Willie Evelyn Sanders, aka “Wit”, age 69 of Denmark, South Carolina, was born on December 15, 1944 in Govan, South Carolina to the late Willie and Jeraldine Moncrief Walker.   Our Heavenly Father call her from labor to reward on December 05, 2014 at TRMC- the Regional Medical Center in Orangeburg, South Carolina.

At an early age, she joined the Greater Sweet Branch Baptist Church in Govan, South Carolina, where she served as President of the Senior Choir and Kitchen Committee, member of the Missionary Society and Floral Committee. She was a faithful member and served faithfully until the Lord called her home. 

She attended the Voorhees Public School in Denmark, South Carolina.  She worked at Bamberg Sewing Room for many years before going to work at Federal Mogul in Orangeburg, South Carolina, where she retired as a Production Line Operator.

She was married to the late Thomas Sanders for 14 years, before the Lord called him home, and to this union, God blessed them with two daughters.  

Our mother and grandmother was a wonderful, caring, and loving person who enjoyed life.  She loved having fun and making people laugh.  She was very open-minded and had no problem stating what was on her mind.  The love she had for her children and grandchildren was priceless.  She was truly one of a kind.

Three sisters, Rutha Mae Furse, Hattie Sue “Mary” Walker, and Florie Mae Walker, and one brother, Willie James Walker, preceded her in death.

I held her hand as she silently whispered her goodbye
A last breath as I watched her die
Her skin swollen-battered and bruised
By all the things that they felt they needed to use

I stroked her hair and wiped her eyes
Wanting so much for them to open and see
That I was alone there in the world

I am so sorry for your loss! I pray that God strengthens your heavy heart. Praying for you and your family.
Alone with the agony growing inside of me

I watched those around me shed their tears
And utter their words of sorrow
How could they know that I was dying inside?
I couldn't and you wouldn't - face tomorrow

One last time I kissed your face
And held your hand to touch my cheek
I wanted to carry you away from there
My fragile mother who was just too weak

I heard the people all around me
The silence of the machines now so loud
And I walked away - my heart now broken
And tried to face the waiting crowd
