Wilhelmina Haynes, daughter of the late Frank and Virginia Crawford, was born in Bonneau, South Carolina.
Wilhelmina was educated in the Berkeley County school system in South Carolina. As a young woman she left Bonneau S.C. for Boston,
MA. While in Boston she became a member of Concord Baptist Church, but visited St. Paul AME in Cambridge, where she met Arrindell
In June,1955 Arrindell and Wilhelmina were united in marriage, from which this blessed union came four daughters.
Wilhelmina worked various jobs before becoming a licensed cosmetologist. With her entrepreneurial spirit she worked in a couple of hair
salons in Cambridge, before opening her own salon, W. Haynes Beauty Salon. Her salon located on Western Avenue in Cambridge, was a
place where she not only worked, but met and made many friends.
Wilhelmina was a strong-willed, life loving, caring wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and cousin who will be dearly
missed. She was an excellent cook, who constantly wanted to feed you. She loved to travel on cruises, or across the country. One of her best
things to do was to "throw her line in the water", fry up and enjoy the catch. Let's not forget about her love for dancing during a good party!
Wilhelmina was preceded in death by her husband Arrindell, and daughter Brenda Evans. She leaves to cherish her memories daughters
