Mother Frances (Williams) Roman was born August 10, 1918, in Monticello, Florida to the late Ed
and Selena Williams. She attended public schools in Jefferson County, in Monticello. Her growing
up years on The Park Hill Plantation and The Turnbull Plantation were filled with the hustle and
bustle of nine siblings that was overflowed with love.

Frances moved to Rochester, New York at the age of 37. She was married twice, first to Burton
Bellamy and then to William Roman, both deceased. Although she never had any children of her
own, Frances was considered a second Mom to her nieces, Ociemae Neeley (Monticello, Florida)
and Pamela Williams (Rochester, New York). Frances shared her love with her many, many nieces
and nephews, and with everyone who came into her life. She was known for always being available
whenever a family member or a friend was in need.
She accepted the Lord at an early age. She was a long-time (for over 60 years) member of Antioch
Missionary Baptist Church of Rochester, New York, where she served on the Missionary Board and
the Mothers Board. She served her church and community with faith and dedication. She also
worked for many years at the former Manhattan Restaurant in Rochester, New York, from where
she eventually retired.

Frances’ family and friends could add many stories about her kindness and wisdom by sharing their
recollections of her life and those of her ancestors. In 2018, The Honorable Mayor Lovely A. Warren
and the City of Rochester, along with Frances’ family, proclaimed August 10, 2018 (her 100th
birthday) “Frances Roman Day.” What an honor for her to receive this recognition!

Mother Roman made her transition from earth to glorious rest on May 21, 2021. She is predeceased
by: her parents, Ed and Selena Williams; spouses, Burton Bellamy and William Roman; eight
siblings: James, David, Estella, George, Janie, Dan, Herbert, and Louis. She leaves to cherish her
memory: her devoted sister, Lenora Williams of Vero Beach, Florida; Goddaughter, Gladys
Benjamin of Rochester, New York; many nieces and nephews, along with over 500 descendants of
the Williams Family, her Antioch Missionary Baptist Church family (Reverend James L. Cherry Jr.)
and a host of friends
