Age 89, of Lansing, MI, was born December 19, 1929, in Inverness, Mississippi, to parents John Dillard and Carrie Young. Berline moved to Lansing, MI, with her husband and children on November 2, 1974. For the last two years she was cared for by her daughter, Mary Wilhite. She was called home July 29, 2019, in Lansing, MI, at the St. Lawrence Hospice House.

Berline was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Williams Sr.; three children, Joseph Williams Jr., Delma Ann Hutchinson, and Earlean Whitehead; and two grandchildren, Tommy Lee Williams and Lawanda Jones.
