January 1, 1931 - November 11, 2020
Condolences are being expressed to the family of Mrs. Ella Marie Williams, age 89, who peacefully transitioned to be present with the Lord on November 11, 2020, at the SECU Jim and Betsy Bryan Hospice Home of UNC in Pittsboro, NC. She accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior at an early age and was a faithful member of the Piney Grove Baptist Church where she served as an Usher, Senior Missionary, and in whatever capacity there was a need, until her health challenges prevented her from doing so. Ella was united in holy matrimony to John Lewis Williams for 50 years. They were blessed with ten children. She worked diligently in the Northampton County School System, until she retired in 1996. Preceding her in death was her husband (John Lewis), children (Gloria, Carolyn, John R, Edna, and Leon), grandchildren (Dwayne, Tonya, Keisha, Andre). Her love and kindness will be treasured forever by her daughters; Deloise Rooks (John), Barbara Purnell, and Pat Williams; her sons; Robert Williams, Greg Williams (Latondra), grandson (Anthony), daughters-in-law (Lillian and Ann), son-in-law (Wilbert), (18) grandchildren, (22) great grandchildren, (4) great-great grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. Special thanks to caretakers; Virginia Jones, Dorothy Taylor, Linda Boone, and Elnora Richardson, for taking care of Ella between 2013 and 2017. Very special thank you to Brenda Balmer for the wonderful care she has shown mama over the years right up to the very end of her transition. Special thanks for the compassion and kindness shown by the ministry of Doctors, Nurses, Chaplain, and everyone at the UNC Hospice House. A private family graveside service of celebration has been scheduled for Sunday, November 15, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. at Piney Grove Baptist Church Cemetery, 2949 Fire Tower Road, Jackson, North Carolina 27845.
