Birthell Chisolm Williams
Mother Williams’ Life Story
On Thursday, November 11, 2010 at 7:30 p.m. the angels of silence came into Oak Hill Regional Hospital and with loving fingers sealed the lips of Birthell Chisolm Williams.
Birthell was born in Allendale, South Carolina on March 26, 1926 to the late Jake and Malcie Chisolm. She was preceded in death by her husband, Jessie Williams, Jr., son, Bruce Williams, six brothers and four sisters.
Upon her relocation to Brooksville, Birthell joined Allen Temple A.M.E. Church were she served with willingness, diligence, and faithfulness for 64 years. She was a Stewardess, President of the Senior Choir, and a member of Queen Elizabeth Chapter 122 Eastern Star.
Birthell touched many lives throughout the community with her kind heart and was well known for her excellent cooking abilities. Everyone was always warmly welcomed and one could never leave her house unfed. Family was very important to Birthell. She loved her family with all her being and was happiest when all were gathered together in fellowship. Birthell was beloved by all, and will be sorely missed.
She leaves to mourn her passing: three devoted and loving children, Johnny Williams (Eula), Evelyn Washington and Frank Williams (Maryland) of Brooksville, FL; one devoted grandson that she raised as her own son, Frankie Williams (Danielle) of Brooksville, FL; one sister-in-law, Maggie Chisolm of Jacksonville, FL; two sisters, Louise Johnson of Jersey City, NJ and Hattie “Pearl’ Meyers of Philadelphia, PA; one brother, Marion Chisolm (Elizabeth) of Jersey City, NJ; twelve grandchildren, Tony Brackins (Shannon) of Clermont, FL, Natalie Baylor (Mikeral) of Clarksville, TN, Johnny Brackins of Less Summit, MO, Janet Swackard (David) of Sugar Hill, GA, Tyrone Hawkins of Port Richey, FL, Eric Adams (Tiffany), Audrey Williams, Brain Williams, Myron Summerlin, Preston Williams, and Jakara Williams of Brooksville, FL; twenty-five great-grandchildren; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and sorrowing friends.
