The Obituary of Sherry Elaine Williams
Sherry Elaine Williams went home to be with the Lord on Monday, November 28, 2011. She was born in Mansfield, Ohio, on February 4, 1958, to Lonnie and Louise Eatmon. She graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications. She worked for WBNS-10TV as a floor director before taking a position with the State of Ohio’s Mental Retardation and Developmentally Disabled Department as a public relations specialist. A gifted graphics designer, Sherry opened a photography business with her husband, Charles.
As a dedicated Christian, she also used her graphic and communications skills in tireless work to Hall’s Memorial Church of God in Christ; then to Greater Jordon Temple, including its outreach program: Greater Works Ministries; and finally to the newly-founded ministry of Unity Temple Church of God in Christ. Sherry produced volumes of masterfully-crafted material for church bulletins, brochures, anniversary programs and other special events.
Sherry was a devoted servant to the ministry of Pastor Lemmie Ruth Jordon, paying special attention to her personal needs. She served as past President and Vice President of the Usher Board. She was also a missionary and mission worker, choir member, church public relations coordinator and a teacher in the Young Peoples Willing Workers (YPWW). Her lovely speaking voice blessed the church during Sunday morning announcements.
Sherry created and performed memorable Christian characters in numerous church plays, including “Ida Mae Cooper.” She was a multi-talented woman, devoted wife and mother, fiery missionary and preacher with unbridled enthusiasm in her service to the Lord.
She leaves to mourn her loss, her husband of 29 years, Charles; two children, Josiah and Abigail; her mother, Louise (Holt) Eatmon; father, Lonnie Eatmon; four brothers: Ronald, Donnie, Lonnie and Anthony Eatmon. Step-brothers and sisters: Andre, Leonard, Dorothy, Soncarray and Dan Richie; and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
