“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

Her children arise up and call her blessed; her husband also and he praiseth her”.

~Proverbs 31: 10, 28 


     Maezine Harrison Williams was one of 14 children born to the parentage of the late Richard and Lizzie Harrison. She was born July 17, 1923, in Greensville County Virginia.

     At an early age, Maezine accepted Christ and united in Christian fellowship with the Claresville Baptist Church, where she served faithfully until the last few years, when illness prevented her from being actively involved.

     Maezine was educated in the Greensville County School System; completing the sixth grade. She was a homemaker and was a skilled seamstress - by trade. She sewed for many people, both locally and abroad. Many of them she never met, but the clothes she made were a perfect fit. She made choir robes for churches and prom gowns for many students. Although her education was limited, Maezine developed a strong work ethic. God blessed her with an abundance of knowledge and wisdom. Maezine ran a convenience store in Chapel Hill, where she performed all the tax reports and also completed all the paperwork for her husband’s logging business for many-many years.

     Maezine departed this earthly life at 7:06 PM on Sunday, June 12, 2022 after an extended illness. 

     Maezine married the late Warren G. Williams on August 6, 1938. This Union was blessed with the birth of eight children, Warren L. Williams (deceased), Fannie Ridley of Smithfield, Virginia, Henry Williams (Shirley) (deceased), William Williams (Wanda) of Lawrenceville, Virginia, Katherine Robinson of Emporia, Virginia, Annie Jackson of San Antonio, Texas, Ann M. Williams of Washington, DC, and Carrie L. Williams (deceased). 

     Warren and Maezine were given a blessing from a friend of the family, the late Byron ‘Bobby’ Himple.

     Another blessing came when Warren’s sister, Grace Daniel passed, and leaving, her four children, Paulette Daniels-Hicks (deceased), Malcolm Daniels (Edna) (deceased), Lynette Daniel of Washington, DC and Brian Harris (Edna) of Augusta, Georgia.

     In addition to her children, Maezine leaves to mourn her departure: 35 grandchildren, 59 great-grandchildren, 90 great, great-grandchildren; 2 great, great-great grandchildren; one sister, Lizzie Mae Sills; two sisters-in-law, Hazel Harrison and Augusta Harrison; a host of nieces and nephews, relatives and friends.
