March 2013 Living Legend


Nominated by Ashley Williams


My grandmother Sadie R. Williams, wife of 48 years to the late Harold Williams Sr., mother of 4, grandmother of 18 and great-grandmother of 11; has always been our Rock. As spiritual mother and mentor she’s always willing to go above and beyond to brighten someone’s day. She was a skilled cosmetologist and salon owner for 40 years and still enjoys servicing faithful clients, though retired. Over the years, she has provided hair services to many for little to no cost in order to be a blessing to them. For several years, she was a member of the gospel singing group, “The Zionettes” and loved traveling and ministering.

She’s a dedicated member of Springs of Refreshing Fellowship Church where she serves as president of the usher board and hospitality department. My grandmother has taught me what it means to be a loyal servant of God in many capacities and to never give up on him. Despite the many obstacles in her life, she has always managed to stay the course and keep the faith, inspiring me to do the same. I have always admired, adored and appreciated this virtuous woman of God, who has given so much of herself to ensure the happiness of others. She loves cooking big meals, interior decorating and making everyone feel welcome into her home. At 77 years of age, she never fails to be an extraordinary mother, grandmother and friend.

I love my grandmother, my angel, my living legend.
