The Essence of Her Life
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV)
Mother Callie Mae Williams began her journey on this earth on January 10, 1926 in Early County, Georgia. She was the fifth of ten children born to Sylvester Williams and Emma Wade Williams.
Mother Callie raised a wonderful child, Horace, and assisted in raising her nieces and nephews. She cared deeply for her family, church family, and neighbors. Mother Callie loved to sing hymns, visiting various churches, singing with the “Seven Shape Notes” group, talking on the telephone, gardening and cooking her favorite meals for her family.
At an early age, she joined New Prospect Missionary Baptist Church in Arlington, Georgia. Mother Callie served as a Class Leader and one of the Church Mothers’ of New Prospect until her health failed. She did this not out of obligation, but because of who she was.
On Wednesday, July 5, 2023, Mother Callie transitioned to her Heavenly home. She heard the Master’s call and claimed the resting place prepared for her. Her parents and siblings: Rosetta Williams, Lonia Pelt, Fessor Williams, Maynard Williams, Arvester Williams, Lonnie Williams and Sylvester Jr., welcomed her with outstretched hands as she walked through the pearly gates.
Left to cherish her memories are her son, Horace Williams (Idella) of Thomasville, Georgia; grandchildren: Sonya Scott of Montgomery, Alabama, Rita Williams of Smyrna, Georgia and Andrea Williams of Rex, Georgia; four great grandchildren: James Edward Scott III, Alexis Watkins (Gregory), Ariel Walker (Shaquille) and Allison Scott; five great-great grandchildren: Annalise Watkins, Gregory Watkins, Jr., Athena Watkins, Adrian Scott and Cartier Scott; sisters: Emma Martin and Josephine Williams both of Cleveland, Ohio; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins; a special friend, Ms. Lula Glenn of Arlington, Georgia; caregiver: Ms. Shirley Wimbush of Blakely, Georgia; and sorrowing friends.
