Valdoshia Williams Obituary

Valdoshia Williams was born on July 25, 1932 in Lowndes County, Alabama to the late Elliot Cosby and Ethel Hunter.  Her Heavenly Father called Val home to eternal rest on Tuesday, October 17, 2023. 

Val was a graduate of the Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Dayton, Ohio. She retired from Good Samaritan Hospital after years of service in the Dietary Department.

Val was a dedicated wife for sixty-seven years to Jimmie Williams.  She accepted Christ at a young age and was a longstanding member of the St. Luke Missionary Baptist Church for over sixty-five years.

Val treasured her personal relationship with the Lord and instilled in her daughters the importance of knowing the Lord for themselves.  She was a humble servant known for her sweet nature, always willing to lend a hand to anyone. Although quiet-natured, she never hesitated to speak up when necessary to get her point across or also challenge you to do the right thing. She could often be heard singing "On Time God".

Cooking was one of her favorite past-times. She enjoyed baking pound and caramel cakes, and was known for her splendiferous sweet potato pie and fried corn. The utmost hospitality was rendered when you entered her home where "Naomi" the duck dressed in her seasonal outfit was posted at the front door and candy was positioned meticulously on the dining room table. She was a pleasure to be around and could be counted on to share a pleasant or funny story from time to time.

Val was a "modern" woman who appreciated social grace, etiquette and fashion.  Ensembles such as handbag, hat and shoes had to match the outfit.  As well as ensuring the appropriate perfume was in sequence with the lotion fragrance. A complete package in place before exiting the house to face the public.

Val was proceeded in death by her father, Elliot Cosby, stepfather, Joseph Hunter and mother, Ethel Hunter. Val leaves to cherish her memory: her devoted husband, Jimmie Williams; daughters, Verna Paschal and Cheutaunia Johnson; grandchildren, Breland Paschal and Breauna Paschal; great grandson, Emanuel Baker; sister, Willie Mae Harris; sisters-in-law, Alberta Myles, Shirley Williams, Ada Taylor; brother-in-law, Neal Williams (Virginia), special cousin, Edna Dudley-Baldwin; and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins and dear friends.
