Mother Modean Williams was born the seventh sister of fourteen children to the late
Isaac and Cynthia Canady. She was quite proud of this fact with seven being God’s
number of completion.
Modean received her early education in Hattiesville, Arkansas. She accepted Christ
at an early age and united with the New Prospect Baptist Church (Cleveland, AR).
During her youth, Modean suffered a back injury and it was then that her father,
Isaac, suggested she stay within the home to help her mother, Cynthia, thus
preparing her for her ultimate role as… Caregiver.
She was united in holy matrimony to George Williams, Sr. and to this union she
became the proud mother to Ricky O’Neal and George “Toosie” Williams. She
worked at the Royal Shirt Company and B&G Maintenance until her retirement.
Modean was everything a true woman of God could be. She was a mother, sister,
friend, nurse, culinary expert, helper, therapist, confidant and much more. Her home
was always known to be filled with love.
She was fond of her brothers and sisters: Dezzie Byers, Doney Rainey, Elbert
Canady, Elnora McCluney, Stella Jones, Louis Canady, Louise Campbell, Benjamin
Canady, and Gertha Langford; all of whom preceded her in death. Cherishing her
memories will be her sisters: Reola McFall (Benton Harbor, MI), Irene Canady,
(Kansas City, MO) Artiller Caldwell (Little Rock, AR), and Dovie “RQ” Blackmon
(Wichita, KS); two devoted sons: Ricky Williams (Annette) and George Williams,
Jr. (Carla); an intimate gathering of grandchildren: G. Brandon Williams III (Stacia),
Gete Williams, Genel Williams, Jessikha Williams, and Rachelle Williams; precious
legacies: Anastasia Wright, Geordan Williams, Brooklyn Mosley, Gabrielle
Williams and Laiah Mosley as well as a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends
who will forever cherish and love her.
