Anita G. Williams


Anita Williams passed on February 21, 2022.

She was born April 10, 1930 to Joe and Murrell Gulledge of Raeford, NC.

Anita had a good childhood with her younger brother, Buddy and younger sister, Sue. She attended East Carolina Teachers College and after graduating, married Thomas (Buck) Wilson. They reared their four children around the world as Buck was an active-duty pilot in the USAF. After his sudden death, Anita married Abb Williams, who was also widowed.

Anita is survived by her children, Tom Wilson (Melanie) of Houston, Susan Cutucache (George), Betsy DeWitt (Alan) and Joel Wilson (Elise) who all reside in Wilmington. Anita’s children blessed her with nine grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.

Although our mom will be greatly missed, we celebrate her life knowing she has passed on to her eternal home. We would like to thank all the nurses and staff at Autumn Care of Myrtle Grove, who provided compassionate care throughout her residence.

    I met Anita about 25 years ago. She came into my shop on Carolina Beach Road and we hit it off immediately. It was a treat and we always had lots of laughs. Such a cherished blessing.

    Nita was the most delightful member of the finest family I could have married into. She was my sister in law. I loved her dearly and even though I live in Texas I miss her already.

    Anita was the sweetest, kindest and most generous lady I have ever met! She “didn’t just fall off the turnip truck” as she used to say. She had class. She was cosmopolitan; raised her family all over the world (Libya, Morocco, UK, CONUS). She definitely enjoyed life. She would often spend a month with us during our military time (Oahu, Kauai, Texas and California). We enjoyed every minute of her visits. During 1 of her visits to Kauai, we went 4 Wheelin’ in a 1970 K5 convertible Blazer (Da Beast) on the beach at Barking Sands. We suddenly hit a bump , nearly ejected Anita out of the truck and got a flat tire. We all laughed so hard! We have so many great fun stories! She had knack for showing up when we really needed her during unforeseen critical circumstances (premature babies). Don’t know how we could’ve made it without her… It’s kinda hard without her now…

    My grandma was my cheerleader, a very supportive person who always rooted for me, and reminded me to never quit. Grandma's house was like my second home. She always made the best fried chicken for dinner, and we'd go to Jimbo's for breakfast in the morning. The entire staff always enjoyed seeing us. In the evenings I'd hug her goodnight and tuck her in bed lol. If I couldn't sleep, she'd sit right there beside me, massaging my legs and saying prayers (I had terrible growing pains when I was a kid). I've been through a lot of rough times within the past several years, and I'm happy to know that Grandma was always on my side. She helped me so much, even though I felt that I didn't deserve it. I miss hearing all her funny stories back when she was my age. She always seemed to have the right answers to situations in life, like choosing the right career, school, and even dating. She was the best Grandmother in the world, and I wish she didn't have to leave this world. But I'm glad she returned home to Heaven, and is finally at peace. I know she's watching over me. God certainly blessed me with a Grandmother like her. I love and miss her so much.
