”Life’s Reflection”

”I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. “2 Timothy 4:7 

Mrs. Robbie Mae (Nute) Taylor Williams was born in Darlington, South Carolina to the late Lessie Taylor and the late Claussen James on August 10, 1927.  She was raised by her maternal grandparents, Robert and Bannie Taylor. She transitioned from her earthly life on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at home.   Her family and friends affectionally called her Nute, Mama Nute, or Mrs. Nute. To her nieces, she was always their Aunt Robbie.

Robbie attended the public schools of Darlington County.  

At the age of 17, she accepted Christ as her Lord  and Savior.  She joined New Providence Baptist church where she served faithfully in various capacities.  She organized the Pastor’s Aid and the Junior Missionary Board under the leadership of the late Rev. Dr. Judge Pearson.   With the joy of the Lord, she sung on the Senior Choir and presided over the Deaconess Board.  She was a member of the Order of Eastern Star Chapter 339.

One of her many gifts from God was being a servant.  She cared for many members of her family and in the community when they were ill.  Her motto was “if I can help somebody along the way, then my living is not in vain.”  So she did whatever she could do. Her life has been that of a Servant’s servant. 

She was a loving devoted mother, a loving and patient grandmother, a kind and gentle great grandmother, a loving and understanding confidant and a loving and loyal friend. 

She worked in the Darlington County School System and Florence Convalescence Center until she retired in 1987.

She married James ”Jim” Williams (deceased) and this union was blessed with eight sons.  Two sons James, Jr and Eugene preceded her.  

Those who shared the joys of life with her and survived to cherish her memory are: her sons, Mallie Williams, Sr. (Sarah, deceased) of Darlington, SC, Ernest  Williams (Vicky Newton) of White Plains, NY, Jimmy (Bobbie) Williams of Darlington, SC, Minister Barney (Natalya) Williams of Charlotte, NC, Representative Robert Q (Janice) Williams and Joseph Williams, both of Darlington, SC; twenty-four  grandchildren, sixty-one great grandchildren; four nieces: Evangelist. Dorothy McBride of Sumter, SC, Mrs. Betty Coe of Patterson, NJ, Mrs. Theresa Bess of Darlington, SC and Ms. Laney Williams of Lindenwold, NJ; Adopted children: Dianne Gandy, Kia Gandy, Venus Tisdale, Frank Ham and Maze Little; a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Visitation will be held from 5:00pm to 8:00pm daily at the residence, 1753 Lide Springs Road, Darlington. Please wear a mask while visiting the residence.
