social Services after over 20+ years. Where she assisted families with access to health care, financial assistance and nourishment. She was promoted to management where she was a mentor to so many. Her kindness and tutelage was not taken for granted, she formed lasting friendships that still endure.
If you knew Mrs. Williams you know she loved the Lord and she loved her church. Always a steward for the Lord Dorothy served as a Church Clerk, Delegate to United Methodist Church Peninsula-Delaware Annual Conference, Administrative Board Member, Finance Committee Chairman, Trustee Board Member, and for many consecutive years, and she served as Membership Secretary. She was also a faithful member of the United Methodist Women.
She was affectionately known as "Minnie" by those that were close to her or knew her from childhood. If you knew her by Minnie, you "knew" her and loved her!
We bid farewell to a woman full of life! The SHARPEST dresser, world traveler, cruise lover, an avid gardener, loving devoted wife, kindhearted friend, and WOMAN OF GOD.
Dorothy was predeceased, by her husband Delmar Williams, sons Paige Davis Sr., Barry Davis, and a multitude of very close friends.
She leaves behind her adoring niece Peggy Stephens and a host of great nieces, nephews, God-daughters, cousins, her church family and friends that loved her and will miss her beyond measure.
