Ms. Laura McPhail Williams, 96 went to be with the Lord on Friday, July 23, 2021 at Kitty Askins Hospice Center in Goldsboro.

Mrs. Williams was a native of Sampson County, the daughter of Marcellus and Vira Parker McPhail. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Dr. Harry R. Williams; daughter, Muriel Williams Callahan; brothers, Gordon McPhail and Joe Duncan McPhail; and sisters, Lena Amunrud, Joyce Irish, Clara Hussey and Marybelle McPhail.
She loved the Lord, her family, church family, friends and life. Years ago she said, "I realize that I will never have any grandchildren, but I love all of my "grandpoodles" dearly. The love they had for her was immense. Animals can easily recognize a loving sweet soul. Her fight for life was so strong until the Lord decided it was time for her to be with Him.
She is survived by her daughter, Marcella Williams; brother-in-law, Bill Irish; cousin, Edna McPhail Siganos; and numerous nieces and nephews.
