Carolyn Sue Williams, 81, passed away on May 22, 2021.

Carolyn was born September 14, 1939 in Clermont, Florida. In 1954, at the age of fifteen, she married Reuben William Williams. Over the course of their fifty-five year marriage, Carolyn was a loving wife, mom, and homemaker. The couple had five children, fourteen grandchildren, twenty-six great grandchildren, and three great-great grandchildren.

Carolyn loved the Lord and her family with all of her heart. There was never a day when she did not pray for each and every member of her large family.

During her life here on earth she was a world-traveler, expert gardener, and a wonderful cook. She enjoyed attending church and eating lunch at her favorite restaurants with her family. Her sense of humor was matched only by her faith in Jesus and love for her husband, children, and all of her grandchildren. Her mark left here on earth is even greater than the mark she would leave on your cheek after kissing you with her signature red or magenta lipstick.

She was preceded in her heavenly arrival by her husband Reuben William Williams. She leaves behind her five children (Susan Turbeville, Kathy McCarty, Peggy Reed, Greg Williams, and Reuben Williams), her sister Pamela Gilley, her brother Larry Gilileo, fourteen grandchildren, twenty-six great grandchildren, and three great-great grandchildren.

Visitation will be Wednesday, May 26th from 9:30-10 a.m. at Victory Church, with service to immediately follow at 10 a.m. Interment at Oak Hill Burial Park. Condolences may be sent to the family at Gentry-Morrison Funeral Homes.
