Kimberly Williams Napper, 62, of Madison, passed away April 12, 2020 in Jackson, Mississippi. A memorial service will be held for her at a later date when possible.
Kimberly is preceded in death by her father, Tom Williams. Kimberly was loved by her mother Joyce Williams; sisters Crystal Williams Christner and Charmaine Williams Henriques; husband Lewis Napper; children Summer Godfrey Brewer and Shauna Godfrey; grandchildren Virginia Cates, Miller Cates, Carson Brewer, and Piper Brewer; nieces Nichole Morris, Alyssa Costa, and Layla Christner; and nephew David Runk.
Kimberly loved God and loved people. She loved her family. She loved her kids, grandkids, babies, animals, flowers and being outside. She loved her puppies. She loved the beach. She loved teaching and she loved her students.
A close friend who worked with her in ICU recently said, “Kimberly always talked to her patients even if they were unconscious or heavily sedated. She would hold their hands and brush their hair. She was a very compassionate nurse.”
Kimberly was kind and courageous. She was always ready with a smile and a laugh. She had a great sense of humor and was hopelessly optimistic. She was a bright spot on the planet and she was married to the luckiest man in the world. She is a beautiful, sweet, loving, nurturing soul.
