We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” II Corinthians 5:8
As you celebrate the setting of my sun, may you always remember the times we've shared and the memories that we've made. May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus. I want each of you to remember my smile, which was as bright as the stars in the sky. Remember my laughter, which was like the beautiful sound of ocean water. Through all the pain and suffering, remember the joy that I brought into your lives. Brenda Ann Wilson-Williams was born on August 29, 1960, to the late Roslyn Fields Wilson and the late Malcolm Wilson in Hampton, South Carolina.
Brenda was affectionately known to her family and friends as “BA”. She was educated in the public schools of Hampton District 2 and was a 1978 graduate of Estill High School. While in high school, she was a cheerleader. She furthered her education at Coastal Carolina College earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education. After graduation, Brenda became an elementary school teacher at Clyde Ervin Elementary School, Jacksonville, North Carolina. She also worked with hearing impaired students in the Jacksonville, North Carolina school system. At an early age, she joined First Thankful Baptist Church, Estill, South Carolina.
In her leisure time, she enjoyed being the life of the party. Brenda had a contagious laugh. She was also a very direct person, so you knew that she meant business. She had a special love for all children and was a caregiver to many.
God saw Brenda was tired, and the hills were too hard to climb, so He gently closed her eyes. She quietly succumbed to the Lord on Saturday, March 12, 2022, in Jacksonville, North Carolina. She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Malcolm Fields, Sr., and Willie Wilson; sister, Shirley Riddles; and grandmother, Pearlie Mae (Hemma) Moore.
She leaves to cherish her memories: daughters, Brittany and Arielle Palmer both of Hampton, SC ; grandchildren, Malik Singleton, Bre’Onna Singleton, Kaniye Singleton, Zielle Singleton, Brooklynn Singleton, and Nylah Singleton; sisters, Debra ( Gene) Weaver of Jacksonville, NC, Nancy (Melvin) Savoy of Williamsburg, VA, and Kimberly (Lawrence) Brown of Jacksonville, brothers, Albert and Jackie Wilson both of Jacksonville, NC, and Alexander Fields of Florence, SC; Godchildren, Patrice Wilson, Shacone Davis, Jackie Eady, Nathaniel Fuller, Natiema Fuller, and Cyelien Warren; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and sorrowing friends.
