Caldonia Williams (affectionately known as Callie) was born March 22, 1926 to the late James & Susie Anthony Williams. She attended the rural schools of Baker County, Georgia.
Caldonia was a member of Notchaway C.M.E. Church for many years and later became a member of Donalsonville Holiness Deliverance Church (Overseer Diann Kelley, Pastor) which is under the umbrella of Evangelical Faith Vision Ministries, Inc. (Sr. Pastor Apostle Felix & First Lady Andrea Revills) where she served faithfully until death.
She was united in holy matrimony to the late O.C. Kelly, and to this union 11 children were born.
Caldonia was a very loving and compassionate woman. She loved people and would take you anywhere you wanted to go as long as it was not farther than Colquitt! She left a lasting effect on everyone she met. However, if you were looking for someone to "sugar coat" the truth when asked, then you had the wrong one, because she told it just like it was! This too was done in such a way that all you could do was say OK and just love her for it! She will surely be missed.
We thank God for sharing this ‘Beautiful-Classy Lady’ with us for as long as He did, and for that we are forever grateful.
Caldonia departed this life on Tuesday, February 9, 2021. She was preceded in death by her parents, James and Susie Anthony Williams; her husband, O.C.
