Obituary

Thelma Inez Jones Williams went to be with Jesus on Sunday, January 9, 2022.   She was born August 18, 1929 to the late Pinkie Ola and Ben Jones in Yulee, Florida.  She was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, Oren Avis Williams, Sr. as well as three sisters and three brothers.  Thelma and Oren have eight children, Gloria Jacobs (Desmond) of Advance, Rebecca Williams, Oren Williams, Jr., Norman Williams all of the home in Advance, Sharon Brown (Charles) of King, Wesley Williams (Leesa) of Winston-Salem, Barbara Bullock (Rick) of Ardmore, Oklahoma and Teresa Williams of Navarre Beach, Florida; six grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren and two great-great grandsons; also surviving are several nieces and nephews that she also loved.  She was an active member of Yadkin Valley Baptist Church and a member of “The Ladies Bible Class.”  Thelma worked a combined 25 years with the Magic Market and the Pantry Convenience Stores.  She loved fishing and the annual family vacations to Ocean Isle.  She enjoyed her word puzzle books and watching tv with Oren, Jr.  Often, she played her harmonica at church.  In earlier years, she enjoyed the horse shows and took pride in Barbara and Teresa as they showed.  One of the highlights of her life was a trip to Italy.  Thelma is a Proverbs 31 kind of woman and will surely be missed.  Many thanks to the staff at Trellis Supportive Care.  A funeral service will be held at 1:00 PM Wednesday, January 12, 2022 at Yadkin Valley Baptist Church with Rev.
