In Loving

Martha L. “Sissy” Williams

Aug. 9, 1967 – Sept. 29, 2019

Martha L. “Sissy” Williams, 52, departed from life to be with god at her home in Bumpass, VA on September 29, 2019. She leaves behind her beloved family her three beloved children, James Huff (Weasel), Samantha Miller (Puss) and Christopher “Chris” Williams Jr; her devoted husband, Christopher “Chris” Williams Sr.; her father-in-law, Thomas “Tommy” Williams who was her best friend; her four beloved grandchildren and their mothers, Angel “Girly-girl” Huff, Carmen Luckado, Carson Williams, Kayla Loftin, Rozalynn “Rozzie” Huff, James “JJ” Huff Jr and Desiree Campbell; loving sister and brothers, Wendy Via, James Via, Eddie Huff (Danny), Amanda Huff (Suzzette), Gorden Huff; two loving sisters-in-law and their husbands, Tabitha Williams Martin, Richard Martin, and her son, Bradlee Walker, Mindy Murphy-Cosby, Marcus Cosby and cousin Linda Mitchell; and aunts Mattie Vineyard and Yvonne Coppedge.

She was so beloved by all the kids that her three children became friends with and they became her children as well. She was one of the most caring mothers that anyone could ask for even if she didn’t give birth to them herself. She worked full time in her younger years as a bar-keep at Kitty’s Place and Jessie’s on Hull Street for over 13 years until the passing of her mother when she picked up and moved to Jacksonville, NC and loved the beach. She then moved back to Richmond after her children got older. She helped raise her granddaughter Angel, who was the shining star in her life. She loved her grandchildren and their mothers dearly; she was the strength of her family and wanted them to be as close as possible to her. She held her family and friends closely and always had a place for anyone that needed her in her home. She welcomed everyone with open arms and there wasn’t a soul that didn’t cherish her that crossed her path in life. She will truly be missed by all of us.

A celebration of life will be held at her home at a later date by her family.

    Such a very nice lady I had the pleasure of meeting years ago. You will be missed dearly. And to my niece Samantha; may you find strength to get through this difficult time and keep your mother’s memories deep in your heart. Love Dearly, Auntie Linda
