Dr. Kellen Williams, Associate Professor of English at Kennesaw State University, died on May 13, 2014. Private memorials were held at her home Thursday, May 15, and Saturday, May 17. Dr. Williams was known for the passion and commitment she brought to each class she taught. She was at Kennesaw from 1996 until 2012, and resided in Marietta, Georgia. After a courageous battle with brain cancer, she died at her home. She was born on April 11, 1960 and completed degree programs at Central Missouri State University, Clemson University, and Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. She leaves behind her parents, Peggy and Payten Williams, of Natchitoches, Louisiana and two brothers, Walt and Ron Williams, of St. Peters, Missouri, as well as numerous relatives, friends and her beloved dog, Reve. During this period of mourning, we are looking at the world through tears; perhaps we shall see things that dry-eyed, we could not see. Remember Kellen - a passionate soul, a compassionate heart, whose gentle fire will always burn.

The first time that we met Kellen we liked her. She had a beautiful smile and a warmth about her which put you at ease immediately. We will miss her but because of her recent encounter with Jesus Christ, we will see her again when we meet in heaven! We love you Kellen, and will always remember you! John and Denise Faulkner
