The funeral service for Precious Waters-Stephens will be held on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at 11:00 A.M at the Friendship Baptist Church in Americus, Georgia. Burial will follow at the Mt. Creek AME Church in Andersonville, Georgia.


On January 29, 1999 a princess was born. Micquelyn Waters and Melvin Stephens welcomed PRECIOUS ARIE’ANNA WATERS-STEPHENS. Her fairy-tale journey began in Americus, Georgia. On March 30, 2019, Precious transitioned to be with God to continue her fairy tale.


PRECIOUS, known as “MeMe” to most, was very sassy. Sassy P was loved by many and literally could make anybody smile. She attended Springfield Baptist Church in Covington, Georgia.  Cherished by so many, the memories will be everlasting. She attended Sumter County Elementary School, Sumter County Middle School, and Americus High School. In August of 2013, she walked through the doors of Newton High School where she set the record as a queen. MeMe matriculated at the Fort Valley State University. She left everlasting memories and created hundreds of relationships: sisters, brothers, cousins, friends, the list goes on and on. MeMe will be remembered for her big personality, her laughter, her unique phrases, her goofiness, her clumsiness, but most of all her SMILE. That smile is one that will be missed, but one that we will cherish forever. Hairstylist, choreographer, baby-sitter, model, entertainer, DIVA, she could do it all.

I pray for strength beyond normal. My sympathy to you and your family. God does not cause death right now. Ecclesiastes 9:11. The Lords prayer "Thy kingdom come thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven."This is a Government this is what it will bring. Matthew 6:10; Dan 2:44. No more sickness, pain, mourning, no more death. Revelations 21:3-5. The dead will live again on Earth. Act 24:15. Look up all the scriptures you will see all this is true.

As it comes from him.
