Sister Marilyn Floyd was born on March 10, 1943, in Hampton County, South Carolina, to the late Mr. Jeffery Williams, Sr., and Mrs. Helen Lee Lightsey Williams. She was educated in the Hampton County public school system.
As it was often phrased “a dog is a man’s best friend” and this applied to our mother and sister, Marilyn. She had a passion for dogs; where everyone’s dog, was her dog.
Marilyn spent most of her adult life in Walterboro, South Carolina. She was married to the late Mr. James “Slim” Floyd and to this union they were blessed with two children, Timothy and Jackie. Marilyn is preceded in death by her parents, three brothers: Johnny Williams, Dwight Williams and Jeffery Williams, Jr.
Marilyn gained her wings after battling many lengthy illnesses. God saw she was getting tired and a cure was not to be. He wrapped her in his loving arms on Tuesday, September 8, 2020, at the Hampton Regional Medical Center in Varnville, South Carolina and whispered, come to me.
Take your rest our dear Marilyn. We Love You, but God Loves You Best.
