The sweet, soft, gentle spirit of Loma Mellie Stone Williams has left us. She passed away Thursday, May 21, 2015 at an Etowah hospital as a result of a four wheeler accident. Her family, friends, neighbors, community will miss her terribly. She has been married to Frank Williams, her husband for nearly 65 years. She has four children-Deborah, Dan, Mark and Jeff-and their spouses Terry Blair, Andi, Frances and Kelly, who she loved as her own children. Her grandchildren, Dustin, Savannah, Taylor, Toby, Sadie, Kane and Maggie and her three great-grandchildren Laney, Lorelai, and Sawyer added so much joy to her life. She had special neighbors who brought food (she loved to eat!), checked on her and her husband, dropped by for visits, did chores for her and generally enriched her life. We thank them so much. She spent her last days doing what she wanted. She went to church, used her Mother's Day money shopping for new clothes, attended her great-granddaughter's kindergarten graduation, sat in her carport talking with neighbors, gossiped on the phone with her special friends, planted her garden and flower seeds, cleaned up her yard, and generally enjoyed her life doing what she wanted to do. Her parents, John O. and Dovie Burris Stone, all her brothers, Buck, Luther, Olice, R.B. and Charlie and sister, Estelle Norris have gone on except for her older sister Theo Yates of Benton, TN. Her many nephews and nieces appreciated her for her sweetness. She was born on February 10, 1930 and grew up in Polk County working in the fields and picking cotton. She didn't have a high school education, but her impact is so strong on her family and friends that she changed many lives.

Interment is 2:00 p.m. Sunday, May 24, 2015 in the Four Mile Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 5-8 p.m. Saturday, May 23, 2015 in the chapel of Higgins Funeral Home.
