DR. LINDA WILIAMSON
Dr. Williamson was born March 19, 1960 in Houston, Texas to Frederick and Jewel Johnson. She was educated in the Texas Independence School System where she won the National Spelling Bee in Elementary school. She was recognized for academic achievement in Who’s Who of America, participated in track and field and the drill team. She attended Prairie View A & M University where she pledged Delta Sigma Theta Inc. and graduated with honors in 1982.
Linda went to the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas where she received her Doctorate in Pediatrics. She joined the United States Air Force and proudly served as a pediatrician in Altus, Oklahoma.
She met and married Michael Williamson, and it was love at first site. Her smile and compassion in dealing with unpleasant situations grounded her deeply in her faith in Christ. Linda had three children: Sonia Michelle, Christine Jewel and Warren Michael. The family moved to Lawton, Oklahoma where Linda started her private practice in 1996.
Linda was a devoted wife and mother, and committed to her family. She was a faithful member of New Covenant Community Church where she continued to serve her community through mentoring and sponsorship. She established an inner city Youth Program that provided spiritual development, career counseling, and positive motivation to the youth in the Lawton-Fort Sill community.
Bernita Taylor, founder of Might Community Development & Resource Center, acknowledges that her vision has only come this far by the grace and power of God. Our vision is to be an advocate for the families in order to build and establish strong ties in our community. I began working from my home in 2003 with a personal secretary. In February of 2004 we opened our first office in Dr. Linda Williamson’s building. This space consisted of two rooms and an oversized hallway with our own private entry. Dr. Williamson donated the space free of charge because she believed in what we were doing.
Praise the Lord!
The void that has been left in her home, church and her community is deeply felt by all. Linda, we love you and miss you!
