Queen E. Ligon Williams

Queen E. Ligon Williams, born in Jackson County, Arkansas on August 8, 1932, went home to eternal rest on Thursday, February 15, 2018.

Queen and her family moved from Arkansas to Gloversville when she was a young girl. She received her education in the Gloversville School System, graduating in the class of 1953. After graduation, Queen moved to New Jersey to attend nursing school. She returned to Gloversville shortly after the birth of her first child. Queen worked for 25 years the former Fulton County Infirmary as a nurse’s aide, retiring sometime in the 1990s. I can’t ever remember a time when I ever heard a negative comment when speaking about our Mom. She was the Heart and Soul of this family. We will forever be blessed for having her in our lives!

Queen is survived by her companion, Henry Pollard Sr.; daughters, Devette Williams, Paulette Warner (Jeffrey), Terese Pollard; grandchildren, Yolanda Dudley, Andre Williams Sr., Natasha Allen (Michael), Brittany Pollard, Cameron Pollard, Ian Warner, Jaret Warner, Lauryn Kaczor and Sierra Brower; great-grandchildren, Gilbert Dudley Jr., Brandon Dudley, Chandler Kane, Keisha Williams, Keirshea Williams, Kateri Perry, Andre Williams Jr., Ariana Pollard and Brayah Queen Allen; sisters-in-law, Ellen Pollard Ligon, Jeraldine Pollard Beekman; special cousin, Harold Laird; close and very special friends, Bart and Val Warner and the Brower-Kaczor family; and several beloved nieces and nephews.
