AULANDER – Patricia Lynn Williams, age 58, of Millennium, passed away on Monday, August 10, 2020 in Columbia, SC.

Lynn was born on June 15, 1962 to John Quincy and Judith Lassiter Williams in Hertford County, NC. Lynn was a devoted member of Oak Grove Baptist Church and loved her church family. She graduated from Ahoskie High School and went on to further her education at UNC Chapel Hill, where she was a proud alumnus and an avid UNC basketball fan. Lynn enjoyed going to concerts, mainly Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, working in the yard, baking cakes, and spending time with her family. She always had that infectious smile that would light up any room. She was full of life, loving everyone and everything. She had more children than anyone to have never had kids herself, however nothing could hold a candle to her nephews and her great nephew.
