Kira Brooke Williams, 16, a resident of Morgan City, passed away Saturday, June 10, 2023.
Kira was born January 27, 2007, in Sweetwater, TN, the daughter of John Williams and Darlene Moore.
She will sadly be missed and lovingly remembered by her grandmother/caretaker, Bobbie Williams; Aunt & Uncle/ Caretakers, Melissa & John Schaff; Great grandmother Stella Dupre; Gigi Rose Schaff; 7-siblings; Makayla Williams, John Williams, Jaden Williams, Sebastian Williams, Johnathan Williams, Elida Ortega, Jose Ortega, Aria Seilaff; 3 bonus siblings: Grace Toups, Emma Schaff, and Benjamin Schaff.
Kira was preceded in death by her grandmother, Glory Gunn; great-grandmothers, Alice Silvers & Rita Rebardi, Great Grandfather Harold Dupre; and a Cousin Chad Williams.
Visitation will be held on Monday, June 19, 2023, at Twin City Funeral Home from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., with a service at 7:30 p.m.
Kira was entering her Junior year at Morgan City High School; she was a proud Tiger. She was in several organizations; The Student Council, BETA Club, and the JROTC, to name a few. The JROTC was where her heart was. She was a key member of their Color Guard, Drill, 21 Rifle Salute Squad, and Battalion Plans & Operations Officer. Kira logged no less than 150 community volunteer hours with JROTC.
She was selected above her peers to attend Army Leader Challenge Camp and The National Flight Academy. She mentored and helped local Veterans, Cub Scouts, Elementary Students, Churches, Kiwanis, and The Shrimp & Petroleum Festival.
Kira was recently nominated for the Congress of Future Medical Leaders Award of Excellence, in Boston.
Kira wasn’t 100% certain of what career path she would take but was leaning towards being an RN in either the Army or Air Force. Kira was inspired by Colonel Corey Williams and Sergeant First Class Bobby Stubbs who lead the Morgan City High School JROTC Program.
Away from school, Kira enjoyed working at Cajun Sneaux, making snowballs, and hanging out at work with her sister, friends, and boss, Jelena. She was an avid reader and even received a certificate last year honoring her million-word accomplishment.
Kira will be greatly missed by many including all her family, friends, classmates, and teachers at Morgan City High School.
The family would like to extend special thanks to all the friends, family, and community for the outpouring of care, love, and support during this difficult time.
