Lucille A. Williams was born in Lillington to the late Jasper Armstrong and Henrietta Armstrong on April 16, 1939. She went to school at Margaret Washington Vocational High School. She married Willard Williams in Washington, D.C. Lucille is preceded in death by her parents and brother, Jeremiah Armstrong Sr.
Lucille had multiple areas of interest but was loved by all for her service to others and selling Mary Kay. Lucille was an entrepreneur and a server of her community. She served in various leadership roles at church with the Usher Board, Senior Choir and Mission Board, and was a devoted member of Lillington Grove Freewill Baptist Church. Lucille was very proud of being The Church Homecoming Queen for multiple years.
Lucille is survived by two sons, Ronald Williams (Laura Williams) of Bellingham, Washington, and Maurice Williams of Orlando, Florida; two brothers, Jasper Armstrong Jr. and Neill Armstrong (Joseline Armstrong), both of Washington, D.C.; and a sister-in-love, Ann Graham. Lucille has a host of grandchildren and great-grandchildren as well as many nieces and nephews to whom she was much like a grandmother. She had a special cousin, Paul McKoy; a devoted godsister, Elder Geraldine McKoy; and special friends, Maxine Allen and Minister Cynthia Taylor, and Sister Christine Williams that were by her side.
At 80 years old, still full of life, Lucille was unstoppable. She was a servant of God and her community who would give her all to anyone who needed it. Always concerned with giving to others more than herself, she will be missed as a pillar of this community.
The family of Lucille Williams wishes to extend their sincere thanks to everyone who surrounded her with love and care.
