Tamer Williams




Deaconess Tamer M. Williams entered eternal rest on Monday, July 24, 2017 at her home in Ladysmith, Virginia. She was born on August 1, 1921 to the late Philip and Jennie Morris in Richmond, Virginia.

In 1945, she was united in holy matrimony to the late Richard C. Williams. Together they raised ten children, six of which preceded her in death-Thomas, Ellen, Rosa, Arthur, Sandra and Richard, Jr.

Deaconess Williams was employed for over ten year at the Westminster Canterbury Assisted Living Facility in Richmond, Virginia. She worked in the area of housekeeping and retired in 1986.

As a young woman, Deaconess Tamer Williams accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and joined the First Mount Calvary Baptist Church in Dawn, Virginia. There she allow her gift of singing to shine as a member of the choir. She was indeed a song bird through the years blessing many with her sweet and power voice. In later years, she was ordained as a Deacon at the Assembly of Christian Fellowship Baptist Church in Richmond, Virginia. Through her continued love for the Lord, she dedicated her final service and membership to the Second Mount Zion Baptist Church.

Many affectionately called her Mother Williams and she shared her wisdom with both young and old. One quote she often shared was “If someone throws a rock at you, you throw a piece of bread at them.”
She enjoyed the church and did not mind praising God by coming out the pew and shouting down the aisle. She had us all “Walking in Jerusalem just like John.”

Indeed Deaconess Williams was loved by many. She leaves to cherish her memories one son, Charles Morris of Newark, New Jersey; three daughters, Tamer Milbourne of Franklin Park, New Jersey, Evangelist Patricia Studvent (Rev. Percy Studvent, devoted) of Ladysmith, Virginia, and Prophetess Joanne R. Walker of Ashland, Virginia; a devoted granddaughter which she raised as her own, Rev. Sandra Williams of Colonial Heights, Virginia. She also leaves a legacy of 21 grandchildren, four devoted, Jennifer and Charlene Morris, both of Virginia, Pamela Anderson of Virginia and Prudence Smith of North Carolina; 24 great grandchildren, and 36 great-great grandchildren; son-in-law, Russell Frazier, two sisters, Ruby Campbell (Walter), Corine Morris; sister-in-law, Virginia Morris, and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. One devoted niece, Arlene Jones.
