Karley was born on May 31, 2002 to Kenny Williams, Jr. and Tawna Williams. She was one in a million. She is the face to a disease that very few people know called Heterotaxy. Karley was fighting endless battles and illnesses everyday and had twenty-nine surgeries. She was supposed to live 6-9 months, but she turned 17 years old in May.

Karley loved the Lord and prayed daily. She was a warrior, who was brave, beautiful, smart, and loved some baseball. Each day, she danced and sang her heart out. Karley was a blessing to everyone that met her, and she left an untouched legacy. She was happy, spunky, and humbling to be around. She was a loving daughter and friend.

Karley passed away on October 25, 2019 from a battle of pulmonary hypertension, chronic lung disease, and congestive heart failure.

She was preceded by death by her grandfather Charles A. Morse.

Survivors include her mother, Tawna Williams; her father, Kenny Williams, Jr. and his wife Amy Williams; brother, Cayden Morse, sisters, Kensey Williams, and Kaeley Yocom; great-grandmothers, Tillie “Tina” Kantner, and Jeanette Paupst; grandmother, Beverley Morse; grandparents, Ken and Linda Williams; aunts and uncles, Roger and Dalana Williams, Kendell Williams, Tiffany Morse, and Shane Morse; niece, Willow Morse; and her longtime nurse and companion, Sandy Cozart Williams.  She had many other relatives, friends, teachers, therapists, classmates, and teammates.
