Williams, Eva, born December 28, 1929 in Irving, North Carolina was one of four children born to James
and Hester McNeill. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Nathaniel Williams and
youngest son Craig Williams.
Eva came to Middletown in 1952, after she married Nathanial (Nate) Williams, while stationed in Fort
Bragg, North Carolina. After his discharge from the military, he returned to Middletown where they
would make this their home. To this union, four sons were born.
During her later years with her husband, she was a compassionate, loving wife and caregiver until his
death. She was a devoted homemaker, mother, and grandmother who took pride in caring for her
children and grandchildren. She often participated as a team mother for their many sports activities, as
well as cheered them on as their biggest fan. Eva was a caring and giving friend to others, and she
enjoyed cooking and feeding anyone who happened to stop by. She worked as a homecare assistant for
Careview Home Health where she devoted herself to caring to others.
Eva, or affectionately known as Momma or Grand mommy to her children, and Ma ‘dear to others, will
best be remembered for her savvy, sophisticated shopping style, and her fried-chicken dinners on
Sunday afternoon. Yes, she was a very outspoken woman with a quick wit to tell you like it was… “open
the door and I will get it myself.”
Eva leaves to cherish her memories sons, Nathanial “Bernies” (Mona) Williams, Derrick Williams,
Kenneth Williams, and Kenneth Odell Williams. Grandchildren: Anthony Williams, Darrin Lee, Craig D.
Williams, Derrick L. Williams, Germaine Williams, Courtney Williams, and Kenza Williams; along with a
host of great-grandchildren, Godchildren, family and friends. Special thanks to friend Mildred Gaston
who remained by her side until she passed in 2016.
