Mrs. Mable Eugine Williams was born June 01, 1927, in Kingston Jamaica to the loving and strict parentage of Mr. Walter Samuel Johnson and Mrs. Helen Richardson Johnson, one of eight children. She was spoiled by her older siblings and she carried their style and sense of dress. "Aunt Mae" as she was affectionately called by her nieces and nephews was very articulate and quick to learn.
