Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints salute you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. II Corinthians 13:11-14
On Monday, October 29, 2012, Bobbie Jean Williams mercifully left this world of time to live forever in eternity. Her sweet strong spirit will be missed by many. Her passing reminds us that life is uncertain, but death is sure.
Bobbie began her earthly journey on September 11, 1930, in Camden, Arkansas. She was the daughter of Elijah and Carrie Meekins Goodwin.
She was a homemaker and a member of Shiloh Baptist Church in Camden, Arkansas.
Bobbie was affectionately known as “Robbie” by her family and dearest friends.
She possessed an infectious smile that would chase the chill from any room. She lived life to the fullest, and there was never a dull moment when she was around. To know “Robbie” was to love her. She had a quiet sense of humor and was known to “tell it like it is”.
She was preceded in death by her parents, one daughter Jimmie Faye Goodwin Newborn and one brother Herbert Goodwin.
Because love is greater than death; her love will live in the hearts of her daughter: Mary (Freddie) Buckley of Arkadelphia; two sisters, Jimmie Hankins of Detroit, MI, Jessie Sterling of Detroit, MI; two brothers, J. C. (Mary) Goodwin of Little Rock, and Charles and (Sandra) Goodwin of Camden. She also leaves a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
Mrs. Williams will lie in repose on Friday, November 2, 2012 from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the funeral home.
A service celebrating the life of Mrs. Williams will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in Camden, Arkansas where Rev. H. Earl Anderson is the pastor and will serve as the celebrant.
The committal service and final resting place will be in Greenwood Cemetery.
