“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” - Revelations 21:4

We belong to God; not only for a few fleeting years that we call life, but for eternity. God is on both sides of the river. He walks with us during our earthly life and is there to receive us for our eternal life. We are in God’s presence in life, death, and everlasting, yet we must cross the river to receive our crown of life. Helen Brown Williams’ earthly life began in Nesmith, South Carolina, on January 2, 1950, when God gave this beautiful individual to Emma Mae Singletary and Jack Brown. Helen Williams received her formal education in the Williamsburg County School System in Hemingway, South Carolina. She furthered her education at Lindsey Hopkins Technical College in Miami, Florida, and later became a computer operator. Helen Williams accepted Christ as her Savior and united with Holy Ghost Church of Christ, where she served as an evangelist.

Helen Brown was united in holy matrimony with Lee Williams in Miami, Florida. Their union was blessed with four children, Michelle Williams, Leonardo Williams (preceded her in death), Antonio Williams, and Ed Williams. In her leisure, she enjoyed her children and grandchildren, reading her Bible, going to church, watching T. D. Jakes, and listening to all of Lee Williams and The Williams Brothers’ songs. Her favorite song was I Can’t Give Up by Lee Williams. She was employed by the NOAA U. S. Department of Commerce and a member of the NOAA/ERL Hurricane Division Center. God saw Helen was tired, and the hills were too hard to climb, so He gently closed her eyes. She quietly succumbed to the Lord on March 2, 2022.

She was preceded in death by her parents: Emma Mae Singletary and Jack Brown, and son: Leonardo Williams.

She leaves to cherish her memories: daughter, Michelle Williams, and sons, Antonio Williams and Ed Williams, all of Brunswick, GA; nine grandchildren, Antonio Jr., Antwan, Jeremiah, Arielle, Ajah, Aaron, Eddie, Phoenix, and Amiah; sisters, Josephine Williams, Rutha Mae Brown, Mary Brown, and Ernestine Wright, all of Hemingway, SC; one brother, Robert Lee Brown of Hemingway, SC; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and sorrowing friends
