Early Monday morning, August 29,2016, Ella McBride Williams received her eagle wings as stated in Isaiah 40:31. She was the 5th child born on February 23, 1933 to Thomas and Louella Williams in Center, Texas. 

In 1951, she married Bennie McBride and moved to Dallas, Texas. They had four beautiful daughters before his untimely death in 1959, leaving her to raise them alone. Ella worked hard to support her girls as a maid in private homes. Around 1970, she began working for Mrs. Gloria Nelson as her housekeeper. Over the years, the relationship evolved into a friendship. When she went to clean her house each Saturday, she and Mrs. Nelson ate and talked, making cleaning the house secondary. Approximately two years ago, Ella could no longer work due to her declining health. Mrs. Nelson continued to pay until her death. 

Ella accepted Christ at an early age while living in Center, Texas. After moving to Dallas, she joined New Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church in West Dallas where she and her girls served faithfully. Upon moving to Oak Cliff and later Duncanville, Ella joined Lighthouse Church Of God In Christ where she served for 36 years, until her transition. She served in many ministries; The Mother's Council, Golden Girls Choir, Children's Nursery, and Prayer Band. 

All who knew Ella knew how much she loved the Lord and her family. When she was not at church, she spent her time working crossword puzzles while watching Wheel of Fortune and Jimmy Swaggart. 

She was preceded in death by her youngest daughter, Deborah McBride, parents, Thomas & Louella Williams, two brothers, J.D. Lane and Prentice Williams. Six sisters preceded her in death; Mozell Suell, Odell Williams, Bertha Williams, Willie Palmer, Winnie Morris, and Ruby Suell. 

She is survived by:

Brothers; Thomas Williams(Vera), Sammy Williams, James Williams(Bobbie), Riley Williams(Michelle), Robert Williams, and Kenneth Williams 
Brother-in-law, Odie Suell
