Obituary

There's a name above all others,
Wonderful to hear, bringing hope and cheer.
It's the lovely name of Jesus,
Evermore the same, what a lovely name.

Mrs. Carrie Bell “Gig” Williams Ramsey, daughter of the late Clifford Williams and Eula Hayden Adams was born in Commerce, Georgia, on June 7, 1926. She went home to be with the Lord on November 3, 2019, at Gordon Hospice House following an extended illness. She was married to George Ramsey, who preceded her in death. In addition to her husband, she was also preceded in death by her step-father, James Adams; five sons, Freddie “Buddy” Williams, Willie “Paul” Williams, Rufus Ramsey, George “Ham” Ramsey and John Nathan Ramsey; one sister, Lucille Rucker; grandchildren, Lanisha Ikard, Allen Summers, Roderick “Roddy” Davis and Willie Williams, Jr; nephews, Richard Rucker and Robert Gordie; and a niece, Bernice Harris.
