Obituary for George Williams

George  Williams
Born to the late John and Francis Williams on the twentieth day of March in the year of 1929 in Tallahassee, Florida. There were six brothers and five sisters; all gone on to be with the Lord. On Wednesday, March 29, 2017, George won the race and earth’s journey is over, as he quietly slipped away peacefully at home.

George received his education in the Leon County Public School system. Jesus Christ was accepted in his life while attending St. Mary Primitive Baptist Church in Tallahassee, at a very early age. While a resident of Egg Harbor, New Jersey, he attended Shiloh Baptist Church. After moving to Horntown, George became a member of Tabernacle Baptist Church, where he continued his membership until health became an issue and God took him home. “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.”

George was employed for a short time as a school bus driver in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, before becoming a chef for Brynmawr Hospital in Brynmawr, Pennsylvania, for twenty-one years before retiring. After retirement, he worked for five years at the Tajmahal in New Jersey, before moving to Horntown, where he enjoyed retirement.

George was a peaceful man with a quiet and loving spirit, kind to everyone he met. He didn’t say much, but listened very closely to all that was said before he spoke with words of wisdom. He was a loving and caring husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend.

George leaves to cherish his memories: his wife of twenty-five years as of March 30, 2017, Shirley Ann Williams of Horntown, VA; one daughter from a previous marriage, Elizabeth Theresa (Tyrone) Greene of Frederick, MD; one granddaughter, Dr. Shailen (Dr. Barrett) Woods of Galloway Township, NJ; two great-grandchildren, Barrett, II and Winston Woods, both of Galloway Township, NJ; two stepsons, Dr. James (Dr. Krisha) Coppedge of Dover, DE and John (Marcia) Jenkins, Jr. of NJ; one adopted daughter, Michelle Robinson of Philadelphia, PA; two adopted grandchildren, Tyler and Brielle Grant, both of Philadelphia, PA; ten step-grandchildren; seventeen step-great-grandchildren; two brothers-in-law, Linwood (Cheryl) Collins of Fruitland, MD and Thomas (Gladys) Collins of Horntown, VA; three sisters-in-law, Mary Waters and Janice Purnell, both of Horntown, VA and Florence Collins of Philadelphia, PA; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and church family.
