The memorial has special significance in that Williams was "reknowned"* for maintaining elaborate front and back yard flower gardens at her home for over 20 years. It is said that her gardens attracted visitors from all over Davis*. According to Davis Historical Society records, Williams was struck and killed by a speeding truck while crossing the 6th and F intersection. She was 88 years old.
