January 29, 1959 – June 16, 2020
Maedene Williams Aaron, 61, of Pearl, passed away Tuesday, June 16, 2020, at Hospice Ministries, Ridgeland.
Maedene was born January 29, 1959, in Montgomery County, Mississippi, a daughter of the late Elmer Williams and Inez Palmertree Williams.
Maedene was the true epitome of the term “matriarch”. She lovingly cared for her family, for many years as a single mom, and her children grew to realize there was nothing she couldn’t accomplish. A gifted seamstress she crafted clothing for her children in their younger years, as well as created pageant dresses for contestants of competitions throughout the nation. She also enjoyed painting and ceramics, and even had her own kiln. Maedene’s home was always open to her children’s friends- she was everyone’s “Mama” and “Grandma”.
Upon hearing of her passing, many people made the same statement: “She was the strongest woman I ever met.” These words speak volumes about the character of Maedene Aaron, and her legacy of hard work and love and pride of family will live on in the hearts of all who were blessed to have known her.
She was preceded in death by her daughter, Krystal Aaron.
Survivors include children, Jonathan Aaron, Brittany Aaron, Amanda Warren, and Jamie Aaron; siblings, Ted Williams, Jennifer Mills, Audrey Williams, William Wright, Timothy Wright, and Sheila Williams; a host of grandchildren; one great-grandchild and in a beautiful nod to the circle of life, her family learned on the day Maedene went home to Heaven that a second great-grandchild will soon arrive.
Visitation will be held from 5:00pm until 7:00pm, Thursday, June 18, 2020, at Baldwin-Lee Funeral Home in Pearl. Memorial services will follow at 7:00pm in the funeral home chapel.

I don’t even know where to begin. My heart is broken. I loved you more than you could have possibly known. I don’t remember life without you in it. You showed so much love for all of us. You were such a big part of our lives when we were kids.
I hope your dancing in the Skies. I hope your singing in the angels choir.
I love you “manean”!

When God handed out older sisters I got the best.No matter what time of day I needed you were there no matter what the reason was. From talking to boobie trapping the hospital door. A strong woman with a sense of humor.I was blessed to have you for a sister. One day we will get that dance we was gonna have when you got out. I'll see you again so keep on your dancing shoes.I love you.

Maedean and I met in a strange way. I married her former husband. I know this sounds bad. Yet her and I did her divorce papers together and I fought for what she wanted. We sat together in Brandon Ms. When her brother went to jail. I went with her to her moms funeral and lended a shoulder and hand. When I came into her life I had no clue what to expect and she was very protective over her kids. I had to prove myself before she would let me in. I had many of crying episodes with her over many things on the phone or at her house. She was a wonderful woman with great advice and knowledge. She was a loving mother and Nana by far. I remember the first time I made her laugh. It melted my heart. A great woman of strength, love,and devotion.. I'm glad she's in God's hands and no more pain or suffering yet I will miss you. We may not have been best friends but I honestly valued our times. We know who was the strongest. She used to say buckshot wouldn't pass until the day after she went well you beat him out Lady.. RIP. If you was ever blessed to know Maedean you met a fighter a woman of great strengths and a will to fight to survive for her children. She made me stronger and made me better by knowing her.
