Swayzie Williams

Swayzie Michelle Williams, 6, passed away on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 at Baptist Memorial Hospital Golden Triangle. She was born on July 28, 2014 in New Albany to Amber Tarry Wade and B.J. Williams. Swayzie was adored by all who were around her and her contagious, sweet, and innocent smile could brighten any day. She never complained about anything and although she never spoke a word, she could effectively communicate with anyone. She never could keep her fingers out of her mouth but would long enough to get a accept a kiss. Swayzie was a princess in every way and loved to watch anything Disney. She loved her grandfather, loved to cuddle, spend time outside, and playing with her cousins. Swayzie was happiness and liked to spend time around other children. She was a recent graduate of the T.K. Martin Center at Mississippi State University where she had close friends, Emma, Willow, Alyssa, Hunter, and Ellie. Her impact on this world was unparalleled and only Heaven knows how much she loved and how much she was loved by others.

I was one of Swayzie Mae's teachers at PediaTrust. Every single day I could count her to roll into the room with a big smile. I'm going to miss brushing her hair every day and watching Mickey and Minnie Mouse all day long. Rest well my sweet angel!!
