Mrs. Carolyn Jackson Williams-Pinckney was born March 14, 1955 in Columbia, South Carolina. She was the daughter of the late Arthur and Mary Ellen Jackson. She departed her life on June 16, 2017 at Providence Hospital in Columbia.

Mrs. Williams-Pinckney, affectionately known as Pig, attended A.C. Flora High School and later graduated from the Medical Training Center with a Nursing Assistant certificate. 

In addition to working at Granby Mills for over 10 years, she enjoyed helping others by serving as a private duty nurse.

Following her mother’s lead, she became a dedicated member of Saint John Baptist Church. At Saint John, she was a member of the Bailey/Green/Hingleton/Brown Family Ministry Unit.

Mrs. Williams-Pinckney loved her boys and took an active role in their lives. She loved to support them and the Valley Park Recreational Little League Baseball Program.
