Alice Janet Leticia Williams
November 17, 1941 ~ July 3, 2023 (age 81) 81 Years Old
God called home a humble and faithful servant, and a loving mother and grandmother. Miss Alice Janet Leticia Williams was born in Freetown, Sierra Leone, on November 17, 1941. Following her services to God and mankind, she passed peacefully on July 3, 2023, in Texas, United States. She was 81.
Miss Williams committed her life to future generations. And so for many years, in her native Sierra Leone, she led a troupe of girls while serving as Commissioner with the Sierra Leone Girls Guide Association. While away, her passion and love for children found a home in Texas, where she contributed to preparing future generations of this country. For 25 years, as a licensed educator, she taught, nurtured, and served students at the faith-based Hamilton Park UMC Learning Center. Ever playful and loving with her students yet committed to their learning, she cultivated a culture and atmosphere of love and peace in her classroom, where she was fondly regarded as “Miss Williams.”
An avowed Christian and woman of unwavering faith throughout her life, she embodied the virtues and values of the holy scriptures. With unyielding faith in God and an ever-warm smile, her life was defined by compassion, humility, and peace. Such were the pillars of her contributions in strengthening and serving faith communities, including United Church Women, Ladies Working Band, Holy Trinity Church in Freetown, Sisters of Sierra Leone in Texas, and the Faith United Methodist Church Chancel Choir of which she was also a staunch member. Miss Williams also faithfully served her country while employed as a civil servant.
She was preceded in death by her parents. One of eight children, she is survived by her sisters, Irene Herman-Smith and Laura Gibson of Freetown. She raised six children - Michael, Muriel, Emile, Samuel, Ebun, and Millicent; 13 grandchildren - Solana, Ruth, Eliana, Samuela, Mariza, Isaiah, Olayinka, Blessing, Andre, Folashade, Matthew, Emilia, and Samuel Jr.; and two great-grandchildren, Liana and Gavin. As she rests in eternal peace, she will be forever loved by a host of relatives and friends across the United States, in Sierra Leone, and around the world.
