She attended many churches, St. Rest Baptist Church, First United Pentecostal Church and Fizer Temple Church of God in Christ.
Kameshia was diagnosed with a serious illness at an early age. She loved the simple things in life that we sometimes take for granted. Her favorite activities were riding in the car, listening to music, rolling balls and clapping her hands with happiness. She loved being around people.
Kameshia graduated in 2006 from Minden High School and from there, she enjoyed her mother's unconditional love. Kameshia led a valiant fight with her illness for 27 years and on July 7, 2011, she departed this earthly life at Minden Medical Center.

Williams; grandmother, Mrs. Bertha Williams; four uncles, Greg (Angela) Williams, Quincy Williams, Leevi B. Williams, Jr. and Timothy Williams of Atlanta, Georgia; one great-grandmother, Hattie Sims Brown of Heflin; and a host of other relatives and friends.
