In Memoriam
















EULOGY


Rosita Anita Bufford was born on August 13, 1893.
She married Hubert Williams and two children were the
result of that marriage, after having three other children.

Lil Mother, as she was widely known, was employed by
the Paiewonskys as a cook, after her retirement she contin-
ued to prepare sumptious meals for different organizations,
parties and the church in which she was an active member.

Lil Mother, in addition to working so hard, still found
time to assist in the rearing of her grandchildren, and even
though she was getting down in age she helped in taking
care of her great great grandchildren.

As a result of her kindness to all, she will be missed.
However we know that she has gone to meet her Maker.

Mommy Lil Mother was a wonderful mother, grand-
mother, great grandmother, great great grandmother and
friend.

"Mommy", may she rest in peace.
