Mrs. James was born January 16, 1943 in Phenix City, AL daughter of the late Julian Hunter Williford and Mildred Catherine Carden Williford. She had retired from the City of Opelika, AL after 16 years. Mrs. James loved time spent with family, and meeting friends in town for lunch and shopping. She was an avid gardener having a “green thumb” to grow a wide variety of flowers. Other past times include watching old movies and working crossword puzzles. A void has been left in our daily routine, but not in our hearts as she will always be remembered.
