On July 16, 2021, Our beloved mother and grandmother Ruth B Foxworth, at the age of 85, received her calling from the Lord. Mother Ruth B Foxworth was born in Marion County on October 10, 1935, to the Late Flemming Sanders and Mattie Baker Sanders. Ruth received her education from the Marion County School District located at the Weeping School Building in the friendship community.
Ruth was a renaissance woman. To know Ruth, is to have loved her. She was known to be brave, fearless, and true to the heart. Ruth spoke her mind. You would not have to assume what she was thinking, Ruth would tell you. Ruth leaves a legacy of being devoted to her family and friends. One her favorite songs was “May the works I’ve done speak for me”. Ruth favorite scripture was Psalms 23. Ruth was employed by CraftTech of Latta SC for over fifteen years. She could sew like the finest designers. Out of all the jobs Ruth had, she mostly enjoyed being a wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, aunt, and friend.
In holy matrimony to the Late Arthur Jr. Foxworth, Ruth B. Foxworth brought along two wonderful sons.
