Barbara E. Williams

Barb was born July 24, 1938 in, we believe, Mobile, Alabama.  She attended Mobile County Training School and graduated in 1955.  She then attended Alabama State University in Montgomery; majoring in Business Administration and earning a bachelor’s degree in1960.

Barb taught business subjects for the Mobile School Board from 1961 until she and her husband moved to Cincinnati in 1970.

Barb joined the Cincinnati Police Division as a Clerk Typist 2 on July 18, 1971 and was assigned to District 4 (7017 Vine Street). During 1975, she and the rest of the personnel in Districts 4 and 7 moved to the new District 4 at 4150 Reading Road.  By 2003, Clerk Typist Williams was the last employee to make that move who still worked in the building and only one of two who still worked in the Police Department.  She was a tremendous help to any new district or relief commander coming to District 4.  On July 1, 2003 she retired with 32 years of service to the district, its employees, and its citizens.

Clerk Typist Williams passed away on March 6, 2019 at the age of 80.

A graveside service will be held at 12 Noon on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at the Vine Street Hill Cemetery at 3701 Vine Street.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, March 17, 2019 at 1130 hours at Bond Hill Presbyterian Church at 4909 Paddock Rd.

  1. Barb was a true LADY. Competent and professional. Always willing to help any one who needed it. She had a ready smile and an engaging personality. … CPD Sergeant (ret.) Mark Brown

  2. I was lucky to work the back office twice with Barb. I relied on Barb’s insight and support. When I was the Captain, Barb was invaluable to me in helping to weigh the pros and cons of an issue. Her ability to read people and the mood of the people living in D4 was tremendous. She was intelligent, poised and reassuring. God Bless her.

  3. Ms. Barbara was a incredible woman and I had the pleasure to work with her at District 4. I’m sorry that she is no longer with us.
