Mrs. Mary Baker Williams

After a brief battle with cancer, Mrs. Mary Baker Williams passed peacefully on November 13, 2015.

As she entered Heaven’s glory she was welcomed by her spouse of 57 years, Olin Williams, along with her parents Millard and Lovie Baker; and sibling A.G. Baker, Wayne Baker, and Billie Mitchell.

Mary was a graduate of Bowdon High School class of 1947. She married Olin Williams and they were blessed with two sons, Mike (Angie) Williams of Bowdon, Georgia; and Reverend Mark (Renee) Williams of Ranburne, Alabama/Centralhatchee, Georgia.

After graduating school, she worked for a number of years as a seamstress. She left to pursue her dream of being a full-time wife and mother.

This also gave her the opportunity to spend caring for the family farm. She had a love for gardening of vegetables and flowers—which she always looked forward to sharing. In the evenings she enjoyed quilting, always working on a quilt for family or friends.

Mrs. Williams is preceded in death by her parents, Millard and Lovie Baker; her spouse Olin Williams; her siblings, A.G. Baker, Wayne Baker, Billie Mitchell; and a host of cousins, nieces, and nephews.
