Marian Virginia Williams West, 89, entered into her heavenly home and into the arms of her Savior on Aug. 25, 2019.

She was born on Dec. 6, 1929, the first of three children of Clarence and Hazel Williams of Maundy’s Creek. Marian often shared happy memories of growing up in Guinea and attending school with many longtime friends.   She was a member of Union Baptist Church, being baptized on July 17, 2005.  

At the time of her passing, she was a resident of the Gloucester House. There she enjoyed a casual lifestyle reacquainting with old friends and making new ones. She was known for her love of sweets, especially blueberry muffins and butterscotch candy. She looked forward to sharing monthly Wednesday night suppers with loved ones.

Our heartfelt appreciation to the entire Gloucester House staff for their kind, loving and compassionate care of “Miss Marian.” You all are genuinely God’s Angels.

She is reunited in heaven with her parents, her son, Scott West, granddaughter, Theresa Jenkins, sister, Bernice Hall, and brother, Clarence Williams Jr.

She is survived by a daughter, Rosa Goff (Lane); sons, Earnest R. West Jr. and Ronnie West (Viola); grandchildren, Tina, Kimberly, Heather, Daniel, Keith, Erica, and Allison, as well as many extended family members.

A graveside service conducted by the Rev. Richard Whiteheart was held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 28, 2019, in Rosewell Memorial Garden Cemetery. The family received friends from 1-1:45 p.m. before the service at Hogg Funeral Home.

In memory of Miss Marian, contributions may be made to Union Baptist Church, Attn: Snack Pack Program, 9254 Guinea Road, Hayes, Va. 23072.
