My mom, Sonya Lynn Williams, transitioned to her heavenly home on August 13, 2021 while holding my hand. She was born to the union of Henry Burkson Williams and Geneva Virginia Liles in Anson County, North Carolina on September 5, 1961.
My mom was a woman of faith, who spoke to God until she was unable to speak. A lifelong resident of Thomasville, she was a dedicated employee of Bayada for several years. She loved shopping, eating out, laughing with family and friends, listening to music, and she especially loved to dance. She had an outgoing personality that people immediately clung to, and always spoke words of encouragement in the most loving of ways. And although her healing was not to be found on this side, she fought hard and never gave up. I am just so very proud of her.
My mom was preceded in death by her parents, H.B. Williams and Geneva V. Liles, grandmother Essie Williams Lee, and a special cousin, Sharon Wallace, with whom she shared a sisterly like bond.
She leaves to cherish her memories a daughter, Tyronda Williams of the home; brothers, Travon McCormick, Lonnie (Angie) Polk, and Todd (Bernadine) Williams; nieces, Luqukia and Shyda Maske, Demetrius Sellers and Inari Williams; nephews, Marcus Jackson, Germaine Tart, Teyon Williams and Javarius Williams; cousins, other relatives and special friends.
The family extends a special thank you to Willianne Jenkins, Drs. Zekan and Adegoreye, and the staff of North Davidson Center.
A celebration of her life will be given in a memorial service on Sunday, August 22, 2021 at the Chapel of Johnson and Sons Funeral Home, 206 Fourth Street, High Point. The service will began at 1:00 0'clock pm.
Please adhere to CDC guidelines and wear a mask that is required.
