Friends and family were stunned by the news that she was murdered in her Pasco home.
We spoke with three of her co-workers. They're still grieving over the loss of their friend.
"She was such a beautiful soul," said Amanda Smiley. "Why anybody would think they need to take that away from us - I still have to tell myself."
A candlelight vigil will be held Friday night at 8:30 at John Dam Plaza in Richland. Anyone wanting to pay respects to Williams is welcome to join.
