In an email received from a family member on September 12, 2020 it was written:

Aunt Mildred was originally buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Kershaw County as the newspaper’s obituary indicated. She was later exhumed and moved to Quaker Cemetery in Camden.  I’m sure Forest Lawn can confirm this for you. Unfortunately, I was there for both so I was a witness to the transfer. – Thanks! – Teresa Williams

The following was written on the Find A Grave memorial site:

If ever there was a lady that radiated love — it was my precious Aunt Mildred Williams. She had a house full children, Robert Edward, Betty Joann, Linda Faye, Mary Jane, Brenda Kay, Bobby Joe and Billy Joe….and of course Esther Louise who had move away. She loved her children. She loved all children. I remember as a young girl going to her home and eating chocolate bread pudding. She knew it was my favorite recipe of hers and every time I came and she had some — she fixed me a big bowl and handed it to me with a smile. I was thrilled when she and Uncle Robert moved to Camden. I loved being in her presence, just hanging around her. My mother (Alice Williams) came to love her as a sister. It wasn’t long after she arrived in Camden that she started attending the Camden First Church of the Nazarene on McCrae Road. She joined the church and would stand up to give a testimony of God’s saving her and being so wonderful to her. She would always end her testimony with a request for everyone to pray for God to save her husband and children. When she became sick and evidently died after a battle with cancer a light on this earth went out and a part of me died with her. As a middle schooler I just couldn’t understand why God would take such a precious lady away from her children and us. One of the songs she requested at her funeral though was “I’ll see you in the Rapture” — the youth choir sang it for her because that is what she wanted – she always loved to hear the youth choir sing. I’m so glad to know that one day I am going to see her again and I’m looking forward to it. The next time though – she won’t be sick and death won’t be able to touch her! Besides her children she was survived by her husband, Robert Oliver Williams, and her mother.
