It's hard to understand why God takes our loved ones during the prime of their lives. It is even harder not to question his decision. When death occurs; it creates a pain in our hearts, that never goes away. Through all the pain and heartaches, God has prepared us for this day in Romans 8:38-39. "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord".    

It is hard to understand why people are taken from us so young, but today as a family, we find comfort in knowing that Juanita was a special part of a well-lived life. When God calls our loved ones home, He leaves a gift of memories in exchange. Juanita Dublin Williams was born on March 30, 1964 to the late George Dublin and the late Martha Laurie Black Dublin in Harlem, New York.  She surrendered to the summon of her Creator on Thursday, June 25, 2020, St Joseph’s Hospital, Savannah, Georgia.

She has been a superior wife, mother; grandmother, sister, daughter, granddaughter, aunt, cousin, and friend. She talked a lot of trash but was funny in her delivery method, which made everybody laugh.  Juanita was known for her beautiful smile, model poise, and concern for making sure that everything was ok with her family and friends. She always looked for the positive in all people, even in the worst situation. Juanita attended the public schools of Hampton District 2 and was a 1983 graduate of Estill High School. She also attended Savannah Technical College, Savannah, Georgia earning a degree in paralegal studies and Millie Lewis School for Modeling. She was a professional model for many years. In 1986, she married the late Andrew (Nard) Williams, Jr.

She leaves to cherish her fond and loving memories: two daughters, Kiawanna Williams (Eric Owens) both of Savannah, Georgia and Beonkia Brown-Hill of Columbia, SC; three sons, Jeamond Dublin of Newark, NJ, Andrew Williams of Savannah, GA, and Dominick Warren of Gifford, SC;  3 grand daughters and 4 grandsons; a loving grandmother,  Marie Black of Estill, SC; brother, Darrell Dublin, Estill, SC; father in law, Deacon Andrew Williams, Sr.; in laws, Joseph Louis (Cynthia) Williams, Rincon, GA, Andrew Jerome Williams, Robert Lee Williams, Shaquita M.
