Obituary "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 4:7-8 Nannie Williams was born October 22, 1916 in rural Darlington County, South Carolina, a daughter of the late James Corbet and Nezzie Jackson. Her early life was spent in the farming community. She received her education in the public schools of Darlington County, South Carolina. She graduated from Butler High School. She was married early in life to the late Henry Wilson, Sr. Nannie moved to Washington, DC in her early thirties and remained there until she returned to Hartsville, South Carolina 40 years later. After the death of her first husband, she married the late John Williams. Nannie loved the Lord and it was this love that led her to join Jerusalem Baptist Church, where she was a lifetime member. She enjoyed worshipping and fellowshipping with her church family. She served her beloved church in many capacities. She was a Deaconess, the Mother of the Church, a choir member, a member of the Missionary Society, and several other spiritual organizations of the church. Those who knew and loved her will miss her dearly. She was preceded in death by both of her parents, both of her husbands; two brothers, David Williams and Eliase Williams; and a sister, Theola Scott .
