Nancy Ann Kincade Williams, age 78, passed away at her home in Corinth on April 26, 2020 after an 11 year battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis. Born Aug. 16, 1941, Nancy Ann was the only daughter of Sally and Robert Kincade and grew up in the Mississippi Delta with her brother, Pat Kincade. Nancy Ann graduated in 1959 from Clarksdale High School where she was elected both Homecoming Queen and Miss CHS. She spent her freshman year at Mississippi University for Women, then transferred to the University of Mississippi, the alma mater of both of her parents and where her father was awarded the coveted Norris Trophy as the best male athlete.
On the first day of orientation at Ole Miss, Nancy Ann met the love of her life, Kenneth Weaver Williams from Corinth. Nancy Ann was a member of Delta Delta Delta Sorority and was crowned Sweetheart of Sigma Chi in 1962.
Nancy Ann was a member of Fin de Siecle Club, Garden Club, and Junior Auxiliary. She served as home room mother for many years, scout leader, and swim team coach. As a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ, she taught Bible Study at her church, First United Methodist Church, as well as in the community. She volunteered as a youth leader at FUMC and her influence spread far and wide, one individual at a time. Her last years of life were spent battling a difficult illness, yet she found her purpose in praying for others.

She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Kenneth Weaver Williams; four children: Nan Williams Green (Stuart) of Corinth and Vicksburg; Sara Williams Berry (Mont) of Tupelo; Ken Williams (Edi) of Corinth; and Martin Williams (Adriene) of Jackson, Tenn.; and her brother, Pat Kincade (Cheryl) of Ventura, California.
