LONGTIME SYRACUSE VOLUNTEER DIES AT 103: Earnestine Williams, the Southside Syracuse woman who lived during two major pandemics and volunteered even after she turned 100, has died of natural causes at age 103, her grandson said. Williams (above, in April) lived through one major pandemic, the Spanish flu of 1918, as a baby. Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon shared her story during a news conference earlier this year, reminding the community whom measures such as mask-wearing and social distancing are designed to protect. “She spent her final hours joyful with her family, thankful,” grandson Reginald Williams said.
