Welcome to Williams Funeral Home

Evelyn Sanders McLeod, 95, the daughter of the late Edward Sanders and Helen Young-Sanders was called to eternal rest on the evening of November 6, 2023, at her home in Rembert, South Carolina surrounded by family & friends. She was born on September 26, 1928, in Sumter, South Carolina. Evelyn’s faith journey took her from Mt Pisgah Baptist Church to Mt. Sinai Holiness Temple on to New Beginning Outreach Ministry where she was a faithful member until her passing. In her younger years, Evelyn would even walk to church just to be in the presence of the Lord. Evelyn enjoyed her early morning cup of coffee, cleaning, flowers, gardening, cooking for her family, and good old time gospel music. She leaves to cherish her memories: two sons, Melvin McLeod (Lisa), and John McLeod (Janet) of Rembert, SC; three daughters, Jessie Hunter, Lula Mae McLeod, and Delores Mickens, all of Rembert, SC; a very special granddaughter, Jacinta Alston (Delvin), of Sumter, SC; a very special great grandson, Jaden Alston, of Sumter, SC who was reared in the home, seventeen grandchildren, twenty seven great grandchildren, seven great great grandchildren, and a host of other relatives, cousins, nephews, nieces, & friends. In addition to her father & mother, she was preceded in death by her spouse, Davis McLeod, all seven of her siblings; her son Francis McLeod; and two daughters Genell Wheatley and Susan Voss. Evelyn Sanders McLeod loved and feared the Lord and was the matriarch of her family. She helped rear many of her grandchildren and her presence and sweet spirit will truly be missed by all who knew her. In accordance with the COVID-19 guideline precautions, the family is requesting face masks and social distancing be observed by relatives and friends during visitation at the home. The Home Going Celebration service will be held at 2:00 pm on Sunday, November 12th, 2023 at New Beginning Outreach Ministry, 4660 Thomas Sumter Highway Dalzell, SC.
