Williams is best known for entertaining audiences as Shirley Feeney, performing alongside Penny Marshall, who played Laverne, in the popular sitcom, which ran from 1976 through 1983.

Williams explained how faith is central to her everyday life, recalling times God would even pop up while filming "Laverne and Shirley."
