Obituary for Lois Ann Williams
Sister Lois Ann Williams was born in Emanuel County on November 11, 1936, the youngest of fourteen children born to the late Dea. Anthony Smith and Sis. Annie Bell Walker Smith. Lois was a member of Willow Spring Baptist Church, where she was baptized under the pastoral leadership of Rev. M.C. Williams.
Lois was affectionately known to everyone as “Lo”. She found joy in working in the church and singing in the choir. She dearly loved her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Lois worked for many years as a laundress and a cook at the Adolescent Center for troubled teens. She truly enjoyed her time with the children.
Lois was preceded in death by her husband, Clarence Williams and her daughter, Phyllis Elwin Ricks (Billy).
