Alana Grace Williams, 17, tragically passed away on April 10, 2022 from an automobile accident through no fault of her own.

Born June 4, 2004 in Fairfax, Virginia, she was the daughter of Michael Henderson Williams and Jennifer Brooke Ann Bartok.

Alana was a senior at Washington High School in Charles Town, WV, where she was due to graduate in May 2022.  

She was getting ready for her freshman year of college, torn between Fairmont University and West Virginia University.

From the day she was born everyone that knew her saw how special she was.  She had a booming loud voice that matched her equally boisterous personality.

Although she had many, many friends, she had some special friendships with Natalie Happy, Austin Ritter, Haylee Littleton, and Sydney Myers that were unique and will forever be treasured.

She is survived by her mother, Jennifer Bartok and her stepfather, Albert Bartok, both of Pensacola FL;  her father, Michael Williams, of Charles Town, WV; her  brother, Caine Williams, of Hermitage PA; grandparents, Margaret Williams and Williard Williams, of Knox PA, and  grandmother, Carol Garrett of Hermitage, PA. 

 Alana is also survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins whom she loved dearly.

She is preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Ronald Garrett, who we are sure met her with open arms when she passed. 

A visitation will be held on Wednesday, April 20, 2022 at Eackles-Spencer & Norton Funeral Home, 256 Halltown Road, Harpers Ferry, WV from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. 

Funeral services will be private.

Condolences may be expressed
