Carrie L. Williams, born on February 12, 1948 in Appling, GA was a very loving, compassionate and giving person. She devoted her life to being a blessing to others through her family, her church and anyone who knew her. Both her strength and courage was an inspiration to many. Tragically she was taken from us on January 26, 2005 from breast cancer.
She was born to David and Carrie B. Williams. Being the fourth born of eight children and the only girl, Carrie was tough, yet warm and caring. She was also the proud mother of one daughter, Julia Green.
She received her early education in Columbia County, GA but later moved to Richmond County and was a 1965 graduate of Lucy C. Laney High School. Carrie earned college credits at both Augusta Tech and Augusta College with a concentration in business. After college, Carrie put those skills to work at Georgia Power Company where she was a customer service supervisor for over thirty-three years.
Carrie was full of life. She served both her church and community faithfully. When she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she continued to fight the good fight. She would often quote an exert from Psalm 23 that states “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me.” Carrie faced obstacles in her life, but met those obstacles with faith in God. She would likewise encourage others to press forward and reach your highest potential.
She leaves memories that will forever be cherished by her family and friends.
