Foxworth - Mary S. Foxworth, nee Woodbury, was
born in Marion County, S.C. November 19, 1853, where
she lived and where her earthly life closed May 26, 1904,
age 50 years, 7 months, and 7 days. She was married to
Mr. R.E. Foxworth of same county October 19, 1876, who
survives her. Her health had been failing for some time.
During her last illness her sufferings were extreme and
protracted, but she endured it patiently, and with calm
resignation, awaited her Heavenly Father's bidding. She
leaves husband and several children behind who sorrow
as those whose fondest earthly tie has been broken, for,
who can fill a mother's place! Still, they have a lively hope
of meeting her bye and bye whose faith was in Him and
hath said: "Whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall
neer die." One who knew her life for several years speaking
to the writer said: "It will be hard to fill her place."
She was a Methodist, a true friend, a faithful Sunday school
teacher, a good neighbor, a loving mother, and a devoted
wife. May God comfort her loved ones who are left behind.
