Mrs. Pamela Carnes Williams, age 76, of Cana, passed away Friday, February 21, 2020, at the Woltz Hospice Home. Mrs. Williams was born in Jacksonville, FL on November 25, 1943, to Durham Elder and Marguerite Wortham Carnes. She used her master’s degree in her career as Librarian at Sand Hill Regional Library. She faithfully attended Cana Baptist Church for many years. Mrs. Williams was a loving mother, grandmother, and dear friend who will be sorely missed. One of her favorite pastimes was attending activities at Cana Golden Agers where she made so many friends. Among the many who will always cherish her memory are daughters and sons-in-law, Paige and Daniel Combs, Kate and James Rue; a daughter-in-law, Emily Williams; grandchildren, Elizabeth Combs, Wyeth Williams, Hannah Rue, Lenora Williams and Olivia Combs; a very special cousin who was more like a brother, Worth Mitchell and her extended family at Cana Adult Home where she lived. In addition to her parents, Mrs. Williams was preceded in death by her husband, James Williams, Jr.; a son, Ben Williams; and a granddaughter, Adrianne Combs. A memorial service was held at 5:00 PM, Sunday, February 23, 2020, at Cana Baptist Church by Rev. Russell Vass. The family received friends at the church one hour prior to the service. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to The American Cancer Society, 500 E.
