Juanita Walton Williams, 52, of St. Marys passed away peacefully at her residence on Thursday, Sept. 17, 2015.
Born June 30, 1963, in St. Marys, she was the daughter of the late Rev. George Lee Walton and late nurse Christine Walton of St. Marys. She was the third of eight children. She was married to Edward Williams and mother to her beloved son, Little Eddie Williams. She loved Little Eddie’s beautiful smile, eyes and lashes and those cute dimples and those cheeks.
Juanita confessed a hope in Christ at an early age and was baptized in Jesus’ name at an early age and re-dedicated her life in 1993 when she was 30 years old. She was a faithful member of the church. She devoted her time doing the work of the Lord. Juanita’s life was truly a reflection of her personal relationship with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Even during her illness, you could find her ministering the word of God to family and friends.
Juanita, who was always a caring, giving and passionate person, worked as a nurse at the senior care service in Brunswick. She later followed her dreams and received a Bachelor of Science in sociology where she graduated magna cum laude, once again showing her passion to help people. Juanita was not only an excellent nurse and stellar student but also an accomplished artist. Her work has been hung in several prominent places.
Juanita is survived by her elder and most beloved brother, George Lee Walton, Robert Meredith “Cat Head” Walton; her sister, Elaine Walton; her brothers, David Christopher Walton, Michael Terrence “Timmy” Walton, Darrell Nathaniel “Blimp” Walton and Phillip “Chauchie” Walton.
Juanita is also survived by her nieces, Sydney Elizabeth Walton, Jessica Lassiter-Walton, Katie Wannamaker, Ashley Spivey, Meghan Walton, Michael Walton and Christine Walton. She also leaves behind her sisters-in-laws, Kelly Walton, Danielle Walton and Nicole Walton and her cousin Leslie Richardson Morice and her daughter, Sierra Richardson and son, Omar Richardson.
She leaves behind extended family and friends who loved her and enjoyed her funny way of telling stories and seeing the word.
Juanita was predeceased in death by her sisters, Mamie Walton, Amy Walton and Christine “Booboo” Walton.
