Remembering Zenobia


Niagara Gazette — She was loved by many in the community. Her friends often requested food items from her, especially baked goods. Those cookies she was delivering when she was hit were her creations. Her friends also enjoyed her peach cobbler.

Pastor Joseph Jones of Damascus Baptist Church on 24th Street said her baked goods were a staple in the city.

"She was well liked and loved in the community," he said. "She did a lot of baking. She baked for everybody."

Jones, who led the gathered group in prayer Thursday, said he met Hamilton-Williams when she started dating her husband, Rubin Williams, who was his friend.

He said losing her was tragic.

"They were a good family," he said. "They were ones to work hard, they enjoyed working to take care of themselves. And a year ago, she died. We just want someone to come forward."

In fact, the family also used the vigil to deliver a simple message to the driver who took their relative from them. They said they just want closure to rest themselves.

"There's no hatred," Rene Williams said. "We forgive you. We just ask you come forth and give us closure."

Anyone with information about the accident is asked to call the Niagara Falls Police Department traffic division at 286-456

Do you think cigarette sales to non-Native American customers should be taxed on reservations?

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
