Obituary for KATINA GILES

Katina Wills Giles of Forestville, Maryland, was born on January 17, 1945, to the late Edward and Lola Wills. She was "coined" Aunt Tee by family and friends. On January 29, 2011, God sent an angel to take her home. Her physical body that is before us will one day be changed into a perfect glorified body.Katina was educated in the Calvert County Public School system. Earlier in life, she attended Mt. Hope United Methodist Church. Later in life, she attended special events at various churches. However, God was merciful. He stood waiting with outstretched hands beckoning to her, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest." Family and friends we announce to you that Christine, Elizabeth, Diane, Carla, Pastor Titus, and Joanie can attest to the fact that on January , 2011, on her hospital bed at Prince George's Hospital Center, Aunt Tee accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior. She was gloriously saved and her soul is in heaven today. From that day forward, she requested from those who visited her prayer and Bible reading.When she went home from the hospital, her niece, Carla, went to her bedroom to check on her. To Carla's surprise she was alone and singing, this is The Day That the Lord Has Made. Aunt Tee was showing those around her that God's Word, found in 2 Corinthians 5:17, is true. "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new." She had been given the grace to leave this world and enter into her eternal abode - Heaven.Aunt Tee was proud of her youthful days and loved telling us about her mischievous ways. She wanted her hair short and asked permission from her mother to cut it. She was told no and was promised a whooping - not a spanking - if she were to cut her hair. Aunt Tee was not threatened by the promise from her mother. So, she cut her hair and took her whooping from her mother. She was proud of the fact that she hated doing chores - especially getting water from the well. Aunt Tee knew her parents weren't going to let her go to the well after dark alone so she purposefully waited until dark to go to the well. Her sisters were made to go with her. They too got into trouble because she waited too late to get the water.Her parents had a rule that the girls, when going out, must go out together. One night her mother told her that she could not go out with her sisters. Aunt Tee cried all night long. In the morning her eyes were swollen and her pillow was soaking wet. Her mother thought she was sick and began attending to her - hoping she would feel better. Aunt Tee loved the special attention she got that day. Therefore, she saw no need to set the record straight.Aunt Tee loved life and had fun living it. Her family was very special to her. She made it a point to attend all family gatherings and she was the life of every one of them. She instituted a sisters' night out and looked forward to it each time they got together. She loved sports and enjoyed watching tennis with her sister, Elizabeth. In her younger years, Aunt Tee "attempted" various jobs. The most memorable one she talked about was driving a metro bus for Montgomery County Department of Transportation - the passengers got on her nerves - so she quit.In November of 1984, she was hired by the VA Medical Center in Washington, DC. During her 21- year tenure there, she worked in radiology and fiscal services performing a variety of duties. She retired from there in 2005. It was God's divine plan that she retire. Aunt Tee was needed to take care of her baby sister, Audrey Mae, whose health was failing.She leaves to mourn: one brother - Lee S. Wills (Melvalee) of Upper Marlboro; four sisters-Geraldine Holloway (Roy) of Sunderland, Christine Wills of Forestville, and Madeline Spriggs of Dunkirk; two god-children, Jynell Madison and JaJeanna Eason; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She had a special place in her heart for the Giles family (Edwin, Glenn, and Benjamin; Gilbert and Margie Ann Booth; Wilbert and Mary Booth; and James and Thelma Barnett. She also loved and adored the Shields' family and considered them to be some of her dearest friends.Preceding her in death were her parents Lola and Edward Wills; four brothers, Carroll and Nathaniel Holland, Leroy Jones, and Montgomery Wills; and two sisters, Rita Wills and Audrey Hall.
