Andrea Renee’ Williams-Procter, lived a full and blessed life and passed away on October 11, 2020 in Lorton, VA in home hospice. Andrea was born on 2 July 1958 in Tampa, FL to Floyd Williams and Frankie Chapman. In 1976 she graduated from Chamberlain High School in Tampa and attended Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL, where she studied and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Elementary Education. Commissioned an Army Officer through ROTC, Andrea served our nation as an active duty officer, where she met and married Hank (Webster) Procter. For over 36 years her love and compassion filled the hearts and souls of all who experienced her presence. She was a kind and thoughtful person who left those she encountered enriched.
I’ll repeat what my daughter said, “The world is still turning and somehow life is going on, and so will we, but we want to call Andrea and tell her how abnormal every “normal” day is without her”. Andrea was truly a loving soul, who was always kind, thoughtful, caring and strong, always optimistic, no matter the circumstance. We will miss her humor, her smile and the cute little giggle when something was so funny her eyes and nose crinkled on the edges and tears filled her eyes. Her zest for life was boundless as was the love and dedication she had for her family and friends.
She was our first best friend and even though her love will always be with us, we will miss her. She is survived by her husband Hank, her two children, Jacqueline Renee’ and William Alexander, sisters and brothers, her father, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, grandchildren and friends.
Due to COVID-19 safety concerns, there will be no in-person memorial services. Andrea will be cremated and upon approval her ashes will be interred/inurned at an appropriate location. When that celebration of her wonderful life will be held is yet to be determined. Acknowledgements may be sent to Hank Procter, 8501 Barrow Furnace Lane, Lorton, VA 22079.
