Eunice Faye (Williams) Hines passed away Tuesday, August 27, 2013, at Magnolia Regional Medical Center. She was born July 14, 1933, in Columbia County to Franklin and Hazel (Morris) Williams.

Eunice was a server and giver all of her life. Not just for family but through the various jobs she held throughout her life before finally retiring as a nurse’s aide. She sacrificed and did without to give to her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and any other person she thought needed help in any way through the years. She had a huge heart of love, God’s grace, and compassion for others. Eunice always looked forward to attending the music ministry each week at Wentworth Place. Eunice was one of those special ladies who was well liked by all who came to know her.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents; parents; husband, Truman Hines; and one brother, Gene Williams.
