Cecelia C. Williams of Camden-Wyoming entered God’s Kingdom on Wednesday, July 3rd at the St Francis Hospital in Wilmington, in the loving presence of her family, following a lengthy illness; she was 78 years old. She was born on November 22nd, 1934 in New York City in the Harlem Hospital to the Late Rauel Barboza and Lilla C. Williams.
Cecelia was a special lady, and made an impact on many lives. She was, first and foremost, a devoted and loving mother. Although, she truly blossomed when she became a grandmother; just seeing her grandchildren surrounded her with a special glow. She loved doing things with her daughter and grandchildren, and it was the time that she spent with her family that she cherished. One of her favorite things to do was to dine out with family and friends.
Cecelia also loved her job. She attended Business College in 1955 to learn Secretarial Science, and found work at Bell Telephone as an administrative assistant thereafter. Cecelia also treasured her time that she spent in church, as well as the time she spent with her friends. As a woman who liked to keep busy, Cecelia kept herself occupied. She enjoyed reading, doing crossword puzzles, knitting, crocheting, listening to assorted music, and shopping. Holidays were a special time for her, and she loved them dearly. They were when she had ample time with her beloved family and friends.
If you knew Cecelia, then you knew two things about her. First, she loved to play cards. You might catch her playing Solitaire, or pulled into a game of Rummy, but her favorite game was Spades. The other thing she loved to do was bake. A cake maker extraordinaire, she was well known to those around her as the “Cake Maker”.
She is preceded in death by her parents, and her son, Michael Raymond Williams. She is lovingly remembered by her children, listed according to age, Diallo DeAngelo Outley, and her daughter-in-law, Diane Dyer Outley, Shani Outley Thorner, and her son-in-law, John Westley Thorner IV; her four Angelic grandchildren (according to age) Dominasia Christina Aldamuy, Deangelo Steven Outley, Qorah Chamique Thorner, and Johnah Malik Thorner. She is also deeply missed by her brother, Luther Holland, Jr., her sister-in-law, Zelda Holland, her nephew, Julian Joseph Holland, her niece, Kimberly Holland, her grand-niece, Julianna Wilson Holland, her three god-daughters, a devoted friend, Albert Walter White, a host of cousins, adopted family and friends.
