Latanya Williams

A beautiful soul left this earth when Latanya passed away on August 26, 2019. She was a true people person and enjoyed her family and friends.

She was thoughtful, generous and caring, always supportive of her extended family. She was very accepting and non-judgmental of all persons.

Last year Latanya won the Fran Flur Award and was chosen to go to Unleash Your
Potential through ADHA.

 For many years she was an integral part of NJDHA and Bergen component. Her passing will be mourned by so many, and her
gentle soul will be forever in our hearts and minds.

She will be greatly missed.
