September 4, 1914 - October 30, 2019
Annie Mae Williams City, fondly known as Mother, passed away on Wednesday, October 30th at Brackenridge Hospital, Austin, TX at the age of 105. Annie Mae was born in Smithville, TX, on September 4, 1914 to John Williams and Mabel (Johnson) Williams. Annie Mae's mother passed when she was two years old, leaving behind six children ranging in age 12 to 1. Her father remarried and as Annie became one of 18 children, she learned quickly and taught herself many of the joys of her life such as sewing and painting. Annie's parents taught their children to respect God. At a young age, she surrendered her life to Him, by joining the Baptist faith. Growing up she learned that if she was obedient, He would give her the peace and security she always wanted. Annie then joined the Alpha Seventh Day Adventist Church where she was an active member. Annie believed that we all have been given unique talents to use in the service of the Father. She wondered, "What is my talent?" She saw people who sang, played musical instruments along with many other talents. Her greatest joy was helping those who were physically disabled. Much of her life was dedicated to blessing to those in need, but she still questioned, "What is MY talent, MY real love?" During those long rides from California, she began to notice the beauty of nature, a collection of natural scenes that man had nothing to with, only God. "I saw nature, pure, raw and untouched. It looked as if God had dressed it up in its finest "Sunday" colors and blended perfectly. I finally got it! My talent was writing poems." Through the years, Annie wrote about His beautiful creations, writing numerous poems and book entitled, "Jesus & Me" Throughout Annie Mae's life she received numerous awards and recognitions most recent: 2014 Recipient of the WPJ Longevity Award; 2019-September 3rd - Declared Annie Mae City Day in Travis County, TX in honor of her 105th Birthday; October 17th - Proclamation from the City of Austin, TX recognized by the City Council Chamber. Annie Mae leaves to cherish her memory, her daughter, Minnie City (Leonard) Mann, Pflugerville, TX; two sons, Don O. (Norvella) City, Buda, TX; and Ralph A. (Ruth) City, Austin, TX; grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren; and a host of relatives and friends.
