Hannah Williams Memorial

This obit excerpt is from Friday Oct 31 issue of The Knoxville News-Sentinel.



WILLIAMS, HANNAH BROOKE – age 12 of Dandridge, achieved her ultimate victory in Jesus early in the morning of October 29. Cancer did not defeat her, in fact at a Revival at Mt. Zion UMC on October 22 Hannah told all gathered there “The doctors tell me that I have a 10 percent chance to live, but my God has and will take care of me.” Hannah went on to ask “Do you know my Jesus? If you don’t, you need to get to know my Jesus.” Anyone who knew Hannah realized it was all about them and not about her. She was more concerned about them than herself. This was acknowledged at Lake Junaluska during the United Methodist Annual Conference in June of this year when Hannah was awarded the Harry Denman award for Evangelism the highest award given out by the United Methodist Church . Hannah’s life was not about her it was all about introducing others to Jesus. On October 29 Jesus welcomed home a true child of God who had touched more lives than we will ever know. She was a student at Maury Middle School and was active in the youth group at Mt. Zion United Methodist Church . In lieu of flowers the family has requested that memorials be made to Mt. Zion United Methodist Church , memo: Hannah Williams Memorial, P.O. Box 1025 , Dandridge , TN 37725 .
