Thelma Williams Owen, age 82, went to be with her Lord on Thursday, April 27, 2017.  Born in Asheville, NC February 2, 1935 to the late Thomas Franklin Williams and Jessie Jackson Williams.  Her mother passed away when she was two years old and at the age of three she came to live with her aunt Elizabeth Williams in Marion.  After graduating from Marion High School she worked at Roses and several other places in Marion, and moved to Fayetteville, NC in 1976 where she met and married Benjamin Owen Sr. and moved to Laurinburg, NC to assist Ben with his business.  Ben passed away in 1998 and Thelma moved back to Marion to be with her family which she loved very much.  She loved to cook, bake, and crochet items for her family and friends.  Thelma grew up and attended West Marion Baptist Church where she loved to teach Sunday School.  Mrs. Owen was a member of Pleasant Gardens Baptist Church.

 

Mrs. Owen was preceded in death by her parents and husband, and her aunt that raised her and step-mother, Hassie Williams.  Also preceding her in death were four brothers, Johnnie, Eugene, Wayne, and Tommie Williams, and three sisters Louise Hart, Aileen Johnson, and Marie Williams, and a great-nephew, Colt Williams.

 

Left to cherish her memory are one brother, Archie Williams (Brenda) and one sister Linda Morgan.  Lots of nieces and nephews, especially Sue Trull, Jennie Young, Jamie Cannon, and Thomas Williams.  Special great-nieces and great-nephews Jada and Jessica Cannon, Jonathan, James and Alan Young, Shaylin, Peyton, and Graceson Williams.  One stepson, Ben Owen Jr., two step-granddaughters, and one step-great-granddaughter also survive.
