In Memory Of Julia (Mama Julia) Mann (née Williams)


Julia Mann was born to a loving father and mother, Charlie Sr. and Mary McCoy Williams, on January 8, 1911 in Gordon Chapel, FL. Both parents have preceded her in death.

In the sight of our Lord, she was united in Holy Matrimony to Nathaniel Mann Sr., who preceded her in death.

Nathaniel and Julia were blessed with 8 children: Evelyn Henderson ,Anne Bynes, and Nathaniel Mann Jr. who preceded her in death; Edith Hawkins, Lucille Thomas, Mary Mack, and Curtis Mann (Lucille) all of Hawthorne, Florida; Charlie Floyd Mann (Ruby) of Citra, Florida. 1 daughter-in-law: Louise Mann of Citra, Florida.

She raised 3 grandchildren: Christine Livingston, who preceded her in death, Betty Franklin, and Alvin Hamilton; and 1 great grandchild, Debra Young.

Julia Mann lived a long and prosperous life as the Lord continues to show her seed favor. She was fruitful and witnessed her seed multiply into 6 generations of love: 49 grandchildren, 123 great grandchildren, 121 great great grandchildren and 7 great great great grandchildren. What a mighty God we serve!

Julia and her siblings were a close knit family and were taught at an early age that, "God has the answer to all of life's questions." 9 of her sisters and 2 of her brothers preceded her in death. Still carrying the Williams' torch and family legacy are: Mae Etta Gordon , Mary Erma Strickland (Joseph), and Joseph Williams (Lillie), all of Hawthorne, Florida; 2 Brothers-in-Law Curtis Mann (Rossie) of Jacksonville, Florida and Ed Gordon of Hawthorne, Florida. She has many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends whom she expressed her deepest love.

Sister Julia Mann accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior at an early age and was baptized. She attended the same church all her life. She was a very faithful member of Gordon Chapel Community Church. She  loved going to church and she always included Sunday School as part of her "day at church" and if there was a night service, she would try to make that too! She loved praying and singing.

Julia Mann worked the farms in her early years. She also provided services in family homes, then later in life became a Foster Grandparent at the Hawthorne Day Care Center.

She was a mentor and positive role model both within and outside of the  community. She was affectionately known as: Mama, Mo Mo, Gran, Grandma, Grandma Julia, Mama Julia, Aunt Julia, Cousin Julia, Miss Julia and the "candy lady".

We will all miss her hugs, her loving kisses, her talks, and her stories about her life while she was on this side.

Take your rest, all is well!

Grandma it seems like just yesterday we were sitting on your porch talking about my children. You was always concerned about how they were doing in school. I am going to miss our special talks and most of all your sweet kisses on the lip. I know you are in heaven with the other angels smiling down on all of us making sure we are okay. I know that I will see you again one day and I will always cherish our time we spent together. I miss you granny and I will always love you!!!

Since I've known you, I've respected you, Since I've respected you, I've loved you. Because you are gone, I will now love your spirit. Your voice speaking to me as a child, forever rings through my soul. Seeing you so tired, I asked you to let go. I never thought you would listen to me. You always had a mind of your own, but now I am happy because you are at peace. It makes my heart soar to think you could be dancing with grandpa, dancing in the stars. Thank you...   » read more ...
