Obituary for Ruth Ann Williams
The family and friends of Ruth Ann Orr Williams grieve the loss of our angel here on earth, but we know she has joined the heavenly choir of angels and is praising the Savior she loves so dearly. Ruth Ann was a loving wife, mother, aunt, grandmother and great grandmother who always championed the compassion of Jesus Christ in the hearts and minds of every life she touched. She faithfully, sacrificially, and tirelessly provided love, hope and support for, not only her family, but countless people, always pointing them to the Savior. As a voice and piano teacher, school teacher and Director of Access and Visitation for the Mississippi Department of Human Services, Ruth Ann changed thousands of lives with her unconditional love and light. We miss her greatly but are reminded of her constant encouragement to “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1Thessalonians 5:16-18. Ruth Ann is survived by her husband, Liles, 4 daughters, Bennette Ash (Tommy), Julie Lampley (Randy), Angela Beise (Jim) and Amy Jones (Terry), 13 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren. She was born in Calhoun County, Mississippi, on March 7, 1936, to Neely Edmond and Amy Ether Orr and survived three siblings, Douglas, Naomi and Edmond. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests gifts in memory of Ruth Ann to French Camp Academy, One Fine Place, French Camp, MS 39745; Hinds Community College Development Foundation, P.O. Box 1100, Raymond, MS 39154; or Easter Seals Midwest, 11933 Westline Industrial Drive, St. Louis, MO 63146/www.easterseals.com/Midwest, or the charity of your choice.
A funeral service will be held at 3:00 PM Sunday, May 22, 2022 at First United Methodist Church in Clinton. Visitation will begin at the church at 1:00 p.m. Sunday. A graveside service will follow at Lakewood Memorial Park.
