Pell City

Jettie M. Williams, age 81, of Pell City, passed away Friday, Jan. 1.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Rev Howard W. Williams; brothers, Calvin Moates and Aubrey Moates.

She is survived by her sons, Randall Williams (LaRae), Stevan Williams (Nannette) and Mark Williams (Karen); daughter, Pam Morris (Kevin); grandchildren, Brandi Wiliams, Justin Williams (Rachel), Shaun Williams (Alicia), Stephanie Williams, Will Morris, Jordan Morris and Jackson Morris; great grandchildren, Jack Carter Williams and Elizabeth Williams; brother, Edwin “Pig” Moates (Mavis); brother in law, Melvis Williams; and three sister in laws, Rose Williams, Bette Williams, and Jackie Moates.

She was born in Chilton County and graduated from Verbena High School. After high school, she married and began a working career at Sokol Furniture Store. She earned a business school certificate and began a 40+ year career as a bookkeeper working for Rosenberger’s-Birmingham Trunk, Village of Cook Springs and ended her career at Riteway/United Bolt Machine Shop. After retirement, she enjoyed volunteering for the Christian Love Pantry in Pell City.

She was a devoted, loving wife, mother and grandmother who loved Jesus, fried green tomatoes and John Wayne. She was crowned Mrs. Columbiana Health and Rehab in 2012, where she wore her crown proudly. She met everyone who walked through the doors at CH&R with a smile. Often she would be found roaming the halls and singing the great Ole hymns. Her joy of life and easy going spirit will be greatly missed.

We would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Columbiana Health and Rehab for the many years of loving care given to our mother.

Funeral services were held Sunday, Jan. 3 at Kilgroe Funeral Home Chapel at 2:30 p.m. with burial to follow at Cook Springs Cemetery. Visitation began at 1:30 p.m. Visit online at
