Dorcas Winborne Williams peacefully passed on November 22, 2018, after a lengthy illness. Dorcas, lovingly known as “Aunt Don,” “Ma Puddin,” and “Big Up,” was the youngest of five children born in Gatesville, NC. She was the daughter of Benjamin and Ovene Winborne. At an early age, her mother relocated to Norfolk, VA. Dorcas was employed as a Food Service Supervisor at Oceana Naval Base. She retired after over 30 years of service.
Dorcas enjoyed reminiscing about her childhood and spending time with her family. Her favorite TV shows were: Wresting, Family Feud, and Walker, Texas Ranger.
She was predeceased by her parents; her husband, Alfred B. Williams, Jr.: her siblings, Leon, David, and Bennie Winborne, Nana L. Townes, and Theresa Amaker; and one great granddaughter, Allyson Spellman.
Dorcas leaves to cherish her memory, three daughters; Joy Slight, Shelby Rozzell, and Josette Sarden; four grandchildren: Sharvel Spellman (Bernard), Delicia Boakye (Victor), Bryan Hurdle (Candace), and Steve Rozzell; seven great grandchildren, Ashley, Alexis, Tiyonna, Xzavia, Jaylen, Morgan, and Victoria; one great-great grandchild: Kaiden; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
Dorcas’s presence is irreplaceable, and she will truly be missed.
