Annierea V. Williams
Annierea Vanover Williams, 68, known as “Ms. Ann,” passed away Wednesday (Oct. 26, 2016).
She is survived by her husband, Harrison Williams.
She is the daughter of the late Ethel Vanover Wright and James Synagogue. She was preceded in death by her sister, Doris L. Wright, whom she cared for many years.
“Ms. Ann,” as many called her drove the school bus for 16 years in the Ware County School System. Every student knew she meant business when the doors opened, but they also knew each time those doors opened, it was always done in love.
She spent numerous years serving at the Faith of God Church in the choir and working with youth. As a mother of the church, she was active until her health began to fail.
She leaves many to cherish her memories, daughter, Nina Cobb, Tammy Murphy and Gerald Cobb Sr.; a sister, Barbara Bridges (Rufus), of Albany; other sisters and brothers from Florida, Polly, Annette, Robin, Willie James, James and Ronald; a granddaughter, Anna Cobb (husband, Allen and children, Dequan, Dontanuel, Kierra), who was like a daughter; many loving grandchildren, Brandon Young (Morgan, Bailey, Brandon) and Belinda, Drill Sergeant Terrell J. Murphy Jr. (Miyun, Jaeyun), Tiffany V. Murphy, Tieshara Breevoort (husband, David), Melzella Grant, Gerald Cobb III, Travis Cobb, TaeTae Cobb; a host of cousins from Florida and three special people, aunt Corethea, aunt Hattiemae and Wanda Carter, who would check in on everybody.
She was always grateful for her two best friends, Melzella Marcus and Sharon Elmore.
She will be missed by many and in her own words, she would say, “keep praying.”
The family will receive friends at 610 Crescent St.
The funeral will be held Friday at Faith of God Church, 1509 Louisiana Ave., at 11 a.m.
