Rejina Michelle Underwood Williams, 52, was born March 29, 1966, in Lake City, Florida to Dorothy Underwood Rothwell and the late Willie Williams. On Sunday, July 8, 2018, Rejina was called home after a long five year battle with breast cancer. Rejina attended Columbia High School, where she played softball and was a CHS Majorette. After graduating with the Columbia High school class of 1984, she pursued a career as a Cosmetologist. During her 22 years as a stylist, she was well known for her relaxing shampoos and slayed hairstyles. After her tenure as a Stylist, she was employed at Niblack Elementary school, and then Summers Elementary school, retiring from summers. Rejina loves sports, especially football. In 2003, she joined the women's professional football league, playing for the Jacksonville Dixie Blues for three years. Raised in the Christian faith, Rejina loved to attend services at her home church, Olivet Missionary Baptist Church where she loved to praise the Lord. She loved music, pets, and all children. Rejina was also known for her contagious smile and laughter, courageous attitude, and diligent work ethics. She was an excellent mother to her three children.
