The Legacy of Life

Mrs. Grace H. Williams

Mrs. Grace H. Williams, age 97, began her earthly journey on September 14, 1926, the daughter of the late Mr. Virgil and Mrs. Victoria Shiggs Jackson in Sylvania, GA.

Grace made her home in Florida in the late 1950’s where she was employed with Broward County until she retired in 1992.  She returned home to Sylvania in 2009.  She was a faithful member of the New Light Baptist Church where she spent much of her time volunteering as well as in her community.  She enjoyed praying, reading her Bible, cooking, doing word search puzzles, and just spending time with her family that she loved so much.

On Sunday afternoon January 28, 2024, Mrs. Grace H. Williams completed her journey from this life and embraced eternal joy in the Presence of our Lord.
