Her education was in Lowndes county and she eventually met and married a good man named Enoch Miller Jr. She was the daughter of the late Ocie Viola Wilkerson & Lorenzo “ Lee” Williams. She was a very hard working woman who could lay fiberglass on a boat better than some men! She was a fiberglass chopper gun handling woman from building boats from Well Craft, Sunbird, Bayliners and then onto even jacuzzi tubs. Her closest brother Wilkerson got her started in fiberglass and she mastered it! She never made excuses when it came to family & friends in times of need. When she liked you, you always got a smile from her. If she didn’t, she would let you know!
