Obituary for Mildred Williams (Postell)

Mildred Postell Williams, 89 was born on December 8,1929 in Jacksonville, Florida to the late James and Theresa Wilson Postell. Mildred was the third of six children. She was educated in the Duval County Public School System and graduated from Old Stanton High, Class of 1948. Mildred married the late Felton Williams on April 22, 1950 and from that union they raised six children.

Mildred gave her life to Christ at the age of 12. She remained a faithful and devoted servant at Asbury United Methodist Church, fortifying her love of the Lord as a member of the Senior Choir and by serving as Sunday School Superintendent for 35 years. She later joined Open Arms Christian Fellowship Church. Her dedication to serving the Lord reached beyond the walls of the church. She was a pillar in the Robinson Addition Westside community. Her commitment to helping others is well noted by her desire to feed and clothe those who were needy in her neighborhood and community. Mildred loved to cook, sew, dance, sing, play cards, tell jokes and write poems. Most of all she enjoyed loving and taking care of her family.

Mildred has imprinted, impressed upon, and left an indelible mark in the lives of her family, friends and all those who have crossed her path. She was a woman of integrity, genuine, tough, but fair, loving, understanding, encouraging, courageous and compassionate. In addition to her loving, giving spirit, she fervently fostered “her Love for the Lord, service to others and the Love of Family” by instilling these values among others in the hearts of her children.

Mildred departed this life February 24, 2019. She was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Thomasena Postell Williams.

Mildred leaves to mourn and cherish her memories: her children, Dexter Williams, Cheryle Roman (Albert), Jennifer Bradley, Mark Williams (Clarice), Karen Williams and Jenita Williams; brother, James Postell; sisters, Verlee McCormick, Hattie Taylor and Doris Williams; brother-in-law, William James Williams; 12 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and a host of sorrowing nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends and her caregiver, Ashley Crews.

The Carter Family

Our heartfelt condolences for your loss! Please find comfort in knowing that God hates death. He views it as an annoying enemy for it was never part of his original purpose for mankind. (Genesis 1:28; 1 Corinthians 15:26) He has a longing to conquer that enemy and undo death by means of the resurrection. He promises to bring Ms. Mildred back to life and see her live on earth again. (Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:29) Eternal life under perfect conditions is how God's purpose for Ms. Mildred will be fulfilled! (John 3:16)
