Sheila Jean Williams age 69 went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on December 18, 2020 at her home surrounded by family after a long and courageous battle with colon cancer. She was born September 26, 1951 to a coal miner Ambrose Elbert Bentch and a houser for strangers Trilbia Nola Bentch. She was a graduate of Westran High School in 1969. She was united in marriage to Charles Wayne Williams on July 24, 1971. She graduated from MACC in 1991 as an LPN and served her community in the medical field for 43 years. She loved her family and friends more than anything and cheated death on multiple occasions to stay her on earth with her children and grandchildren. She didn’t want to leave them even though she knew heaven has a beautiful place with gardens and flowers more vibrant than anyone could imagine and she would often testify of this after her near death experience in 2019. She is known and loved by many as Momma Sheila for her love and support of many that she worked with and children that found a second home and refuge in her house. Sheila was an avid gardener and people would often tell her that she could grow anything. She would always give credit to God for her beautiful garden. Sheila was a writer and enjoyed writing poetry. Her main subject was the love for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and hoped one day her writing would help others know her Saviour. Sheila is preceded in death by her parents, her brother Thomas Bentch, her sister Carol Spaid, and infant brother Stephen Bentch. She is survived by her husband, Charles Williams of the home, Nola Moore and husband Alan of Jacksonville, MO; Jennifer Campbell and husband Chris of Moberly, MO; Aaron Williams of Higbee, MO, Jason Williams and wife Suzanne of Higbee, MO; grandchildren: Eric Moore, Christopher Campbell, Meredith Campbell, Julian Campbell, August Campbell, Serinidy Williams, Jedidiah Williams, Josiah Williams, Silas Willams and Judah Willams, brother Jimmy Bentch and wife Susie of Moberly, MO, and sister Marilyn Hancock of Jacksonville, MO., along with many nieces and nephews, friends and informally adopted youth. She will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God, and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new; and he said unto me, Write; for these words are true and faithful. Revelation 21:3-5. Celebration of Sheila’s life will be held on January 2, 2021 at 2 PM at Sweet Springs Baptist Church. Million Taylor Funeral Homes in charge of arrangements.
