In Loving Memory of Our Beloved Matriarch
With heavy hearts and profound sadness, we mourn the loss of our cherished matriarch, Helen Dolorese Williams, who peacefully passed away at home at the age of 99. As she departs from this world, we find solace in knowing that she will be reunited with her beloved husband and daughter in the eternal embrace of heaven.
Helen is preceded in death by her late husband, Buford Emanuel Williams; eldest daughter, Cheryl Anne Stanley; parents, Carl and Anna Taylor; siblings, Warren Taylor, Don Taylor, Paul Taylor, Frieda Sutherlin, and Thelma Hill. She is survived by her siblings Judy Neal, Pat Arthur, and Phyllis Robertson; son Carl Williams (Corine) and daughter Susan Williams Currie; her grandchildren, Amanda Scruggs (Carol), David Stanley (Michelle), Sheri Brewer (Robert), Lisa Stanley, Kristina Porter (Caleb), Angela Rowe (Quentin); her great grandchildren, Harley Medley (Brad), Larry Stanley, Brittany Stanley, Alex Stanley, Isabella Stanley, Kiersten Brewer, Michael Brewer, Alyssa Brewer, Elijah Schroeder, Nate Schroeder, Raegan Kranefuss, Lucas Porter, Joel Carden III, Wyatt Rowe, Shelby Rowe; and great great grandchild Adam Hulion.
Born on November 13, 1923, Helen graced our lives with her radiant love, unwavering strength, and indomitable spirit. She was a pillar of support, an endless source of wisdom, and an embodiment of resilience. Her legacy will forever be imprinted on the hearts of all those fortunate enough to have known her.
As a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Helen nurtured her family with immeasurable affection and care. Her devotion knew no bounds, and she created a warm and loving home where cherished memories were woven together. Her selflessness and unwavering love were the foundation upon which her family thrived.
Helen possessed a strength that knew no limits. She faced life's trials with courage and determination, inspiring those around her to persevere in the face of adversity. Her unwavering resilience became a guiding light, illuminating the path for future generations.
Stubborn in the most endearing way, Helen was steadfast in her beliefs and convictions. Her unwavering determination served as an inspiration, empowering those around her to stand tall and embrace their own unique journey. Her spirit of independence and tenacity left an indelible mark on all who had the privilege of knowing her.
Now, Helen joins her beloved husband and daughter in the heavenly abode, where their spirits will forever intertwine. The reunion of these cherished souls brings comfort and reassurance, knowing that they are united in eternal peace and love.
While we mourn the loss of our dear matriarch, we also celebrate the remarkable life she lived. Helen's legacy of love, strength, and stubborn determination will forever be etched in our hearts. Her spirit will continue to guide us, reminding us to cherish our loved ones, to embrace life's challenges with unwavering resolve, and to live each day with an unyielding love for all.
As we bid farewell to our beloved Mama and Granny, we find solace in the cherished memories and the knowledge that she has found eternal peace. May her soul rest in heavenly serenity, and may her memory be a beacon of inspiration for all whose lives she touched.
Rest in peace, dear Angel. You will be profoundly missed, but your love and spirit will forever endure in our hearts.
