Denise "John" Williams, born on October 24th, 1963 in Browerville, MN passed away unexpectedly August 10, 2018 in Atlanta, GA. Denise is the 4th of seven children born to Rudy and Marlene John. She attended elementary school at Saint Mary of Mount Carmel and graduated from Long Prairie high school in 1981. She later graduated from Staples Technical College as a Color Processing Technician.
Denise started her journey of adult hood in Tennessee working for Color-Craft. Denise enjoyed seeing and meeting new people; often searching for the next adventure. While in Atlanta, GA she met her soul mate, Thomas (Greg) Williams, and they were married on June 10, 1987. In 1988 they moved back to MN where they pursued her dream of owning a business; a video store, in Rockford, MN. Denise always complained of the cold up North and around 1993 moved back to Georgia with her husband. She was a hard worker and enjoyed working with her hands. She will be greatly missed by anybody who ever worked, lived, or commuted with her. Denise could turn a dreary day into sunshine and rainbows. Her quirky, fun, loving soul shined through everyone.
