Obituary "For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing." II Timothy 2:6-8 Deborah Ann Wilds went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, September 15, 2012. She was born February 4, 1958 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania a daughter of the late Frank S. and Almerta Mack Waddell. She attended the public schools of Darlington County, South Carolina and later graduated with the Mayo High School Class of 1976. In April of 1976, she was joined in holy matrimony to her high school sweetheart, Levern Wilds. To this union, they were blessed with five children. Deborah was a faithful and hard-worker. She was employed at Wal-mart as a Department Manager in Fabrics and Crafts in Hartsville, South Carolina for 12 years. She also loved her family and enjoyed spending time with them. In her free time, Deborah loved to read, knit, cross stitch, crochet, and sew. This really gave her great joy. She loved sharing her work with family and friends. She had a great love for worship music. She always had a warm smile on her face that greeted whomever she met. You could see the love of Christ through her smile. Her smile would uplift those around her. Deborah came to Christ at an early age. She began her Christian journey at Lawson Grove Baptist Church. It was her love for Christ that led her to later join the Ambassadors for Christ Worship Assembly in Florence, South Carolina. She was a faithful member and enjoyed being a servant for Christ. She was the Assistant Church Secretary and also served on the Hospitality Ministry, and the Financial Ministry. She was a great woman of faith, full of Godly virtue. She did not mind sharing the Word of God with whomever she met. Those who knew and loved her will miss her dearly, but we know to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. She was preceded in death by her father, Frank S. Waddell; a sister, Elaina; two special cousins, Tina Mack and Robert Mack. Surviving to cherish the memory and maintain the legacy of Deborah Ann Wilds is her loving husband, Levern Wilds of Hartsville, SC; four daughters, Elaina Wilds, Enrika Wilds, Erica (Jim) Blue, and LaVerne "Lanette" Wilds all of Hartsville, SC; a son, Aaron Wilds of Hartsville, SC; a loving mother, Almerta L Waddell of Philadelphia, PA; three aunts, Lillie M Mack, Grace Robinson, and Mabel Waddell; four uncles, Cleveland (Janie) Mack and Edward (Rosa Mae) Mack, Alva (Betty) Mack, and Marian Waddell; a mother-in-law, Janie Wilds; four sisters-in-law, Betty (Joseph) James, Bernadine McLeod, Gladys Ridges, and Nettie Jean Wilds; four brothers-in-law, Henry Rhodes, Ned Wilds, Freddie (Lila Mae) Wilds, and Walter (Marcia) Wilds; seven grandchildren, DeAndre Wilds, Jeremy Blue, Joya Jackson, Daniel Wilds, Jaylyn Blue, Robbie "PJ" Jackson, and Joshua Byrd; one great grandchild, Braylin Wilds; seven special chidren, Nathan Phillips, Jarrod Byrd, Reggie Samuel, Toriano Wingate, Bernadette Forte, Kiesha Ahmad, and Coretta Scott, and a host of other relatives and very dear friends.
