It is with deep and profound sadness that I inform the Wilberforce University community of the passing of Dr. McDonald Williams. Dr. Williams was the husband and life partner of Trustee Emerita and beloved Alumna Dr. Jamye Coleman Williams. Together they were fierce and unwavering supporters of Wilberforce. Their lived example of enduring love and personal commitment to each other and to Wilberforce was inspiring to all.
In times of gut wrenching loss, we are reminded of the power of love to heal and comfort. We are thankful for the gift of Dr. McDonald Williams and his example of a life well and richly lived.
We will keep Dr. Jamye Coleman Williams and the Williams family in our hearts and in our prayers.
Additional information regarding the Homegoing Services for Dr. McDonald Williams will be forthcoming.
