Mattie attended Reid High School in Belmont, and later moved to Baltimore, Maryland. Mattie’s Christian fellowship and Christian journey included membership at Carter Memorial Church of God in Christ, Baltimore, where she served for ten years and met Mr. James Williams. Now Mrs. Williams, she moved back to Belmont, where she joined the Saint Hannah Fire Baptist Holiness Church under the pastorate of the late Mavis Charles. It was there the Lord called her to preach/minister His Word, and she received her preaching/minister’s license. In 1969, she moved to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where she joined Mt. Zion Church of God in Christ under the pastorate of the late Elder C. T. Bennett. The Lord moved upon Mattie’s heart to start a church, Fire Baptist Church, with the assistance of Pastor Bennett and the saints. The church congregated in her living room and was later moved to the Edgemont area in Harrisburg. There, she helped the late Elder and Sister Moses in their ministry, and the late Pastor Wilbert Manigault was right by her side. Mattie returned to Mt. Zion Church of God in Christ under the pastorate of Elder Reginald Frison where she remained a member. Mattie retired from the Commonwealth of PA, Department of Transportation after thirty years of service. She loved sharing the Word of God, cooking and watching the TV miniseries, “Lonesome Dove.” On Wednesday, November 25, 2020, at eighty-three years of age, the angels escorted Mattie Mae Williams into life eternal joining her parents, beloved son, Barron B.
