Mattie L (Williams) Sain
September 27, 1935 ~ July 30, 2020 (age 84)

Mattie Lue Williams was born to the late James I. Williams and Mattie Bell Woods-Williams on September 27, 1935. She had 1 sister, Hlen, 1 grandson, Corey E. and 1 brother, James A. Williams that preceded her in death.

She received her education from the Hardeman County School system, in which she was very skilled in Math. 

On May 18, 1952, Mattie was united in holy matrimony to Wendell Holmes Sain. To this union, 2 children were born; Deborah Faye and Wendell Kernell.

Mattie accepted Christ as her Saviour at a very young age, under the leadership of the late Tommie McTizic, Founder and Pastor of Zion Temple Holiness Church, now known as Zion Temple Worship Center COGIC. She remained faithful under the late Lazarus Lake and her faithfulness continued under her current Pastor, her son, Eld. wendell K. Sain.

Mattie was a very hard worker. She worked various jobs to help support her family. She was employed at Brint's Hospital Laundry Dept., until she retired and began supporting her husband, in care of her mother-in-law, Caldonia Sain. She also took care of many nieces and nephews while her siblings worked. She did laundry, cooked and cleaned for several elderly neighbors and ailing family members. She was faithful and dedicated to the church as well as in her home. Some of the positions she held were Program Coordinator, of what was then, TN East Jurisdiction and Chairlady of Bolivar District. She was appointed President of the State Prayer and Bible Band Dept., under the late Bishop W.L. Porter of TN Central Ecclessiastical Jurisdiction. At her local church, she was once janitor, the Church Mother, Bible Band President & YPWW teacher. Whatever her hands found to do, she was found faithful in doing so. She LOVED reading the Word of Go and she read with great power and conviction.

Mother Sain leaves to cherish her loving memories; her daughter, Deborah Faye (U.L.) Woods, her son, Wendell Kernell (Marcella) Sain, 2 sisters; Azie Lee McTizic and Hester (Paul) Reaves, 1 sister-in-love, Dorothy Williams and 1 aunt, Ocie Williams, 4 grandchildren, Kelvin (Melissa), Anessa, Alisa, and Alunna, 3 great grandchildren; Corey, Logan and Langston Woods, 2 special cousins; Elouise Fentress & Odessa Shaw, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
