I, Daphina S. Williams, am the wife of Alphonso Williams and the mother of five children! I am a Military brat residing all over the United States. I am graduate of Williston High School, class of 1989. I graduated from the School of Mortuary Science in Decatur, Georgia in 1992. My desire was to return back home to Williston, Florida and pursue my dream. I obtained this dream by establishing a family funeral home in Chiefland Florida that I fully managed for seventeen years. As I journeyed around many communities and families, I found myself in Clearwater, Florida opening up a funeral home establishment with a relative in 2010 in which I was a proud owner for 8 years. Still working in the funeral industry and finding myself not fulfilling my full purpose, I decided to become a Independent funeral home owner as well as a much settled Funeral Director and Embalmer in which I am currently the owner and Licensed funeral director and embalmer of D. Williams Mortuary Services, LLC in Gainesville, Florida. I am forever grateful, humbled and blessed for the foundation and opportunities that were established in 1994, by my father, I will always be appreciative and take those many lessons with me throughout.
I am Here Walking into my purpose and continuing to serve with “A Spirit of Excellence.” D. Williams Mortuary Services, LLC was established and rooted in Gainesville, FL. I am no longer affiliated with any other firm. I hold dear to my heart the opportunity to serve as the secretary of Independent Funeral Directors Association of Florida. I am also honored to be a member of the 100 black women in funeral services, and the Independant Funeral Directors Association.
