She was born Dec. 22, 1947 in Waycross to the late Ethel Vanover Wright and James Synagogue. She received her formal education from the Waycross Public School System.
“Ms. Ann,” as she was affectionately known by many, accepted Christ as her personal Savior and was a faithful member of Faith of God Holiness Church where she served for numerous years as a choir member and working with the youth. As a mother of the church, she was active until her health began to fall.
She drove a school bus for 16 years in the Ware County School System. Every student knew she meant business when the doors opened, but also knew each time those doors opened it was always done with love and concern.
She departed this life Wednesday (Oct. 26, 2016). In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister, Doris L. Wright, for whom she cared for many years.
Those left to cherish her memory include her husband, Harrison Williams; her children, Nina Cobb, Tammy Murphy, Gerald Cobb Sr.; a sister, Barbara Bridges (Rufus); surviving sisters and brothers from Florida, Polly, Annette, Robin, Willie James, James and Ronald; a granddaughter, Anna Cobb (husband, Allen, and children, Dequan, Dontuel, Kierra), who was like a daughter; many loving grandchildren, Brandon Young (children Morgan, Bailey, Brandon), Belinda, Tieshara Breevoort (husband, David), Melzella Grant, Gerald III, Travis Cobb, Tae Tae Cobb; three special people, aunt, Corethea, aunt, Hattiemae, and cousin, Wanda Carter, who would check in on everyone; a host of cousins from Florida; two best friends, Melzella Marcus and Sharon Elmore; other relatives and friends.
She will be missed by many and in her own words, she would say, “keep praying.”
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Fluker Funeral Home.
