A Lincoln County woman died Sunday after a single-vehicle wreck in Catawba County.
Ginger Herndon Williams, 29, of 2084 Shuford Road was driving toward Maiden at about 7:20 a.m. Sunday, Sgt. C.D. Berry with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol said.
Williams was traveling north on Henley Road approaching its intersection with East Maiden Road, Berry said.
She traveled left of center, veered onto East Maiden Road and off the right shoulder, Berry said.
Her vehicle then overturned.
She was not wearing a seat belt.
Troopers do not yet know what caused the wreck, Berry said. There was no sign of drugs or alcohol in her body, and weather and road conditions were clear. No other vehicles were involved.
The crash happened just a mile outside of Lincoln County.
Williams was a devoted mother and volunteer, said Mitzi Williams, coordinator of LINC meals at Christian Ministry. The two were not related.
Ginger Williams helped in the Soup Kitchen and packed boxes for the LINC meals program, said Mitzi Williams.
The active volunteer was a mother of twin 9-year-olds and suffered from multiple sclerosis.
Often she came through the doors at Christian Ministry with the assistance of a walker. Mitzi Williams remembers seeing her limping on Friday. But the volunteer continued to help get the dayâ€™s meals prepared.
“Just to see her coming in here with a walker. It just floors me,” she said. “She was just an inspiration to people to not give up.”
Ginger Williams attended Lincolnton Church of God.
Linda Alverson knew her through church and Christian Ministry.
“She was such a good person and struggled so,” said Alverson. “With all her struggling, she always had a smile on her face.”by ALICE SMITH and DIANE TURBYFILL
