The Commercial-News

---- — Lakwana Renee Williams began her earthly journey on Dec. 18, 1981, in Danville, the joyous baby girl of Leona Williams Duckworth and Raymond Miles.

Lakwana, affectionately known as Kwana, was raised in Danville by her mother Leona and stepfather Edward.

Kwana attended Danville High School, was previously employed at Con-Air Industry and attended Philadelphia Baptist Church.

Kwana enjoyed taking pictures, making her children smile and spending time with her family. She was a greater dancer, phenomenal cook, always ready for travel and an avid shopper. She was full of life and free-spirited. Through life, Kwana experienced much adversity but overcame them all victoriously with grace; she was a virtuous and very strong woman.

On Sunday, March 16, 2014, at 2:20 a.m., Lakwana Renee Williams, 32, was released from the pain and suffering of this world. Kwana’s presence and joyous essence will be greatly missed by her bountiful family members and closest friends.
