Virginia Melton Williams, 88, of Providence, KY passed away Tuesday February 1, 2022 at Baptist Health Deaconess in Madisonville, KY. She was a loving mother and a member of Victory Baptist Church in Providence, KY. Virginia was honored to be called Mom and her life’s work was dedicated to the love and care of her family. The Sunday dinners after church and huge holiday meals brought her much joy. Another favorite title for her was Mamaw Gin as she always lit up with a big smile every time she received a phone call or a visit from any of her grandchildren. She shared a passion for reading, working puzzles and always kept her mind engaged. Her fond love of shoe shopping brought her great pleasure as well. She was preceded in death by her husband Liston Kenneth Williams, her parents Thomas Clyde and Evie Alice Melton, 1 brother Willie C. Melton, 1 sister Mary Ruth McClure and 1 grandson Justin Michael Williams. Survivors include 1 sister Clois Melton Yates of Wood River, IL, 4 daughters Mary Schneider (Bill) of Hopkinsville, KY, Donna Gardner (Danny Fred) of Clay, KY, Marcia Whitledge (Walter) of Madisonville, KY and Sharon Tackett (Woody) of Providence, KY, 4 sons Kenny (Serena) Williams of Providence, KY, David Williams of Hopkinsville, KY, Charles (Paige) Williams of Cadiz, KY and Jerry (Tracy) Williams of Franklin, KY; 17 grandchildren, 40 great grandchildren and 1 eagerly anticipated great-great grandson.
