LILY MAE THOMAS WILLIAMS
February 23, 1921 December 11, 1988
The Lord is my light and my salvation:
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life:
of whom shall I be afraid?
Lily Mae Thomas Williams, known affectionately as "Mamie," was
born to the late Mary Rabsatt Gordon and Joseph Thomas on February
23, 1921, in Long Look, Tortola, B.V.I., where she spent her early child-
As a young lady, Lily Mae migrated to the island of St. Thomas
where she met John Williams. They were united in holy matrimony and
from their union came twelve children.
Lily Mae was employed with the Head Start Program for approxi-
mately fifteen years, until her retirement.
She was a kind, hard working individual who was always willing to
help her family and fellow man. At times when things were difficult
she worked hard to keep things together and was supportive of her family.
Lily Mae left her greatest legacy to her children, which was for them
to support each other, stay together and love each other as one.
May she rest in peace.
One thing have I desired of the Lord,
That I will seek after;
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
To behold the beauty of the Lord,
and to enquire in His temple.
