"The greatest among you will be your servant." (Matthew 23:11).
After devoting her life to caring for others, Rebecca Ann "Becky" Williams, of Newton Grove, N.C., passed away Sunday, Aug. 28, 2016.
Those who were blessed to know Becky will remember her as having a servant's heart, one that gave freely of compassion, encouragement and kindness to all. Whatever the need, Becky gave generously of her time, talents and goodwill, carrying it far beyond her circle of family and friends.
During her 44 years as a registered nurse, Becky committed herself to giving expert care to thousands of patients. While she worked for several different hospitals, and in various areas of nursing, her passion was helping those with the greatest needs in ICU, critical care and cardiac ICU. She was always excited about the advancements in patient care and was proud to be a member of the American Association of Critical Care Nurses.
Becky was born Oct. 17, 1945, to Delbert and Betty Gentry and graduated from Aberdeen High School in Aberdeen, Md., in 1963. She then headed to Durham, N.C., to attend the challenging Watts Nursing School, going on to graduate in the Class of 1966. It was while studying in Durham that she met the love of her life, James "Ted" Williams, of Newton Grove and the two were married in Nov. of 1966. They became the parents of two children, including their son Scott who preceded Becky in death in 2004.
Becky loved spending time with family and friends, attending church, traveling and keeping a home that welcomed all. Those left to miss her warm and nurturing presence are her husband, Ted; daughter, Beth Williams (David Smith) of Watertown, N.Y.; grandson, Zachary Canter of Watertown, N.Y.; sister, Donna Gentry Morton of Cumming; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Jackie and Betty Walker of Fayetteville, N.C., Noel and Diane Ramsey of Spring Lake, N.C.; best friend, Becca Wright of Kingsport, Tenn.; close cousins, Steve and Mary Lou Gentry of Bristol, Tenn.; aunt, Mae Gentry of Laurel Bloomery, Tenn.; several nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.
