Mrs. Cecilia Williams Gaye – (Sunrise: October 24, 1931 ~ Sunset: December 14, 2016)

Revelation 14:13 – And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labor, for their deeds follow them!”

The Williams, Johnson, Jackson and Greenfield families of East Harper (Bunker Hill), Maryland County, Liberia, sadly announce the loss of our mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, Mrs. Cecilia Williams Gaye (affectionately known as “Aunt Cia”). “Aunt Cia” was called from labor to rest the morning of December 14, 2016 at her home in East Harper.

Born on October 24, 1931 to the union of the late Reverend Garfield Charles Williams and Dorinda Elizabeth Williams, Cecilia was the sixth of seven children. She is predeceased by her daughter Dorinda; brothers: Samuel, Levi, John, Joseph, and sister, Ruth. Mourning the loss of this loving soul is her only sister and best friend, Rose Priscilla Williams Ivy of Durham, NC; sister-in-law Mrs. Musu Zinnah Williams; children: Agnes, Helena, Trokon Toe, Michael, John, grandchildren; nieces and nephews to include: Annie Ivy Woyee, Leona Williams Washington, John Ivy, Sophia Williams Verdier, Hester Williams Catakaw, Beatrice Love, Charles Ivy, Allen Ivy, Roselyn Ivy, Evelyn Ivy Walls, Jane Ivy, Joe Ivy James Ivy, Chester Ivy, Harriet Yancy, Rev.

Arrangements for home-going services are scheduled for December 28, 2016 at Mount Tubman United Methodist Church, Tubman Town. Aunt Cia will be laid to rest with her parents and siblings in East Harper. We will cherish her memories, always!
