Barbara Williamson -

Barbara Williamson, age 69, of Mountain City, Tennessee, passed away on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 at her residence following a courageous battle with cancer. She was born on July 28, 1943 to the late Clyde and Gladys Ratcliff Dean. In addition to her parents, Barbara was preceded in death by her husband, Bobby Lee Williamson, who passed away on April 30, 2007.

Barbara enjoyed being outside and walking when her health allowed. She loved her family and loved taking care of them. She also volunteered as a foster parent. Barbara read her Bible daily and enjoyed listening to gospel music. She was a member of First Freewill Baptist Church, where she attended until her health declined.
